Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: When are your classes?
A: Generally, Lamaze classes are held on Mondays in our Swissvale office from 5:00pm – 7:15pm, and on Thursdays in our Northside office from 5:45pm – 8:00pm. There are sometimes off days during the month, so make sure to check the calendar!
Q: What do your Lamaze classes cost?
A: All of MAYA’s classes are free for pregnant women and their partners, throughout the pregnancy and until baby’s first birthday.
Q: Can I bring a support person instead of a partner?
A: Sure! We have had new moms bring a family member, friend, or their doula. The only difference is that a support person will not earn MAYA Points for attending class. MAYA Points are only given to expectant women and their partners.
Q: Would it be weird to come to Lamaze by myself?
A: Not at all! Most classes are a 50/50 mix of women and couples.
Q: Do I have to take all the classes in order?
A: Classes don’t have to be taken in any particular order, but they do build on previous knowledge as the series goes on.
Q: Is it worth it to come if I don’t think I can complete the series?
A: Absolutely! Some clients attend all of the classes, some only come for one or two. Some moms finish the series and retake classes.
Q: When should I start taking Lamaze classes?
A: Our instructors recommend that you wait until 32 weeks to start Lamaze.
Q: I’m due really soon… can I take classes at both locations so I can finish before I have the baby?
A: Yep! You’re free to attend classes at either or both of our offices.
