Miami Tours and Prenatal Classes
Tours and prenatal classes are the best way to truly understand the special environment of Jackson Health System’s maternity units.
Some of our in-person classes and tours are not taking place at this time. If you have enrolled for one of our classes or tours, a nurse from the facility you enrolled in will call you directly to provide further instructions. If an in-person class or tour is not possible, the nurse will facilitate an over-the-phone class/consult and answer any questions you may have.
For more information, you may contact the maternity units directly.
