Childbirth and Parenting Classes at UPMC Hanover

Classes Update

At UPMC in Central Pa., we are committed to the health and safety of our patients, visitors, and staff. In light of precautions being taken to prevent any potential spread of COVID-19, and to limit the amount of traffic throughout the hospital, we have taken the necessary steps to offer classes virtually.  As we move forward, some of our classes and support groups will be offered in a hybrid or in-person mode. Please note in-person classes will require masking and 6-foot social distancing.  We will supply hand sanitizer and follow sanitation guidelines for your safety.

Please see the menu of online classes below developed to meet the needs of our patients and their families. Many of our classes may be covered or reimbursed by insurance. Please contact your insurance provider for details.

Thank you for your understanding as we work to minimize the impact of COVID-19 on our community and especially our expectant mothers, new mothers, and infants.

If you have any questions please contact our Parent Child Education Coordinator by phone at 717-231-8916 or by email at

Online Tobacco Cessation Support Groups

UPMC now offers virtual support groups on Facebook! This convenient option offers members the latest information about tobacco use addiction, complications of use, benefits of quitting, treatment options, and access to other supportive resources. Moderated by our team of tobacco treatment specialists, our support groups are a place where current and former tobacco users come together to share ideas, discuss topics, and tell their stories. Interactive features include videos, posts, activities, and active discussions about the quitting process and staying quit. Join us and connect with other members who understand what you are going through. Signing up is quick, easy and free – and you can join us whenever you’re ready!
