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 some of our classes and services are still being offered virtually only. While we recognize the benefit of in person events and learning opportunities, as a health system, our highest priority is making sure our patients and our staff are safe. This is especially true for our most vulnerable populations, including those too young to be vaccinated and pregnant persons. We appreciate your patience and look forward to welcoming back in-person offerings when the time is right. 

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. 

Student observation of our courses requires advanced approval. Please contact the Family Health Education department.
