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.

Note: Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, we have postponed our Childbirth and Parenting classes until May 1. You may wish to view some of our online educational videos. You may also find helpful educational videos from other online sources, including BabyCenter.

New: We are pleased to now offer HypnoBirthing® classes, which emphasizes natural childbirth and techniques to help ease pain during labor. Learn more about this unique approach to labor. You can also view upcoming HypnoBirthing® class offerings.
