SMH Offers Preparing for Birth - January 2012

The Family Birthplace at Stephens Memorial Hospital will be holding their next Preparing for Birth class Thursday evenings, January 5th through January 26th from 6:30pm - 8:45pm in Harper Conference Room located in the Ripley Medical Office Building (193 Main Street, Norway).  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 starting in October.  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.   

The fee for this class is $35.  Pre-registration with payment is preferred.  To register for class or for information on where to send your payment please call 743-1562 x6951.  For further information & future class offerings please visit our website at click on women and then on preparing for birth.
