First Steps Classes

We want you to be fully prepared when your new baby arrives! That's why we offer First Steps, a childbirth and parenting class program that provides information, life skills and baby items.
All interested participants must have completed an initial consultation at Mosaic PHC before registering for our Childbirth and Parenting Classes. We recommend taking the classes during your 6th month of pregnancy. To register contact us at 618.451.2002 or .
Those who complete all 4 classes will receive new and free baby items such as diapers, wipes, onesies, bottles, etc. - all the essentials to welcome your new baby home!
Four 2-hour classes are instructed by registered nurses and trained volunteers. The classes include teaching, instruction, visual aids and demonstrations.
