Education and Support - Families thrive on our resources.

Huron Valley-Sinai Hospital is committed to the health and well-being of mother and baby – every step of the way. That’s why we’ve been offering ongoing parenting and birth awareness classes for more than ten years, along with a variety of other educational and support services.

A particularly important resource for first-time mothers, our courses are offered through the Huron Valley-Sinai Hospital obstetrics department and are taught by trained health professionals, usually registered nurses with a background of practical experience.
