3/1/21: Mayo Clinic’s Perinatal Education Program is still here for you 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. 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.

Class Offerings

What You Need to Know:

  • REGISTER EARLY – as soon as possible in your pregnancy. Class size is limited and classes fill quickly.
  • Payment is required with your registration, except for members of medical assistance, Minnesota U-Care or those needing a scholarship. Contact the Perinatal Education Office at 507-266-7473 for scholarship information, payment options, or if you have payment concerns. Credit card is the preferred payment method. Personal checks or money orders are also accepted.
  • All registered participants will receive a confirmation email.
  • To be eligible for a refund, please notify the perinatal education program (507-266-7473) at least three (3) business days prior to the beginning of your class. This will allow others on a waiting list the opportunity to attend. No refunds will be given after class begins.
  • You will be notified if the class that you have selected is full or has been cancelled. Other options will be offered to you at that time. Class cancellations due to severe weather are announced on our telephone message center (507-266-7473) and on the Perinatal Education website.
