Birth Matters Prenatal Classes

Prenatal Classes

Prenatal classes are designed for opportunities to address each of our clients’ concerns. Our supportive learning environment provides a safe, inclusive, and fun space that welcomes all questions and discussions. The classes are also an ideal chance to meet other expectant families in the community.

 

All prenatal classes include group discussions, videos, demonstrations, online home study modules, handouts, and ample time to practice techniques. See our offering of prenatal classes below and book to save your spot today.
