  • Childbirth preparation
  • Infant care
  • Breastfeeding
  • Sibling preparation
  • And more!

Classes, groups and dates vary by hospital location to give you more options.

St. Joseph Hospital West (Lake Saint Louis)

Not all classes require registration, but most do. When you find a class that's right for you or want more information, call the SSM Health and Wellness Line at 866-SSM-DOCS (866-776-3627) to register if it's required.


Choosing a birthplace for you and your baby is an important decision. Guided tours of the Family Birthplaces help you get ready for the big day: where to go, what to do and how we care for you.

But we know you're busy and can't always make it in person, at least not at first. So you can also check out our virtual tours.
