The Birth Place

Women's Education


The Birth Place at Albany Med believes that education is an important part of any family's birthing experience. In addition to reducing anxiety and uncertainty, gaining information helps you and your family make well-informed choices about pregnancy, birth, infant care and parenting.

To help your family gain the knowledge you need, we regularly provide a wide range of classes. A few examples include:

  • Tours of The Birth Place
  • Childbirth Education
  • Cesarean Birth
  • Breastfeeding
  • Infant Care
  • Becoming a Sibling
  • Grandparenting

Taught by an experienced, receptive and supportive staff, our classes are open to your entire family. Most are scheduled for evenings and weekends. If you have any questions about our classes or tours, feel free to call us at (518) 262-8447 between 8am - 4pm. We'll be happy to provide the assistance you need.
