Pathways to Education: Parenting + Life Skill Classes

We're here for you! Register for an In-Clinic ClassRegister for an Online Class

Since our organization began in 1999, providing educational resources has been one of the focal points of our mission. Sierra Pregnancy + Health believes that every individual, especially parents, have the opportunity to thrive when given access to great tools, accurate information, and encouragement. Thriving parents lead to healthy, thriving children and communities, which is why we are happy to provide all our classes, including parenting classes, at no cost, to the public.

3rd Trimester – Nurse-Taught Classes

Our nurse-taught classes are available to the public and free of charge. We offer a Labor and Delivery + Newborn Care class every other month and a Surviving the 1st Year class the opposite month. These classes are held at Sierra Pregnancy + Health and require advanced registration. Taught by a highly trained RN, attendees will learn how to best prepare for labor and delivery, care for their newborn baby, and what to expect in the 1st year of their baby’s life. This is a unique opportunity for parents to spend time with a medical professional learning essential insight and information.

Attendees may bring one support person.

All pregnant mothers will receive diapers, wipes, and a layette bag with baby supplies for attending.

These are two-hour classes, and registration is required, as space is limited.

Comprehensive Pregnancy Course

Once a month, we offer a FREE comprehensive Pregnancy Course covering all three trimesters of pregnancy. The course is held at Sierra Pregnancy + Health on Thursday evenings and attendees will be given free diapers, wipes, and incentives for baby supplies.

This course is recommended to be taken before 31 weeks of pregnancy.

One support person is allowed per attendee.

RSVP is required as space is limited.
