EPO, a nonprofit organization, uses a team of registered nurse educators to teach its classes. Our Mission is to improve the health and well-being of our community's children by empowering parents with knowledge, skills and resources needed for a safe and nurturing environment. EPO provides information and training for:

  • Pregnancy, childbirth, caring for and parenting infants.
  • Coping skills to reduce discomfort.
  • Local resources on pregnancy through infancy.

EPO works with area health care providers and hospitals, and provides classes in several locations in the Lansing area. EPO is an affiliate of Sparrow Health System and the Capital Area United Way.

All classes are taught by registered nurses and the curriculum and class content is continuously and consistently updated according to evidence based information and best practices.
