Pregnancy is a journey filled with questions and new experiences. For new moms, the learning doesn’t stop after a child is born. That’s why Sky Ridge Medical Center offers a comprehensive list of classes through our Parent/Family Education program. Class offerings range from Childbirth Preparation to our newest additions: Boot Camp for New Moms and Healthy Pregnancy.

Childbirth Preparation is a four-week course for couples that will give you the knowledge you need in order to prepare for the choices you'll make before and during childbirth. A tour of the Birth Center is included. The class will also help you prepare for after your baby is born. 

Don't have four weeks? The Childbirth Preparation – Fast Track is a condensed program offered in one convenient weekend session. The Childbirth Preparation – Express is a six-hour "just the facts" class for those couples who just want the basics are are unable to attend the longer programs.

Boot Camp for New Moms is a three-hour course that gives you the skills to more easily transition to new motherhood, raising a baby, and co-parenting. Some of the things you will learn will be to form a parenting team, create an action plan, bring out the best in your partner, communicate more effectively, and empathize with your partner’s unique perspective and journey through pregnancy, birth and parenthood. 

This class is also a great opportunity to build a strong parenting network. Veteran moms are involved in the class to share what they have learned and offer tips for new moms. Boot Camp for New Moms is held at Sky Ridge every first Saturday of the month.

The Guide to a Healthy Pregnancy course is intended to guide expecting mothers through pregnancy. Participants explore what to expect at appointments with care providers, learn how to navigate morning sickness and changing hormones, and discuss the importance of nutrition, bonding with your baby, relaxation and trusting your body. 

Expecting parents will also get a peek into the Labor and Delivery unit at Sky Ridge. This class is best for pregnant women and their partners prior to 23 weeks gestation.

The full list of classes for parents and other family members is listed online. To register, please call the Baby Line at (720) 225-BABY (2229) or visit and click on Classes and Events. Pre-payment is required to secure your registration.
