Saturday Express Birth Detroit

Parents, join us for our childbirth class, to prepare physically and emotionally for pregnancy, birth and your new role as parents.




*Our last class this year (Dec 10th) will be virtual * in-person teaching starts February 2023*

Our classes are taught by our own Labor and Delivery Nurses. Help make your birth experience the best possible with comfort and relaxation techniques, birth and intervention information, bonding and breastfeeding. This childbirth class gives the opportunity to interact with other couples, and reinforce the information. You will receive complete information about your hospital stay, and all that Ascension St. John has to offer.

In-Person Classes will resume February 2023:

Classes will be held at St. John Hospital (22101 Moross Road, Detroit, MI 48236) in the basement, classroom D&E. A mask is required during your time in the hospital. Lunch is not provided, but our cafeteria and coffee shop will be available to you. Please park in the MAIN parking lot at the back of the hospital. A tour of the unit will be included with this class.
