What you'll learn in this childbirth class:

Wondering about the benefits of a Lamaze Class, but want to take a “test drive” first?  Treat yourself to lunch out and then head to GW Hospital to learn a little about Lamaze! 

This class will allow you to meet an instructor, see some current parents taking a class and get a sneak peak at what our classes cover.  Plan on visiting us at GW Hospital some time during your second trimester, no matter where you plan to take your actual class.  You’ll want to actually finish your real class about 4-6 weeks before your due date.

There is NO registration fee, but to prepare for your arrival, please complete the registration process and you will see confirmation that this is a free event.   Attendance will help you learn more about the benefits of preparing for birth with a Lamaze class and you will receive a  GIFT CERTIFICATE for up to $20.00 to apply to any future class with DC Lamaze!

Confirmation emails for this class are sent out on Wednesday evenings
