Free Expectant Parent Classes

Soldiers + Sailors Memorial Hospital hosts to equip new parents

 

by Stacey Dondey - November 13, 2017

A child is a blessing from above but they definitely do not come with instructions. If you are like most expectant parents, you have a long list of questions and concerns regarding pregnancy, childbirth, newborn care and nursing. While the internet is a good place to begin the search for answers, nothing compares to getting the facts straight from an experienced OB nurse.

Luckily, registered nurse Dawn Burke of Soldiers & Sailors Memorial Hospital is a lactation specialist and certified childbirth educator. She teaches 6 free and unique classes on these subjects every 2nd and 4th Tuesday of the month at 7pm in the Cedar Conference Room.

Many new parents-to-be are comforted to know that a wide variety of topics will be covered during these 6 classes:
-Class #1: Pregnancy
-Class #2: Labor & Delivery
-Class #3: Comfort Measures
-Class #4: Breast Feeding & C-section
-Class #5: Newborn Care
-Class #6: Parenting (with special guest, pediatrician Dr. Clark)

Since these are taught year round, anyone can attend regardless of their due date. Many moms feel more prepared, relaxed and confident after taking the time to learn more about their pregnancy, the birth process and the facilities available.

Parenting is the most rewarding job we will ever know. As you or someone you know embarks on this exciting journey, remember that there are friendly faces around the corner available to help.

To attend the next class on Comfort Measures (11/14/17) or Breastfeeding (11/28/17) at 7pm please come to:

Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Hospital
Cedar Conference Room
32 Central Avenue
Wellsboro, PA 16901

For more information on these classes, please call 570-723-0375 or visit this link.
