Take a tour of Baptist Health Louisville's Labor & Delivery department, the Mother/Baby Unit and the newborn nursery. The tour offers general information about having your baby at Baptist Health Louisville, including registration, where to park, what to bring and visitation policies. It is free, but space is limited. Please attend only on the date for which you register. For your convenience, take this tour in conjunction with another maternity class.

If you liked the convenience of registering for classes online, remember you can complete your patient registration online, too. Baptist Health Louisville recommends pre-registering at the beginning of your eighth month of pregnancy. You will still have to check in on the Labor and Delivery unit on the second floor of the Baptist Health Medical Pavilion, 3900 Kresge Way, although your admission will be easier and take less time.
