The Family Birth Center offers prenatal classes on a broad variety of childbirth and infant care topics.

Especially if this is your first pregnancy — and even if it isn't — we encourage you and your spouse, partner or co-parent to take prenatal classes and a birth center tour.

It’s generally recommended to start prenatal classes at the beginning of your third trimester. However, it's really up to you and what works best for your family and schedule.

Choose from our selection of:

  • Prenatal classes in Hyde Park on our main medical campus
  • Prenatal classes in Harvey at our University of Chicago Medicine Ingalls Memorial campus
  • Online prenatal classes (an option for several of our Hyde Park classes)

Registration is required.
