This item is not available to order online. Please contact us or call 800.326.2082 x2 for pricing and further details.

Now you can be sure that parents who can’t make it to an on-site or virtual class, or those who simply prefer the convenience of online learning, can access essential information about labor and delivery. When you add the Understanding Birth eClass to your education program, you can trust that it matches the information offered in your live classes—it’s evidence-based, video-rich, and engaging. Plus, you can generate additional revenue for your organization if you choose to charge for the eClass.

Prefer to keep educators more involved? Use the eClass as part of a blended model. Parents complete the online childbirth class ahead of time and then attend a short educator-led session focused on answering questions, group discussion, and hands-on activities. Its the best of both worlds!
