Classes

Starting January 1, 2019, we will partner with Amma Parenting Center to offer pregnancy, parenting and newborn care classes to help you prepare for childbirth and healthy childhood development.

Amma teachers are current in the fields of obstetrics and perinatal education and strive to make classes fun and interactive.

Classes will be held at Amma designated locations throughout the Minneapolis/St. Paul area, not Buffalo Hospital. You can take a class at any location even if it's not in the city or site that you will have your baby. Online options are also available.

Exceptional care, exceptional outcomes

  • Primary cesarean section that’s significantly lower than the national average: 11.9% (through July 31, 2016)
  • Exclusive breastfeeding rate is 72%. We understand and appreciate that how a mother and family chooses to feed their baby is a very personal choice. We proudly and warmly support all mothers in their infant feeding choice.
