Prenatal Education Classes

At Cedars-Sinai we have a deep appreciation for the importance of partnering with our families during this special time of pregnancy, childbirth, and beyond. This is an exciting time full of many changes-physical, emotional, and social. We would like to partner with you and guide you along this journey. We know that the more you know, the better prepared you will feel and the more confidence you will have.

At Cedars-Sinai Medical Center our Prenatal Program offers a wide variety of interesting and informative classes. In fact, no other medical center in the Los Angeles area offers as many childbirth and parenting classes as we do. We invite all expectant parents to attend our classes, even if they are not having their baby at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.


Maternity Tour

You are invited to take a tour of Cedars-Sinai's maternity unit. Our tour offers you an opportunity to become acquainted with our facility and services, as well as to meet our staff.

Please remember that our visitor policy does not permit guests younger than 18 on the tour.

Should you be unable to attend a Maternity Tour at our facility, please feel free to go online to enjoy our virtual tour of the maternity area. The tour provides information on where to go when you are ready to deliver and what you can typically expect when you arrive at the hospital, during your delivery, and when you are discharging from the hospital.
