Online Childbirth Education

While nothing can replace the warmth, interaction and camaraderie of a classroom environment, our convenient online childbirth class—offered with Wheaton Franciscan Healthcare, part of Ascension—is an interactive program that uses videos, personal birth stories, animations, activities and games to teach you all of the essential information you need to know to prepare for birth. It’s ideal for expectant parents who can’t attend on-site childbirth classes due to work schedules, time constraints or medical conditions. Learn more and register now on
