    Our Great Expectations Pregnancy classes (currently offered only via Zoom) are small-group classes led by a health educator and go in-depth to cover a variety of subjects. Classes tend to fill up. We recommend registering for classes in the 2nd trimester (20-24 weeks) for early to mid 3rd trimester (30 weeks onward).

    In our “Women’s Health” webinar series, we focus on COVID-19 and its impact on how we deliver care across our specialties.

  • Zooming Through Pregnancy to Parenthood (view series) 

    Our “Zooming through Pregnancy to Parenthood” webinar series highlights our Certified Nurse Midwives. They, along with specialists they interview, will take you through a host of prenatal and postpartum educational topics.

  • Emmi through MyChart

    Once you register for prenatal care at UCSF, you will automatically receive a series of videos from Emmi through MyChart. Emmi is a free, interactive and generalized program that provides a very basic level of prenatal education.

    Emmi programs take about 15 to 30 minutes to view, depending on the topic and internet connection. It is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week for your convenience. We encourage you to watch these videos as a basic primer and use our other resources on this website to get a more in-depth understanding of how we provide care at UCSF.

We have created a number of support groups, mostly focused on the postpartum community. From joining one of our support groups to meeting with one of our lactation consultants, there are a number of resources we can help you with.
