Severe Weather Advisories

In the case of severe weather (or the prediction of incoming severe weather), your childbirth classes may be cancelled. If you have a class scheduled at one of our facilities and the weather is questionable, please call the Childbirth Education Office for more information. The voice mail recording will be updated accordingly if there are class cancellations. The Childbirth Education Office will try to make weather-related decisions by 4pm. If the weather becomes an issue after 4pm, it may be difficult to alert everyone in time. If your class is not cancelled and you feel the weather is too threatening, please stay home and call the office the next business day to reschedule your class. If a class is cancelled, a make-up class will be scheduled.
