In-Person Childbirth Classes Increase Capacity

Classes Now Accommodate 20, Moving to Hatch Meeting Rooms

Alton Memorial Hospital's Women's & Infants unit restarted in-person classes in late March, and can now accommodate up to 20 people per class, including the instructor. BJC has revised its policy about in-person gatherings to allow up to 20 people for indoor events. As a result, the classes are also moving to the Hatch meeting rooms in the hospital's Hatch Wing. To register, call 800-392-0936 or GO HERE.


Class members must wear a mask at all times and enter the hospital through the Duncan Wing entrance, then proceed to the Hatch meeting rooms..

A full schedule of all classes is below.
