Looking for an Awesome Parenting or Childbirth Class?
Who Are These Classes For?
As a non-profit organization, we provide these classes as a free community service to teen, single, and married mothers who are facing unexpected pregnancies. If you are taking a birth and baby preparation class, it’s best to register for one that ends at least THREE weeks before your due date. That way you won’t miss the last birth preparation classes if your baby is born early. Don’t delay registering! We open registration for our classes two months before the class start date, and they fill quickly.
