Getting ready for your first baby? Or, do you just need some refresher training as you welcome the newest addition to your family? The staff at the Saint Joseph Mercy Family Birth Center is ready to help you develop the skills and confidence you need to prepare before, during and after your baby’s arrival.
Pregnancy, Childbirth and Infant Care Classes
There’s plenty to learn even before you become pregnant. If you’re thinking about having a baby, consider setting up a preconceptual visit with an obstetrical provider. For a referral to a St. Joseph Mercy obstetrician/gynecologist, certified nurse midwife or family practitioner who provides obstetrical care, please call Saint Joseph Mercy HealthLine at 734-712-5400 or 800-231-2211. You can also register for a class or birth center tour or request a free guide to preconception care.
Videos on Request
During your hospital stay, you can also learn a variety of useful information from health education videos right in your room! Ask your nurse or care assistant for a list of videos available for viewing.
If you are having difficulty or concerns with breastfeeding while in the hospital, your nurse or certified lactation consultant can assist you by calling 734-712-6357.
