Registration Details

Registration is closed.

This class will be held in the Wilcox Auditorium.

Registration is required and space is limited.

The ideal time to complete this class is between 28-36 weeks of pregnancy. Please choose a class that starts after your 28th week of pregnancy and that finishes at least 30 days prior to your expected due date.

Fees & Payment

The charge for this program is $45 per couple. Payment is due at the time of registration, using a debit or credit card. We accept MasterCard, Visa or Discover. Instructors do not take money at the class.

This class is also covered by Medicaid. You will have the option to enter your 10-digit Medicaid number instead of paying by credit card, and we will bill Medicaid on your behalf. You must attend at least 50 percent of the class time and cover at least 50 percent of the class material to be eligible for Medicaid reimbursement. If you register and then fail to complete the attendance requirements, you will be responsible for the $45 fee and will receive a bill from the hospital. If you have enrolled in Medicaid but do not yet know your Medicaid number, we recommend that you wait to receive your number before registering for this class.

Scholarships are available for families with a financial need who are not covered by Medicaid. To ask about scholarship eligibility, please call MidMichigan Health Line toll free at (800) 999-3199.


This class series prepares you and your labor partner for active participation in the birth experience. Classes cover relaxation, breathing awareness, natural childbirth, epidurals and other anesthesia procedures, hospital practices, and the most up-to-date techniques for labor and delivery, including the unexpected and cesarean birth. A hospital tour is part of the class.

Please bring a pillow, bottled water and a light snack to class.

This class is eligible for the Baby Bundle discount.
