SMH Offers Preparing for Birth Classes

The Family Birthplace at Stephens Memorial Hospital will be holding their next Preparing for Birth class Thursday evenings, August 4th, 11th, 18th and 25th from 6:30pm - 8:45pm in Harper Conference Room located in the Ripley Medical Building.  Hilary Ware, RN, will be facilitating the course.

Pregnancy is an exciting time.  Join a group of expectant parents having fun learning about the labor and delivery experience at Stephens Memorial Hospital's Preparing For Birth class in August.  They will explore how to relax and allow themselves to flow with their labor through breathing and relaxation techniques.   Your coach will learn how they can assist through the process of labor and share in the joy of your baby's birth.  Information on making a birth plan, comfort measures, stages of labor, and cesarean delivery are all explored.  A question and answer session is always part of the class.   

Pre-registration with payment or Mainecare information is required.  The fee for this class is $50 if delivering at SMH or $60 if delivering elsewhere and is covered by insurance and Mainecare. 

To register for class or for information on where to send your payment please call 743-1562 x6951.  Online registration may be done via the Stephens Memorial Hospital website.  For further information & future class offerings please visit our website at click on women and then on preparing for birth.
