Prenatal education

We are updating our online prenatal system in order to provide a better experience for our online prenatal clients. To avoid issues during the transitional period, clients who have registered and were provided with a program registration code must use their code prior to May 20.

Prenatal education helps you prepare for the arrival of your little one and is a great place to meet other expectant parents in your area. Public Health offers prenatal in class or online education. Between the 5th and 7th month of pregnancy is the ideal time to take prenatal classes.

Prenatal classes are offered in Woodstock on a Saturday from 9:00 am to 4:00pm. Cost of class is $60. This fee can be waived if it causes financial hardship.

A free Breastfeeding class is available in Woodstock once a month.

Online Prenatal can be completed on you own time free of charge.
