Registration is per couple. You only need to register once. Complimentary maternity tours are designed to help expecting couples plan for birth of their baby at Sibley Memorial Hospital. On this tour you will have the opportunity to see a labor, delivery and recovery (LDR) room as well as a postpartum room (availability permitting) and acquire information and handouts to simplify your stay in the hospital.
Online registration is required to keep tour groups to a manageable size; we cannot accept walk-ins or add-ons when classes are full.
Each tour is for up to two adults. The tour is reserved for expectant mothers and their partners only. The number of attendees is limited per tour, and we want to ensure that each mother has an opportunity to see the laboring suites. Please do not register any other family members.
Children of any age are not allowed on the maternity tour; however, we do have complimentary sibling tours for children ages two to six.
If you are attending the Childbirth Preparation class, a maternity tour is already included in this course, so you don’t need to register for a separate tour.
The Childbirth Education Department reserves the right to reschedule or cancel a class or a tour due to insufficient enrollment, overbooking, inclement weather or other extenuating circumstances.
Please make sure that you provide an accurate email address and telephone number when registering so we can notify you in a timely manner if class is rescheduled or cancelled.
