Black Families Childbirth Series

Join us for childbirth education for Black families

Are you pregnant? Are you getting prenatal care with Hennepin Healthcare?

We provide childbirth education where you:

  • Can be heard
  • Are not judged
  • Can be yourself
  • Feel safe
  • Ask questions
  • Make informed decisions

Why group childbirth education?

  • Build community and a support system
  • Share ideas, hear and learn from each other
  • Ask your questions and receive honest answers
