How to Register & Pay

Childbirth and Parenthood Classes

We recommend that you take childbirth classes during the seventh or eighth month of your pregnancy (any series should end about this time as well). Classes are in high demand and fill up quickly, so please make sure to register ahead of time and as soon as classes are posted to the Calendar of Events.

Please be advised that there are no drop-ins. Due to the seat limitations for each class, we will only accept registered participants. Online registration through our website is required for all classes and tours.

Insurance and Reimbursement 

Sibley's Childbirth Education Department does not submit to insurance companies for coverage of or reimbursement for our Childbirth Education classes. As there are no medical, procedure, diagnosis, CPT, or ICD codes associated with our classes, we cannot directly bill insurance.

The Childbirth Education Department is able to provide the following information:

• Your confirmation of class payment (which you receive via email upon registration)

• Our Childbirth Education tax ID #530-19-6602

• The signature of the class instructor (MUST be requested at least 3 days prior to the class date), and/or

• Confirmation of your attendance in a class. To request reimbursement, you are responsible for submitting the appropriate documents directly to your insurance company following the conclusion of the class. We strongly recommend that you call your insurance company well in advance of your class date and inquire about what information, instructor qualifications and/or documentation is necessary, as each insurance company maintains different requirements. Waiting until after the class is complete may delay our ability to provide the information and documentation you need.

To view classes offered by the childbirth education department:
There are a limited number of registrants for each class. Once that limit is reached, the class will be closed to registrations and "Registration Button" will no longer be visible.

Questions regarding Childbirth classes or registration should be directed to: childbirth@jhmi.edu or call 202-537-4076.
