Alert

11/4/20: Mayo Clinic’s Perinatal Education Program is still here for you providing education and support during this unprecedented time with in-person classes, virtual-interactive live classroom offerings on Zoom, and online eClass options. We are taking every precaution to ensure that the health and safety of our class participants and educators remain a top priority. New safety measures will be in place for in-person classes that include reduced class sizes, room arrangement that supports safe distancing, health screening of participants, and a requirement for everyone to wear a mask through the duration of the class. If you are currently registered for a class you will be contacted with further information. We will continue to offer the four eClasses available online if you choose not to take in-person classes: Understanding Birth, Understanding Breastfeeding, Understanding Infant and Child Safety, and Understanding Your Newborn.
