Re: Looking For Free or low Cost Child Birth Classes!

  • I am in the city, and have had no luck finding free ones.  I am going with my hospitals - and even they cost 155.  Check Abington Hospital, I know a friend who is doing her classes there.

  • Delco offers several free classes along with some low cost classes $25.  What types of clases though are you looking for?

  • When DH and I went, I think it was $125.00 and Pennsylvania Hospital.

     I then looked into my insurance and was able to get a $50.00 rebate. 

     So see if you insurance covers or reimburses.

  • erind0213- Did you know ahead of time about the rebate or was it something you just so happened to come across??/.. Iam going to call my insurance and see what they say. Thanks for the info.!!
  • @ShenekaSoloman- How long is the class that you will be going for? I know I checked at the birth center and they have them for 278 I believe, But In my opinion that is so much. I know some where has to have them for free. lol.

     I downloaded a brochure from ibx.com  called healthy lifestyles. We have personal choice via independence blue cross, and the form and info were in that booklet.

    It was a $50.00 reimbursement. 

    If you PM me your email I will email you the brochure.

  • the link I sent you does offer classes that assist you with what to expect during birth?  In addition, they not only assist you with what to expect but also suggest and teach birthing techniques.

  • Its a 3 class series for 155.  I thought that was pretty good as I was quoted at 250 for a Saturday seminar. Hope you found or find something.
