Infant care and prenatal classes are among the best ways to prepare when you are pregnant or planning a pregnancy. The Star and Barry Tobias Health Awareness Center offers a full range of programs to help you be happy, healthy, and ready for labor and the care of your newborn. These programs are open to all pregnant and new moms and a spouse or support person, regardless of where you plan to deliver your baby.

We recommend that you register for programs by the fifth month of pregnancy and attend by the seventh month of pregnancy.
