When to Take Classes
You may begin classes at any time in your pregnancy; however, we recommend completing all prenatal classes in your second trimester, when mom is comfortable and has time to practice what she learned. Moms expecting multiples should consider beginning classes before 20 weeks. Remember to register for classes early to ensure the classes you select are available.
Class Sizes (Private & Group)
All of our group classes have a pre-determined maximum and minimum number of participants. Any class not meeting the minimum number may be canceled, and every effort will be made to offer an acceptable alternative. Some of our classes are offered on a private basis only, and any group class can be taught on a private basis if that better meets your needs. Requests for private classes can be made by calling 303-788-6251.
Costs for individual classes can be found during ONLINE CLASS REGISTRATION or by calling 1-866-7SWEDISH (866-779-3347).
