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 through the month of May. 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. For your convenience, we offer Online Childbirth Education classes — review your options below.
Mayo Clinic continues to take precautions, and we hope to be back in the classroom meeting your education needs soon. We are still accepting registrations for in-person classes for the month of June and beyond. View our Classes & Events page to view dates and times.
Can’t come to a childbirth class? We’ll bring it to you! Consider the Understanding Birth eClass your go-to guide for answers you can trust on childbirth. This interactive online course covers essential information on labor and more, and highlights ways partners can help throughout the process. You’ll also get a sense of what labor is really like as you watch several birth stories.
You can access the eClass from any computer or mobile device with an Internet connection. Allow 4-6 hours to complete the course.
