Prepare for your new arrival with "Getting Ready for Birth."

Throughout the year, McLaren Macomb Family Birthing Center offers classes to prepare parents-to-be for their delivery and hospital stay.

Covering five aspects of the birthing process (labor and delivery, comfort strategies, medical procedures, breathing and relaxation, and the postpartum period), the sessions of "Getting Ready for Birth" will have new parents feeling confident and comfortable.

There is a $50 cost associated with the class.

"Getting Ready for Birth" also covers the information contained in the classes "Introduction to Breastfeeding," "Infant Safety Care" and "Family Birthing Center Tour."

Those classes are also available as standalone sessions. ("Introduction to Breastfeeding" has a fee of $30, while "Infant Safety Care" costs $15 per person.)

The Family Birthing Center Tour, allowing you and your family to familiarize yourself with the birthing unit, is free.

All classes are hosted at McLaren Macomb and registration is required. To register, visit
