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.

The Childbirth and Parenting Education Office will be closed on the following days for holiday observance:
Monday, May 29, 2017, and Tuesday, July 4, 2017


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.

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.

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 $10 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. If you need to change a reservation, please contact the Childbirth and Parenting Education Office at 310-423-5168. Office hours: Monday-Friday, 10 a.m.-6 p.m.

Because enrollment is limited, full cancellation refunds are only available for medical reasons or if your baby is born before the start of your scheduled class. All other refund requests must be received at least seven days prior to the start date of the class.

There is a $25 nonrefundable processing fee for cancellation after you are registered for the Cedars-Sinai Childbirth Series and Hands ON! Hands down! Labor Comfort and Support classes. There is a $15 nonrefundable processing fee for all other classes. This fee will be deducted from your refund. Please allow seven to 10 business days for all refunds. No refunds will be issued for missed classes.
