Getting ready for baby

If you are having a child, it is easy to feel overwhelmed by questions and concerns about your upcoming birthing experience. Many new parents find childbirth classes help calm their worries about what to expect.

Henry Ford Health System offers a variety of childbirth education classes for expectant parents and their families. These classes provide you with an opportunity to make informed decisions about your baby’s birth. Learn about birth preparation, breastfeeding, infant care, and more.
