Classes offered through The Gathering Place are more personal and typically smaller in size than classes offered in hospitals. Our classes are taught by certified, knowledgeable and experienced instructors. You can choose to enroll in our "core" classes - a childbirth education series/weekend instensive, Breastfeeding Basics and Your Amazing Newborn which are each offered monthly. You can also select a la carte from the variety of specialty classes we offer on a quarterly rotating basis.
Below is a list of classes we offer for parents and soon-to-be parents, as well as those training for certification. Pre-registration is recommended for all classes with the exception of drop-in classes or groups.
- Giving Birth with Confidence
- Baby Maybe?
- Going Back to Work
- Footsteps (a group for moms)
- Infant Safety, CPR & Basic First Aid
Our instructors devote quite a bit of time and energy into preparing for their classes and workshops. Please take the time to let us know in advance if there is a reason you are unable to attend a class for which you are registered.
