There is no fee to attend this class!  Please register yourself and one support person.  If you wish to bring more than one support person, please register them separately.

This class has been switched to an ONLINE class and will NOT meet in person at the hospital related to the COVID-19 restrictions. Enjoy the class while sitting on your couch.  Also, please have the Gift of Motherhood book that you received at your 24 week gestation appointment available as I will reference information from this book during the class.
