Prepared Childbirth Education Class to be held at VMH

Veterans Memorial Hospital will begin the next Prepared Childbirth Education classes (formerly called Lamaze) Monday, January 7, and they will continue for two more consecutive Monday evenings beginning at 6 p.m. in the hospital’s Large Conference Room.

The Prepared Childbirth Education classes at Veterans Memorial Hospital are offered in three sessions that allow the expectant parents to choose which topics they wish to learn more on. 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 Veterans Memorial Hospital, and a small fee per session for those delivering at another facility. These classes will be offered every three months at Veterans Memorial Hospital.

Preregistration is necessary, as seats are limited. Contact Machelle Bulman, RN at 563-568-3411 or register online at  The hospital’s next Prepared Childbirth Education courses are scheduled for April 2019.
