Allina Health partners with Amma Parenting Center, Blooma and Everyday Miracles to offer pregnancy, parenting and newborn care classes to help you prepare for childbirth and healthy childhood development.
As you get ready for labor and delivery, we urge you and your partner or support person to attend childbirth preparation classes. You will learn breathing and relaxation techniques that can enhance the progress of labor and reduce your pain and fears.

Classes include Preparing for Childbirth, Breastfeeding, The New Mama Class, Infant CPR and First Aid, Big Brothers and Sister and more.

Through movement, education and a community of support, for the past 13 years Blooma has been nourishing the mind, body and spirit of parents-to-be and families. Blooma’s evidence-based childbirth education classes are for all families, whether they’re planning a vaginal or caesarean birth, medicated or unmedicated, at a hospital or at home – every birth will be celebrated and supported. Blooma may be best known for Prenatal Yoga, but they have more than 40 virtual yoga and barre classes each week that welcome all experience levels. The Blooma Doulas provide educational, emotional and physical support through pregnancy, birth and postpartum. And to ensure Blooma is meeting the holistic needs of clients, they offer wellness services out of their South Minneapolis studio as well as free and ongoing support groups for expectant and new parents.
