Pregnancy Resources

The MetroHealth team delivers about 3,000 babies per year and provides individualized care for each mother and baby to start life with the healthiest possible outcome.

We have the expertise and the resources to care for everyone.

Additionally, we have a robust series of childbirth education classes, breastfeeding support, and classes for family members—free for MetroHealth patients—that can help you prepare for your baby and give them the healthiest possible start to life.

Boot Camp for New Dads

Geared to first-time fathers, this class is taught by veteran dads. You will learn how to make it through the first months of parenting and come out a competent, on-the-job father.

This is one of our most popular classes for men of all ages.
