Whether you are expecting a baby for the first time or have other children, all parents have questions about birth and caring for their newborn. Childbirth Education classes give you the opportunity to become familiar with the choices you have and will help you make informed decisions about your labor, your birth and your baby.
Our childbirth classes follow the content and time guidelines recommended by Lamaze International and the Boston Association of Childbirth Educators. All of our instructors are certified in their area.
Maternity Tours are held once or twice a week at 5:30 pm. Register at 617-243-6649.

Our exercise and fitness classes are designed to accommodate various levels and abilities. Instructors are always able to suggest ways of adapting any class or workout to meet your individual needs. Please note you must pre-register to attend a class. You may also register for any class at any time during the session and the price of the class will be adjusted accordingly.

This tour is recommended for experienced parents who have not previously delivered at Newton Wellesley Hospital. Please note that if you are registered for a Prepared or Natural Childbirth Class, you will tour the maternity unit with your class. This tour is not for children as it does include the labor area. A tour of the nursery area and postpartum unit is included in the sibling class and maybe a better choice for children. Registration is required to ensure small groups and that all questions can be answered. Each individual registration allows for two adults to attend the tour.
