5/11/2020: Mayo Clinic’s Perinatal Education Program is still here for you providing education and support during this unprecedented time. We have temporarily cancelled all in-person Perinatal Education classes and Family Birth Center tours, currently through the month of June. This decision is in line with precautions advised by the Centers for Disease Control to limit possible transmission of COVID-19, and to keep our campuses safe for you, our patients and our staff. We currently have four eClasses available online: Understanding Birth, Understanding Breastfeeding, Understanding Infant and Child Safety, and Understanding Your Newborn. We will continue to provide this format for learning until in-person classes can resume. Mayo Clinic continues to take a lot of precautions, and we hope to be back in the classroom meeting your education needs soon. Please note: We are still accepting registrations for in-person classes the month of July and beyond. We are also working on getting June 17th and later class dates for Breastfeeding and Pumping 101 and Infant Passenger Safety up as real-time Zoom options. So we are still taking registrations for those two classes for limited dates in June.
