Online Childbirth Classes Series 1

Education is Empowerment

Gain Confidence & Calm with Childbirth Classes

Research shows that people who take childbirth education classes are better prepared for labor and delivery, are more likely to achieve their birth plan, and less likely to experience psychological distress during or after birth. 

Our goal is help families feel as confident and prepared as possible for their Baby's arrival.

The Womb Room's in-person and online Evidence-Based Childbirth Classes are led by highly trained and experienced Birth Educators. All of our classes are also offered privately, to match your learning style and preferences.

What are the Benefits of Birthing Classes?

Improve Outcomes

Evidence-based education improves the likelihood of positive birth experiences.

Gain Confidence

Knowledge reduces uncertainty and anxiety, planning and expectations.

Frequently Answered Questions

about Childbirth & Birthing Classes

What do Childbirth Classes Teach?

Childbirth Classes empower birthing families with information to understand and navigate the process of labor and birth, as smoothly as possible. It is about answering the most burning questions, as well as those families don't know to ask, such as when to head to the hospital, what to expect in each of the stages of labor, self-advocacy techniques, how to improve your chances of achieving the birth you desire, and what to do if things veer off course.

Our Education classes are Evidence-Based and have been carefully and thoughtfully created by our team of Birth Experts to give you the tools you need and to build your birthing confidence, in a fun and friendly atmosphere.

Can I bring my Partner?

We highly recommend bringing your birthing partner to all of your Childbirth Classes. This can be a spouse, friend, parent, or anyone who you plan to have support you in your labor and baby's birth. Much of the curriculum is focused on communicating with and utilizing your support people to improve your experience of labor and birth.

What should I expect from my Childbirth Class?

Our Childbirth Classes consist of groups of up to 10 people or couples, meeting online or in-person to learn about and prepare for childbirth. Is childbirth class worth it? Absolutely. Studies prove education improves birth outcomes, reduces c-sections, and improves self-reported birth satisfaction, while decreasing birth trauma. For these reasons, we thoroughly believe in quality education for everyone!


We'd love for you to take a look at our Reviews to see for yourself, just how helpful our classes are have been for others. Chances are, if you are asking the question, "Should I take a childbirth class?" -- the answer is absolutely yes!

What is a Childbirth Educator?

A Childbirth Educator is someone who has completed formal training in learning the ins-and-outs of birth (pun intended!), and uses this knowledge to teach expectant families the information, skills and strategies to achieve a positive and empowering birth experience.

When is the best time to take Childbirth Classes?

It is recommended to complete your education between 24-36 weeks of Pregnancy. You want the information to be fresh, but you don't want to risk missing classes due to an early birth!

How can I find Childbirth Classes near me?

While there are certainly benefits of attending Childbirth classes in person, our online Childbirth Classes have made it possible for everyone to access quality education from anywhere in the world!

If you're in or near Baltimore, MD, join us for in-person classes at one of our studio locations! If elsewhere, our Online Childbirth Classes could be a great option for you.  Check out the Schedule for options.

What to wear to Childbirth Classes?

You'll want to wear something comfortable that you can move around in, such as yoga clothes or loungewear. No class activities involve or require any special clothing.

What to bring to Childbirth Classes?

The only thing you need to bring is a snack. All of our classes have breaks so you can take a breather, grab a bite to tame that pregnancy hunger, and use the bathroom (again 😅).  If you're attending something like an in person breastfeeding class, you still don't need to bring anything unless you're told to, or you want to ask one of our experts for advice!

Are Childbirth Classes covered by Insurance?

Sometimes! Many expecting parents are able to receive reimbursement from their insurance companies for their Childbirth Education Classes. The Womb Room happily supports this process by providing you with the necessary documentation required to seek this reimbursement.


That being said, it is best to call your insurance company ahead of time to determine what type of coverage to expect.

Do you accept FSA's or HSA's for Childbirth Classes?

Yes! Simply choose the Paypal option when checking out for any Womb Room Class or service.

Do you offer Private Childbirth Classes?

Yep! The Womb Room offers Private Classes Online or In-Person, by request, and Group and Private Childbirth Classes in Baltimore. Register here, and contact us with any questions!
