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.

General Life Skills + Parenting Classes

These FREE monthly in-person and online classes are designed to encourage and support men and women through a wide range of topics, such as:

  • Love and making healthy life choices
  • Finances + budgeting support
  • Positive relationships
  • Healing, grief, and mental health awareness
  • How to co-parent well
  • Being a father
  • Parenting a toddler

We have been blessed a lot...

I completed all the lessons I/we have been blessed a lot by going through these lessons. May the Lord continue blessing you and the whole team and your families for all the work you do to bless the families by teaching all these very important parenting principles. – E.B.

The lessons learned are enough incentive...

Hi Regarding the incentives, I want to also say thanks on behalf of everyone who benefitted from these classes and training, the incentives are definitely a plus, but after going through some of the classes, the lessons learned are enough incentive; however I will be happy to select something I need and its the tools, our family had a house fire and we lost everything, so I’m desperately needing tools.  – E.B.

I wish I had known this before...

Hi, thank you very much. I have been enjoying the classes so much! I wish I had known this before so I can be a better Mom but even now i have the knowledge and i will try to start it.  – A.C.

This is the best program...

This is the best program I have ever had i love it. May God bless you and all your time for the wonderful work that you are doing it’s awesome. – A.C.

it means the world to my growing family...

I have recommended it to others...

I have really enjoy my time with the parenting classes and Sierra pregnancy and I have recommended it to others. – R.C.

I am really liking the classes!

I am really liking the classes! I feel like I am learning a lot. This is why I end up taking so many notes. I am really excited about some of the new classes that were added to the updated list too! – M.P.

I can't pass on an offer...

Awe thank you so much! I just feel like I can’t pass on an offer that is going to teach me something so helpful for our future child! – H.S.

...took 11 pages of notes...

I did take about an entire day to listen to the class and took 11 pages of notes because the class is very specific and detailed in information to make a new mother feel like she is winning! I even shared that with the director when I picked up the baby seat. If there is ever a way or a chance for me to retake this class even down the road it would be amazing … amazing for me! That class offers information a woman can’t get anywhere. – M.L

Thank you. I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate these classes and this program, I have learned so much and I love the foundation of the videos. It has relieved so much stress about unknowns and is really helping me prepare mentally for all the things I have yet to experience! 1. Discipline isn’t spelled PUNISHMENT 2. Improve your child’s self-confidence 3. Caution, anger ahead 4. Birth order 5. Standing up to technology.
