Understanding Childbirth - In-Person

PLEASE NOTE: These classes are in-person. If you would prefer to attend a live, virtual, instructor-led birthing class, please register for our Preparing for Childbirth-Live Virtual Session.

Our Understanding Childbirth class is a series of 2.5 hour classes that meet once a week for three consecutive weeks. These in-person classes will help you and your partner prepare for the physical and emotional experiences that may come with your labor, delivery, and postpartum periods. Classes are taught by an HonorHealth Labor & Delivery RN. While this class may be taken any time during pregnancy, it is suggested to take this series near the beginning of the 3rd trimester. Hospital guidelines for social distancing will be followed and masks will be required.

Class fee is for expecting mom and partner/support person. If you are bringing a partner/support person, you must register them under "guest".

The classes will meet once a week for three weeks on the following dates:

  • First class:12/6/22
  • Second class: 12/13/22
  • Third class: 12/20/22

Class topics include:

The class will be held in the Brady Conference Center at the Scottsdale Shea Medical Center. The conference center is located on the first floor.
