What You'll Learn
Are you an expectant mom planning a cesarean birth for medical reasons? In a supportive environment, the educators will address any anxieties you may have surrounding a cesarean delivery.
If you're a mom-to-be considering an elective cesarean birth, you're highly encouraged to attend the free Cesarean Option class before you register for this class.
During this class, we'll discuss:
- The procedure and what to expect with a cesarean delivery
- How to help create the best possible outcomes for your cesarean birth
- Tips for recovery
When to Take the Class
We recommend that you register for classes in your 5th month of pregnancy and attend them during your 7th or 8th month.
All classes are held on the Cedars-Sinai main campus (view the map for details). You’ll receive the exact location in a confirmation email after you complete the registration.
Parking is available at a discounted rate of $5 in lots P1, P2, P3, P4, P5 or P6. Remember to bring your parking ticket to class for validation! We don’t validate for parking in the Medical Office Towers. If you need parking assistance, please call the Hospitality Desk at 310-423-4444.
Full refunds are only available if you cancel for medical reasons or if your baby is delivered before the start of your scheduled class. If you cancel 2 weeks (14 days) before the class, you’ll receive a refund minus the $25 nonrefundable processing fee. Cancellations made less than 2 weeks before the class are refunded at 50% of the amount paid. Please allow 7 to 10 business days for all refund processing. No refunds are issued for missed classes.
