Childbirth & Parenting Classes at Meriter

We believe each birth is a special event! To help you prepare for childbirth and parenting through the first year, we offer a variety of classes and new parent groups to educate and support all families. 

Classes currently being offered: 

If you prefer a self-paced, online option, you can register for Understanding Birth eClass: Essentials for Birth, Babies & Breastfeeding. This eclass is available in 8 languages.   

Please click on the class names above to see available dates and register. We suggest you take our classes between weeks 24 and 35 of your pregnancy. 

We know that it can be frustrating that our classes and services are still being offered virtually only. We appreciate your patience as we prepare for a new space that is currently under construction and will be opening in 2023. Please continue to check back for in-person events. We are so excited to be able to share this new space with you when it opens. 

Class dates are added regularly. If you are not finding the class or group you want, please contact us at: MSN_FamilyHealth@unitypoint.org or 608-417-8446

Accepted forms of payment for classes & events: Visa, MasterCard & Discover. 

Tuition assistance and scholarships may be available. Please contact us for more information.
