Due to COVID-19 ALL Specialty Classes will be held via Zoom. A link will be sent the day before your scheduled class time. In addition, ALL hospital tours are cancelled through Mid-August 2020.
In addition to the links below, we highly recommend reading The Joy of Pregnancy by Tori Kropp, R.N., a perinatal nurse who has delivered thousands of babies at California Pacific Medical Center and is one of our perinatal educators.
Pregnancy & Parenting Classes
As an added convenience for our patients, we now provide pregnancy and childbirth classes in our own state-of-the-art facility. Each program is designed with substantial input from Golden Gate OB/GYN physicians and reflects the standards and philosophy of our medical practice.
- Baby Care Basics $110: Learn about normal newborn activities and how to feed, bathe, change and protect your baby.
- Breastfeeding 101 $110: Learn the facts about breastfeeding, as well as how to position your infant, feeding routines and how to resolve common breastfeeding issues.
- Childbirth Preparation $225: Learn how to prepare for labor and birth by understanding the stages of labor, relaxation techniques, pain medication options and guidance for partner support. **** This is a one-day class held on Saturday, or a one-evening class held on week night. Week night classes limit the number of couples enrolled for a more personalized experience.****

To help patients and their partners feel more familiar with the hospital during their delivery and stay, Golden Gate OBGYN has created a Hospital Tour Booklet as a companion to the virtual tours that CPMC is offering.
