Maternity Classes and Baby App

A variety of programs are available to help prepare you for birth. Prenatal classes are offered on one Saturday each month, and at our Brownsville Paredes Line and Harlingen Healthy Women’s Centers.

We also offer the RGV Baby App, tailored just for RGV moms-to-be! You can receive weekly notifications on how your baby is developing; keep track of doctor’s appointments; log your daily symptoms, weight and waist measurements to discuss with your doctor during your follow-up visits and more! You can even track your baby’s kicks and time your contractions when the time comes.
