Childbirth Education Logos

Pregnancy, although joyous and exciting can also be one of the most stressful and busy times in your life. Even if you are excited at the thought of attending a childbirth education class and learning everything there is to know about childbirth, it’s hard to set aside 6-12 weeks of your valuable time to attend class, especially if your due date is right around the corner. It is also possible and understandable that you may not want to set aside that much time to learn what you need and set forth a plan of action.

We offer Iowa’s leading childbirth preparation classes in multiple locations in the Cedar Valley and Corridor areas for this very reason. We cover everything in just one or two classes so that you can get the information you want and need in a way that is concise, while still covering all the essentials and getting you back to your busy lifestyle. You can be sure that your instructor will provide you with non-judgmental educational support leaving you feeling confident and empowered no matter where your birth journey takes you.
