Have you enrolled in your prenatal class yet? Birthing classes are offered by a registered nurse who works at Beaumont Hospital's Family Birth Center. Darlene teaches group classes through her home in Troy for a fee of $100 per couple.
She offers several options to accommodate your busy schedule. Her most popular class is a full Saturday class which runs from 10:00am-4:00pm and includes lunch. This popular class is limited to 6 couples in order to provide a personalized experience for all participants. She also provides personal classes for just one couple for a fee of $275, and she occasionally offers a 3-night series of weeknight classes on an individual basis as well.
