  • Pregnancy can create anxiety for some new parents, but it's also one of the most rewarding times of your life. Through intimate, hands-on workshops, our certified Birth Center staff shares with you all the tools, tips and techniques you need to care for your little one and enjoy this very special time.

    All of our classes are taught by certified clinicians and are open to the entire community.

    Tour for Two (or more!)
    Moms and Dads (and baby, too!) are invited to come tour our beautiful Birth Center. During the tour, become acquainted with our hospital and Birth Center, which is well-known for its luxurious and spacious mother/baby suites, as well as its caring staff members. We will show you a short video, answer any questions you may have and make sure you know exactly where to go on the big day and where you'll be staying afterward.

    Tours are free of charge, refreshments included, and take place at Baton Rouge General's Bluebonnet campus in Conference Room 1 from 6:00 - 7:00 p.m.
