RiverView Health is again sponsoring classes for expecting parents. The course includes four two-hour classes offered on four consecutive Tuesdays. The sessions will be held Jan. 3, 10, 17 & 24. The first and second classes will focus on the stages of labor, breathing and relaxation techniques during labor and delivery, coaching instructions and a tour of hospital rooms. The later classes will focus on baby care, breastfeeding and CPR. All area physicians encourage their obstetrics patients to attend all four classes, with a support coach, to better understand what to expect during pregnancy and childbirth; and to help ease the fear of the unknown and make for a more enjoyable childbirth experience.
The course instructors for all sessions will be labor/delivery nurses at RiverView Health. The sessions each start at 7:00 PM and last until 9:00 PM and will be held in Meeting Room 4 of RiverView. Twenty-five dollars is the fee if you are not delivering at RiverView.
