 RiverView Health is again sponsoring classes for expecting parents. The course includes four two-hour classes offered on four consecutive Tuesdays. The following class dates are scheduled: July 2, 9, 16 & 23

The classes will include information on labor support, coping strategies, understanding the labor and delivery process, newborn care, car seat safety, breastfeeding and infant CPR.

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. Knowledge gained through the classes will also 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. The sessions will be held from 7-9 PM in Meeting Room 1.

The classes are free for those delivering at RiverView and $25 for those not delivering in Crookston.

For more information or to pre-register, call the Obstetrics Department at ext. 281-9300 or register in the events calendar section on RiverView’s webpage at riverviewhealth.org.
