Childbirth 101 (Lamaze)
Whether you’re a new mom or an experienced mom it is important to have the confidence you need to prepare both physically and emotionally for baby, birth and post partum. When attending a child birth class you’ll be able to connect with other parents-to-be. You have the opportunity to have a registered nurse answer your questions and provide current, researched, evidence based information regarding:

Changes that occur during late pregnancy and the stages of labor.

The important role that pain plays during labor and a variety of both non-medical and medical strategies for managing it.

How your partner can be an important source of support through your labor and birth

Classes are instructed by a Registered Nurse and are overseen by a Lamaze Certified Child Birth Educator (LCCE).

Lamaze books are available to purchase for $5.00.

Baby Basics
This class is designed to answer questions and ease concerns regarding the "how to's" of caring for a newborn. The class covers nurturing, feeding, bathing, cord care, sleeping habits, and the parent's changing world. This class is held one time per month and classes are instructed by a Registered Nurse.

Car Seat Education
This class is designed to help parents / grandparents keep their "Precious Cargo" safe by understanding the importance of proper car seat use.  This class is held once per month and is instructed by a Child Passenger Safety Instructor.   Please use this opportunity to ensure you have your car seat ready to go before you need it.

Please bring the instruction manuals for your car seat and your vehicle owners manual.  If you have not purchased a car seat please still bring the vehicle owners manual
