Childbirth Preparation Class - "Let's Get Ready to Have a Baby"
Learning what to expect during the end of your pregnancy and especially during labor and delivery will make the entire childbirth experience more rewarding. St Mary Mercy Livonia Hospital has a Childbirth Preparation Class designed to help our expectant families increase their knowledge of this experience. Taught by two of our very own labor and delivery nurses, new parents will learn about different stages of labor, anesthesia, medications and the importance of the support person. We will review some breathing and relaxation techniques as well. You will receive a booklet with a password to practice comfort and breathing techniques in the privacy of your own home. St. Mary Mercy Livonia Hospital families are welcome to register at any time for this class. Families not delivering at St. Mary Mercy Livonia Hospital are welcome to sign up 2 weeks before the class if there are still openings. A tour of the Birthing Center is included. Please e-mail us at ChildBirthEducation@stjoeshealth.org and let us know what class you are interested in attending. Robin Bell or Kim Narus will promptly notify you and place you in a class. You may also call 734-655-1023 and leave a message. We will return your call.
