Class designed for expectant parentsJuly 9, 2020
JASPER — Expectant parents in the last trimester are invited to attend Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center’s Baby Behavior class from 6 to 7 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 5.
The class is being held in the Medical Arts Building Conference Room, 721 W. 13th St. This building is directly behind (north of) the hospital. Enter through the main doors. The conference room is the main room in the lower level.
The class is free to those who are delivering at Memorial Hospital or $15. The “Baby Behavior” classes are conducted by qualified obstetrical nursing personnel.
Using current research on baby behavior, class instructors will help parents better understand their baby. Teaching parents about things such as infant sleep, feeding cues, engagement and disengagement cues and crying will help parents become not only more relaxed, but more confident in their new role as parents.
It is highly recommended parents take this class before the baby arrives. However, if parents are unable to, this class can be helpful for parents within the first one to two months of the baby being born as well.
Go to Memorial Hospital’s website at www.mhhcc.org and click on “Classes & Events.” If unable to access online, call 812-996-2399. For specific class questions, call the OB Lactation Services at 812-996-0383.
