Classes are taught by certified childbirth educators in partnership with Parent Trust for Washington Children's Great Starts (PTWC/GS).

Pre-registration is required. Full payment is due at registration. All fees cover two people; for example, a pregnant parent and one support person. ProviderOne cards are accepted as payment for one birth series for qualifying pregnant mothers, and scholarships through PTWC/GS are also available.
