UPMC is committed to the health and safety of our patients, visitors, and staff. To decrease potential spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), we are discontinuing all in-person prenatal classes, tours, and some other community education classes on a monthly basis. Refunds will be processed for those classes cancelled in the current month, as soon as possible. The credit card companies can take several weeks.

Thank you for your understanding as we work to lessen the impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19) in our community and especially for our expectant mothers, new mothers, and infants.  



Are you considering inviting your children to be present at the birth of this baby? If so, please discuss this option with your physician or midwife. If your family decides this is your choice, register for the Children at Birth Program. This self- learning module is designed for families with children ages 12 and younger. The program includes photos of the Womancare Birth Center, book and video resources, and suggestions of how the family can support each other during birth. When the children are present during labor and birth, one adult other than the mother's main support must be present to be responsible for each child.

Completion of this program is required for all families who wish to have a younger sibling present in the Birth Center before, after, during labor, and/or birth of a new baby. There is no fee for this program but registration is required.  


The learning module will be emailed to you within 72 hours of registration.
