Prepared Childbirth Education Class January 11 at VMH

Veterans Memorial Hospital will begin the next Prepared Childbirth Education classes, formerly called Lamaze, Monday, January 11, 2016, and will continue for two consecutive Monday evenings beginning at 6 p.m. in the Large Conference Room.
The Prepared Childbirth Education classes at VMH are offered in three sessions that allow the expectant parents to choose which topics they wish to learn in depth. They may choose to attend one, two, or all three sessions. Session 1 covers labor, delivery, and the postpartum period following delivery; Session 2 includes relaxation, breathing, and pain management; and Session 3 covers infant care. Tours of the OB Department are available with each session as well.  
These Prepared Childbirth Education classes are free to any expectant parents delivering at VMH, and $10 per session for those delivering at another facility. These classes will be offered every three months.
Preregistration is necessary, as seats are limited. Contact Machelle Bulman, RN, at (563) 568-3411, or register on-line at
