The birth of your child is a unique and cherished event for you and your family. At the completion of one of our classes, we want you to feel empowered, well-prepared and confident as you get closer to the birth of your baby. Our classes are designed with you in mind. They are taught by certified instructors and we limit the class size to no more than 12 couples so we can give every participant personal attention. We offer a variety of classes to support you through birth, baby and beyond. For a list of classes, view our 2013 Preadmission and Schedule of Classes or our 2014 Preadmission and Schedule of Classes booklet below or our Wellness Programs and Events page.

All Birth Center classes have requirements for minimum and maximum numbers of attendees. If a class is cancelled or rescheduled, we will notify you and reschedule or refund your money. If you must cancel a reservation for a class, please call (719) 571-3101 as soon as possible so we can open the class to others who may be on a waiting list.
Our new online childbirth class is the perfect alternative for busy parents needing a flexible class schedule or for moms on bed rest. Have you given birth before? This online class is a great refresher course! While nothing can replace the personal connection of an on-site childbirth class, you’ll learn the same essential information, including what’s happening to your changing body, how you’ll know when you are really in labor, helpful comfort techniques, advice for partners, an overview of medical procedures, and much more.
For more information or to register, call Family Education 719-571-3125 or Class Registration 719-571-3101.
We encourage parents-to-be to tour the Birth Center. Tours are included in all childbirth classes, can be taken during one of our regularly scheduled tour dates listed in our 2013 Preadmission and Schedule of Classes and 2014 Preadmission and Schedule of Classes 2014 booklets or you can get a sneak peak by taking a virtual tour. You will see the preadmission office, observation area, birthing rooms, nursery, family waiting areas and other areas important to your stay and will learn about your birth options, hospital procedures and services.
