Birth Essentials is an information-packed Saturday class held online that offers the basics to prepare you for childbirth.

The cost is $65. Medicaid covers this class, and some insurance companies offer reimbursement. We encourage you to check your plan benefits for more details.
Participants must register to attend. You will receive an email with Zoom meeting details and information on how to obtain your class materials a few days before class begins.
