Maternity Class FAQs

How much do classes cost?

If you plan to deliver your baby at McLeod Regional Medical Center, all classes except Family & Friends CPR are free of charge. Family and Friends CPR costs $20 per person. For those who plan to deliver elsewhere, classes range from $35 for Childbirth Preparation to $8 for the Big Sibling Class.

How do I register for classes?

Call McLeod Reservations & Scheduling at (843) 777-2005. If you have questions about any of the classes, please call (843) 777-2890. Your place for Family & Friends CPR will not be reserved until your class fee is paid to the McLeod Resource Center.

Should my partner come to the classes?

We encourage both parents to attend all the classes whenever possible. All classes address the concerns and responsibilities of both parents.

When should I begin taking classes?

We recommend that you begin taking classes early in your third trimester. If you are carrying multiples, or if your doctor has indicated you may be at risk for early labor or bedrest, you may want to take the classes earlier rather than later. Here is a general guideline:
