Prepared Childbirth

This class is being held virtually via Zoom until further notice.

These classes are designed to inform you about the intellectual, physical and emotional parts of the birth process. They emphasize exercise techniques for relaxation during labor, birth and after you’ve had your baby.

Classes are taught virtually on Zoom by veteran childbirth educator Janis Bell-Ryan Bush for UCI Health.

Each series has five (5) classes and meets from 6 to 9 p.m. Cost is free to attend.

We recommend choosing a class series that ends within about three (3) weeks of your due date.

Nursing students: Our patient health education workshops are for our patients. If want to attend this workshop, please register through this Nursing Student Registration form.

There is a limited capacity for nursing student attendees, and acceptance into the workshop is first-come, first-serve. If you’ve been accepted into the workshop, you’ll be contacted by the Patient Education Department with more information.
