The Cesarean Option

 The Cesarean Option is a complimentary 1.5-hour class offered exclusively for healthy mothers planning or considering an elective cesarean birth. This class is offered monthly and led by our own labor and delivery nurses who are also certified childbirth educators.

Our goal is to share the pros and cons of cesarean birth with you, discuss the birth and recovery processes for both vaginal and cesarean birth, and ensure you have all the facts to make an informed choice.

Mothers having a cesarean birth for medical reasons are encouraged to attend the Cesarean Birth class to learn how to optimize their cesarean birth and recovery, understand the process, and address anxieties surrounding cesarean birth in a supportive environment.

Pre-registration is required for The Cesarean Option. Dates listed below do not guarantee availability. Class enrollment is on a first-come, first-served basis. 

All classes are held at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. Please refer to the map of Childbirth and Parenting Class Locations (PDF) for more information. Please check the directions yourself by GPS or other means, to ensure that you know where you are going before you leave.
