Alert

4/26/21: Mayo Clinic’s Perinatal Education Program here in Rochester, MN is still providing education and support during this unprecedented time with in-person classes, some 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. Safety measures are 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 choose not to take in-person classes, we still have the following eClasses available: Understanding Birth, Understanding Breastfeeding, Understanding Infant and Child Safety, and Understanding Your Newborn.

Grandparenting Class

A relaxed, fun and informative session for expectant or new grandparents. Even if your grandchild will be born elsewhere, you are welcome to attend.

Topics include:

  • Childbirth and parenting today
  • Grandparenting/memory making
  • Encouragement versus advice
  • Safety reminders
  • Long-distance grandparenting
  • Tour of obstetric facilities

Please only include two persons per registration.  Each set of grandparents should register separately.  Cost of $10 is for one set of grandparents.  Each set of grandparents that attend will receive a packet of educational materials. 

Please note: Some dates of our Grandparenting classes are being held via Mayo Clinic's use of the Zoom platform. Zoom classes are noted next to the dates below.

All registered participants will receive a confirmation email within one hour after registering (be sure to check your e-mail junk folder if you don't see the e-mail in your inbox).
