Preparation for Childbirth Class

Due to the current rise in Covid-19 cases in our community, in-person classes are suspended at this time. If you would be interested in a Preparation for Childbirth book or a short virtual class with our perinatal educator please contact Holly Scott at 317-421-1986 or by email

When in-person classes are able to resume, we will post the next upcoming dates.

The class has been developed as a 2-hour session briefly covering all the main topics of labor and delivery with opportunities for Q&A. There are discussions on what to expect with labor, delivery and after birth for you and baby at the MHP Maternity Care Unit. The recommendation is to attend the class during the third trimester of your pregnancy. Please bring any questions you have with you to class!

Classes are free, 2 hours in length, and are offered once every other month. Only one registration is needed per couple. Dress comfortably and feel free to bring snacks and drinks with you to class. Due to limited class size, pre-registration is required.

If you are unable to attend in person but would be interested in some online educational sources, have other questions, or would like the classroom book to view on your own please contact the perinatal educator at 317-421-1986.
