Online Childbirth Education & Breastfeeding Classes

If you can’t make it to an in-person class at one of PinnacleHealth’s facilities, we have options for learning online. Our Online Childbirth Education Program is a convenient alternative for expectant parents who cannot attend a conventional prepared childbirth class due to bed rest, scheduling conflicts or time constraints.

These classes also are useful as an additional resource for repeat parents who are interested in refreshing their knowledge. The interactive web-based online learning program includes animated illustrations, videos, voice-overs, and games.

Students who have questions will continue to have access to a childbirth educator, even after classes have ended. To take advantage of this additional resource at a special reduced fee, parents must register for a childbirth class and the online class at the same time. Registration fee: $10 in addition to the in-person childbirth class fee.
