teamGroup Classes: Enjoy Learning With Others

The Family Maternity Center offers a wide variety of group classes for women and families to prepare for childbirth and the joys and challenges of caring for newborn infants. Our offerings include childbirth, infant care and breastfeeding classes. Some of the classes include tours of the Family Maternity Center, or you can register for a separate group tour.

When signing up for classes, please keep in mind that attendance is usually recommended in your last trimester, finishing about a month before your expected due date.

Early Registration is highly recommended for the best selection of dates!

Learn On-line

We offer an Online Childbirth Class “Understanding Birth” covering pregnancy, labor, medical procedures, newborns, and postpartum.

DVD Rental

If you prefer to learn on your own, or you are on bedrest, you can rent educational materials covering childbirth, breastfeeding, infant care and infant CPR. Fees include a two-week DVD loan and a class manual that you can keep.  We just need a valid credit card for security when you order the materials.

For more information about independent learning options, call us at (585) 473-2229 or email hhclasses@urmc.rochester.edu.
