What is the difference between the class formats?
In-person classes are offered at both our Southfield and Novi campuses and are taught by a Registered Nurse (RN). Participants will receive a book, corresponding web app and will have the chance to practice hands-on learning.
Virtual classes are are live, online classes. These fun interactive classes allow you to get your questions answered in real time from the comfort of your home. (Closed for 2023)
Blended classes are virtual classes with some assigned material to complete on your own-- helping you combat "virtual fatigue" while still having a way to get your questions answered in real time.
E-Classes are self-paced and can be completed at anytime to accommodate a busy schedule. Once purchased, the e-Class is available for 270 days from any computer or mobile device with internet connection. These classes are available in multiple languages: English, Spanish, Portuguese, French, German, Arabic, Japanese, and Chinese
When should I take classes?
Usually just after the start of your third trimester, around 28-32 weeks. However, we recommend signing up for classes in advance, any time during your pregnancy, to ensure a spot. Please email our team at [email protected] for assistance if a spot or class is not available for your needs.
Can I use my insurance to cover the cost of classes?
Some instructed classes may be eligible for reimbursement! Our department does not bill insurance directly, however, we are happy to provide a reimbursement form on request. To find out if this is a covered service for you, we recommend calling the number on the back of your insurance card and giving them the codes below. Any amount not covered by insurance will be the registrants responsibility.
Does my class come with a tour of the hospital?
Yes! All of our birthing classes come with a tour! Please do not register separately for a tour if you are registering for a birthing class. Some of our infant care and breastfeeding classes may come with a tour as well. Feel free to reach out at anytime for questions!
