All in-person prenatal classes, hospital tours and outpatient support groups at Sharp Chula Vista Medical Center, Sharp Mary Birch Hospital for Women & Newborns, and Sharp Grossmont Hospital are canceled until further notice. We are closely monitoring the COVID-19 outbreak with health officials at all levels to determine when in-person events can resume.
In the meantime, we are offering this class via a live webinar. Please register for an upcoming date below.
