Welcome to Expectant Parents Organization
Expectant Parents Organization (EPO), a 501C3, community-based agency, has been serving Mid-Michigan parents for over 70 years. Our team of educators have a deep appreciation for the importance of partnering with families during the special time of pregnancy, childbirth and parenting a newborn. This is an exciting time, full of many changes for parents to be. EPO is here to help with preparing you for childbirth and parenting, to guide you on this life changing journey. We offer a variety of engaging classes supporting best practices for the health of your family; providing participants with skills, knowledge and support needed to make informed decisions and choices, promoting a positive birth and parenting experience. We know that the more you know, the better prepared you will feel and the more confidence you will have.
Time to start learning valuable information about pregnancy, childbirth and infancy.
EPO classes are open for anyone, regardless of where you plan to deliver. Classes are designed for expecting parents and support people. Our classes are taught by an excellent team of passionate educators. Ideal time to take classes is during an expectant parent’s third trimester of pregnancy. Our classes will help prepare you for welcoming your new baby into your family.
Not sure where to begin? Our recommendation for soon to be parents is to choose the Childbirth Comprehensive course that allows you to pick a Labor and Delivery class along with Best Newborn Care class.
