San Juan Regional Medical Center Announces Childbirth Preparation Series Classes
Will the new year bring a new addition to your family? If so, San Juan Regional Medical Center’s Childbirth Center wants to help you prepare for the birth of your baby. While welcoming a new bundle of joy into the world is exciting, there are a lot of decisions to make and questions to ask. At San Juan Regional Medical Center, we are committed to providing the support and education expecting parents need to make sure their baby gets the best start in life.
Our Childbirth Preparation Series classes invites moms and their families to learn the basics of a healthy pregnancy and birth, what to expect once baby is born, newborn basics and beyond. Topics covered include comfort measures, breathing, relaxation, the stages and phases of labor, support person skills, medical interventions in labor, the first few weeks at home and postpartum care. Emphasis is placed on having a healthy pregnancy, understanding the physical and emotional challenges of labor and delivery and getting to know other pregnant women and families.
The classes will be held virtually via Zoom and are offered free of charge as a benefit to expecting parents in our community compliments of San Juan Regional Medical Center, your community owned and operated hospital.
The next series will be compacted into two classes instead of four, and will be held Thursday, January 20 and Thursday, January 27 from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. It’s a great opportunity for new parents to receive all of the information in a short span of time.
