How to Register
To register for a class, locate and click the class date you're interested in. At the end of each class description you will find a downloadable registration form that you can complete and mail in with payment to the address below:
Avista Adventist Hospital
Family Life Education
100 Health Park Drive
Louisville, CO 80027
If you don't see a class date listed that you may have seen in a printed birth class flyer, that class is full.
Class size limits typically refer to couples, except in the case of Infant/Child CPR and Sibling Preparation classes.
We recommend you complete your classes two to three weeks prior to your due date. All classes will be taught at Avista Adventist Hospital, unless otherwise indicated. Classes are subject to change.
A Word about Refunds
Due to the increased demand for our classes, especially the childbirth preparation series, there can be no refunds granted for any cancellation requests received later than two weeks prior to the starting date of the class series.
We are also unable to grant refunds for partially attended classes. A full refund, minus a $6 per class handling fee, will be issued for cancellation requests received two or more weeks before the start of a class or series. This is to ensure a fair and equal opportunity for everyone wishing to participate in our education program.
