At Atrium Health, we believe the best way for us to provide continuous, exceptional care is to make sure our patients are inspired and informed. Atrium Health Union offers childbirth and child care classes to help you prepare for your baby’s arrival.

Our free, four-week series of classes will give you a better understanding of childbirth and how to care for your newest family member.

To ensure the safety of our patients, we are suspending non-essential, in-person hospital programs including prenatal education classes and tours. All prenatal education classes will be held virtually until further notice.

Childbirth Preparation Classes

This is a monthly series of four consecutive classes that provide information to expectant mothers and their support partners about the last months of pregnancy, labor and delivery, early postpartum and routine newborn procedures.

Topics include:

  • The birth process

All class and tours are free. Registration for classes is required.
