Great Expectations Classes


CHRISTUS Santa Rosa offers a variety of prenatal and postpartum classes. The Great Expectations classes offer parents information and skills for their birth experience and the first weeks of parenthood. Mothers and fathers report that the courses help them prepare for labor and delivery, get breastfeeding off to a good start, and better care for their new family. Parents also say that after meeting people in their classes they have established a support system of new friends.

The Great Expectations classes are taught by certified instructors. Dates, times, and fees are posted online and in brochures available at the hospital and in physician's offices. Consider gifting parents-to-be in your life with prenatal and postpartum classes.
