Saturday Childbirth Class - July 2013

09:00 AM - 02:30 PM

Classes held in Conference Room 423 in Somerset Hospital. Fee for class is $35 per couple, lunch is included. Call 814-443-5735 to register.

Join us for a one day course to prepare you for pregnancy, childbirth and your journey into parenthood.  This course is taught the first Saturday of each month by Daria Parker, RN, IBCLC, CBE.  Lunch is included.

This course covers the "how" and "why" of pregnancy, an introduction to the labor and delivery experience, the topics of infant feeding, choosing a pediatrician and home preparation for your new baby.

Individual tours of the labor and delivery unit at Somerset Hospital are available upon request and will be given by Suellen Lichtenfels, RNC, LCCE.  Whether you are embarking on natural childbirth or choosing to use the comforts of medication during your labor, preparation in a childbirth education course will ensure that you are informed and prepared.  Ms. Parker's extensive education and experience in breast feeding will give those families who do breast feed the tools for success.

Classes are expected to fill quickly, so please sign up as soon as you know your schedule.  Families are asked to join us after 28 weeks gestation.  Pregnant women and birth support persons are encouraged to come together; however, singles are welcome.  Please, no children.
