Childbirth Education

At the Bozeman Birth Center, We passionately believe education changes birth outcomes and we desire every couple be educated in the birth process prior to labor whether they are planning a hospital birth, home birth or birth center birth. Childbirth education gives you options and helps you to make a plan for what your birth will look like. We believe in the quote by Diane Korte, “If I don’t know my options, I don’t have any”, and absolutely believe that childbirth is most certainly a time in your life where you should know your options.

We offer a 3 week class each month, occurring on the first 3 Monday or Thursday nights (depending on the month) from 6-8pm at the Birth Center. Each session is $25 making the class total $75.
