Childbirth Education Classes for Expectant Parents

There are two class options that are offered at NO COST to the expectant parents.

  • A two-hour class that will meet four times (the first four Wednesdays of the month)
  • One eight-hour class that will meet on Saturday once a month

The expectant parent can bring one support person with them to the class. The support person can change from week to week, but only one support person may attend each week.

All classes will be held at Columbus Regional Hospital in the Innovation Center. Use Entrance 4 and take the elevators that are straight ahead. There will be signs when exiting the elevator to direct expectant parents to the correct meeting room.

To sign up, call Centralized Scheduling at 812.376.5500 and remain on the line to speak with a live person. The scheduler will reserve space in the class of the expectant parent’s choice.
