UofL Hospital’s Center for Women & Infants' Beautiful Beginnings offers free pregnancy and child care classes to everyone.

Each class covers a wide variety of topics such as:

  • understanding normal body changes during pregnancy
  • signs of true labor
  • comfort techniques
  • medical procedures
  • vaginal delivery
  • Cesarean delivery
  • Kangaroo Care
  • postpartum care
  • infant nutrition and breastfeeding
  • infant care

We suggest registering for a class during the second trimester or after 20 weeks of pregnancy. Medical students and others wishing to attend for educational purposes are also welcome.

2022 Schedule -- VIRTUAL

All 2022 classes are held virtually via Zoom. A link to access the class will be emailed prior to the class. The Center for Women & Infants will also provide a prenatal class packet to those who register ahead of time. This will be mailed to the address provided during registration. 

You may choose from two different timing formats: full-day Saturday classes or weekday classes split into two sessions. The weekday classes will include half of the information in each session, so it is important to attend both days in order to gain the full benefits.

  • Tuesdays, June 14 and 21: 6-8 p.m.
  • Saturday, Aug. 13: 9 a.m. – 1 p.m.
  • Wednesdays, Oct. 19 and 26: 6-8 p.m.
  • Saturday, Dec. 10: 9 a.m. – 1 p.m.

Please register for the desired date by filling out the form below. If you have additional questions, please email Jaki Sorrell at jaki.patterson@uoflhealth.org.
