Childbirth, Parenting & Family Classes

Childbirth, Parenting & Family Classes

Ready to have a baby?  With our classes, you will be.

You’ll find endless books about childbirth and parenting, but there’s nothing like the kind of learning you gain from a class. You’ll get to hear from an expert educator, take part in hands-on activities, and most of all, ask questions.

Learn more about what we offer in Pregnancy & Childbirth, Newborns & Parenting, Family Members, Postpartum Support, and Exercise & Wellness Classes. You can also search by location (below), or visit our class schedule.

We highly recommend that first-time parents take at least one class in Childbirth Preparation, Newborn Care, and Breastfeeding. It’s a good idea to register for classes early, and to have completed them about four to six weeks before your due date.

All class prices cover the cost of two people attending, unless otherwise noted. Dads or other birth partners are strongly encouraged to join the mom-to-be.

Register online and pay by credit card, or call 206-215-3338 to pay by check or DSHS Medical Insurance.
