Massachusetts General Hospital
Childbirth Education Class

happy baby

Massachusetts General Hospital childbirth education classes are open to all Mass General obstetrical patients who are at least 32 weeks pregnant (at time of class), along with their partner or support person.

Classes are held at Mass General on Saturdays and Sundays from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm, and include a hospital tour and a one hour lunch break.

Taught by registered labor and delivery nurses and certified childbirth educators, class will cover the stages of labor, birth and postpartum; the signs of labor; when to come to the hospital; and strategies to help you and your support person cope with labor. You will also have the opportunity to practice breathing and relaxation exercises. Medical interventions including anesthesia options, Cesarean birth and induction of labor, as well as immediate postpartum care and the newborn will be covered.

Please note:

  • Wear comfortable clothing
  • Feel free to bring food and beverages as there is nowhere to purchase these items in the Yawkey Building. The main hospital cafeteria is open for lunch
  • We will be using yoga mats for breathing and relaxation exercises, so you may want to bring a pillow for added comfort

Cancellation policy:

A minimum of 5 couples are required to run the class. If the minimum number do not pre-register, we will cancel that class by Thursday of the week of the class. If you are notified that your class was canceled, you may re-register for another class of your choice.

If you need to cancel, you must do so by the Thursday before your class is scheduled or you will be charged a $50.00 cancellation fee. If you need to cancel due to a medical issue that precludes you from attending or because you have delivered your baby already, we will provide a full refund.
