Childbirth and Parenting Classes

Congratulations and Welcome to Families in Bloom Prepared Childbirth and Parenting Classes! Whether this is your first pregnancy or your fourth or you are planning to adopt, Families in Bloom will prepare you for your journey into parenthood and the newest addition to your family!

I offer a variety of classes to suit all of your needs. Your classes are centrally located, in a quiet and relaxed atmosphere. Classes are offered on weekends to accommodate your busy work schedule or weeknight classes are also available. Your classes can be taken individually or as a series. Private classes are also available on an as needed basis, for an additional fee. I recommend you take your classes between 32-36 weeks just in case your little one decides to make an early appearance.
