Mayo Clinic’s Perinatal Education Program is still here for you providing education and support during this unprecedented time. We are temporarily cancelling all in-person classes and Family Birth Center tours until further notice. This decision is in line with precautions advised by the Centers for Disease Control to limit possible transmission of COVID-19, and to keep our campuses safe for you, patients and staff.
