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.
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.

Childbirth and Parenting Education 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 future reschedules will carry a $10 processing fee.
