Childbirth and Parenting 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.


Maternity Tours

Come get acquainted — we invite you to take a complimentary tour of Cedars-Sinai's maternity unit. Please note: All Cedars-Sinai Childbirth Series classes include a tour. However, complimentary free-standing maternity tours are also available. Our tour offers you an opportunity to become acquainted with our facility and services, as well as to meet our staff.

Advance registration is required. To register, please visit our Maternity Tours page.

Phone: 310-423-5168

Please Choose Your Class Date Carefully

Because class sizes are limited, advance registration is required. A set of confirmation emails with the date, time and location of your classes, as well as parking information, will be sent to you automatically following your completed registration. If you do not receive a confirmation email within 24 hours, please contact the Childbirth and Parenting Education Office at 310-423-5168. Office hours: Monday-Friday, 10 a.m.-6 p.m.

Rescheduling Classes

Classes may be rescheduled one time without a fee, as long as the request is made 48 hours prior to the start date. All subsequent reschedules will carry a $25 processing fee. Any reschedule request made less than 48 hours prior to the class start date will carry a $25 processing fee (this includes rescheduling after a missed class). Due to the size and volume of these classes, we cannot guarantee availability for reschedules.

Cancellations and Refund Policy

Full cancellation refunds are only available for medical reasons or if your baby is delivered prior to the start of your scheduled class. Cancellations made at or earlier than two weeks (14 days) prior to the start of class will receive a refund, minus the $25 nonrefundable processing fee. Cancellations made less than two weeks prior to the start of class will be refunded 50 percent of the amount paid. Please allow seven to 10 business days for all refund processing. No refunds will be issued for missed classes.
