Welcome to CEA!
The Childbirth Education Association (CEA) is a non-profit, volunteer organization founded to make pregnancy, birth, delivery, and parenthood a more informed and satisfying experience, and is dedicated to promoting the concepts of Family-Centered Maternity Care. CEA has been serving the Centre Region for over 40 years. The people responsible are largely volunteers.
We offer a variety of classes to make pregnancy, birth, delivery, and parenthood a more informed and satisfying experience. Our classes are taught by certified instructors, and we keep class sizes small to ensure that each participant receives the attention they need. Most of our classes are held at the State College Friends School. (Sibling Preparation is held at Mount Nittany Medical Center.)
The following classes are offered by CEA:
Check with your insurance carrier. Many health plans pay all or partial fees for Early Pregnancy Class and/or Prepared Childbirth Class.
