Roper St. Francis Women’s Services is pleased to offer convenient and helpful resources designed to help educate you about what lies ahead with your newborn.
We believe that there is no one-size-fits-all approach to childbirth, and the same holds for childbirth education. That’s why we offer online resources and two class options: our traditional classes, taught by RSF professionals and held at our facilities, and an online option, that allows you to learn at your own pace and at your convenience.
We offer more than 14 comprehensive in-person classes, covering everything from prenatal yoga to breastfeeding basics to prepping big brothers, sisters and pets and how to administer infant CPR. To learn more about our in-person classes or to register, visit our class calendar
Parents are busy people, and beyond convenience, some may prefer to learn about something as intimate as childbirth and breastfeeding in the comfort and privacy of your own home.
Our two online classes are free resources that allow you to learn at your pace, giving an overview of what to expect during labor and different childbirth techniques, as well as a breastfeeding basics course.
