Thank you for allowing HCA Midwest Health System's Healthy Arrivals to provide childbirth education at this special time in your life. Please take a moment and read the important information on this page before perusing our class schedule.
Labor Coaches/Birth Partners
Coaches/Partners are encouraged to attend all classes and listed fees are per couple unless otherwise indicated. Mom, just register yourself - your coach's name does not need to be listed for registration on this website. It can result in double charging of the class fee.
For the first time family we recommend: Preparation for Childbirth (Lamaze labor & delivery class), Breastfeeding Successfully and Baby Basics 101 (infant care at home-the first few weeks).
To register online, a credit/debit card payment is required. If you cannot use a credit card, you need to call our office at (913) 438-4773 to sign up for your classes. If the class you want to enroll in is full, please call our office to be placed on a waiting list. We want to hear from you.
If possible, try to take your classes at the hospital where you plan to deliver so you will become familiar with the facility. Please note, if you have schedule conflicts, you can take classes at any of our five hospital sites. For class location, it is imperative to click on 'Map' as some classes are not at the hospital site (i.e. Overland Park Education Center). Please allow time for the maps to download.
Your e-mail class confirmation will tell you what supplies you need to bring to class. Please feel free to brings drinks and snacks to any of our classes. Your comfort is important to us.
Please arrive early enough to sign in and find a seat. If you are unfamiliar with the facility, allow yourself plenty of time to locate it the day of class. Also - room temperature may vary depending on season, number of class participants and your stage of pregnancy. So our suggestion is to layer your clothing so you can adjust according to your personal needs.
