Join us in SLC for a Birthsmarter Childbirth Education Course. 

Classes are offered in 2 formats at Wasatch Midwifery in Holladay, UT:

The Weekly Series allows for community building and has ample time for hands on practice in Comfort + Coping and Push Prep. Class 1, on Labor + Delivery is lecture based.

    If these dates don't work for you or if a class is sold out, head here to explore our classes that meet live-online or head here to register for our On-Demand course that's available anytime, anywhere.

    The Birthsmarter Childbirth Education Course DOES NOT include Newborn Care, the Lactation Class, or Postpartum Planning. These are available as a series, or Á La Carte.   

    When should I take Childbirth Education?
    Ideally, you would take childbirth education classes between week 28 and week 34. Some clients start as early as week 24 and others find us around week 38. It’s never too early and it’s never too late! 

      Wait, why are Labor + Delivery 101, Push Prep and Comfort + Coping sold separately elsewhere on the site? We also offer these three classes Á La Carte for folks who are only interested in one or two subjects. For example, we've had clients take a traditional birth class elsewhere and feel disappointed that there was no hands-on practice or acknowledgement of the pelvic floor and want to supplement their education with Comfort + Coping or Push Prep. Others may be looking for a refresher course for baby #2 or #3.

      Rest assured, everything you can select here 👆 covers all three subjects! And 99% of the time, we recommend first time parents take this option instead of choosing individual subject matters. The sections feed into each other and are all equally important. 

      If finances are a concern:
      Please reach out about Alternative Pricing.
      We work to ensure that no one will be turned away due to lack of funds.

      The registration price includes attendance for two people.
