Preparing for Your Labor and Delivery

Congratulations on the upcoming birth of your child! We look forward to sharing this special event with you. We encourage you to prepare for your labor and delivery by taking prenatal education classes. We offer a wide range of in-person and online classes to help you and your family prepare for your new baby. Online courses are available in multiple languages for growing families across the state. In-person classes and hospital tours are offered at both Presbyterian Hospital and Presbyterian Rust Medical Center. Virtual tours are also available below.

Sign Up for Prenatal Education and Support

Our prenatal classes include important information to help you prepare for the last weeks of pregnancy, labor and birth, and breastfeeding. These classes also help you and your family members learn to care for your newborn, including special classes for partners and grandparents.

If this is your first baby, we recommend the following classes:

  • Prep For Birthing

  • Breastfeeding Basics

  • Baby Basics and Beyond

  • For Dads Only

  • Basic Infant CPR
