UI Childbirth Classes

Due to the unpredictable nature of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are offering classes virtually. Please check back frequently as more class offerings will be added soon. Please email childbirthclasses@uiowa.edu with questions. Thank you.

Classes are designed for expectant families between the 25th and 35th week of pregnancy, early registration is recommended as classes fill quickly. We have designed this program to promote a healthy pregnancy and help you achieve the most rewarding and fulfilling birth experience possible. We provide excellent and comprehensive preparation, information, and support for all expectant parents and their support persons. We encourage you to attend these special classes to prepare for labor and delivery and the time afterward.

We also encourage you to explore our virtual tours. These two tours allow you to see our Labor and Delivery suites and care facilities following your baby's delivery before stepping in the door.

Along with our tours you will also find a map of current entrances and exits as well as COVID-19 updates.
