Decide early to register to master the art. Breastfeeding Classes are wonderful for the new mom. We offer classes to suit your availability. Like any new skill, breastfeeding takes knowledge and practice to be successful. Pregnant women who learn about how to breastfeed are more likely to be successful than those who do not. Breastfeeding classes offer pregnant women and their partners the chance to prepare and ask questions before the baby’s arrival. Classes are offered for your convenience.
Birthing classes often are offered through local hospitals and birthing centers. Some classes follow a specific method, such as Lamaze or the Bradley method. Others review labor techniques from a variety of methods. You might want to read about the different methods beforehand to see if one appeals more to you than others. That way, you will know what to sign up for if more than one type of birthing class if offered. Try to sign up for a class several months before your due date. Classes sometimes fill up quickly. Also, make sure the instructor is qualified.
Most women attend the class with the person who will provide support during labor, such as a spouse, sister, or good friend. This person is sometimes called the labor coach. During class, the instructor will go over the signs of labor and review the stages of labor. She will talk about positioning for labor and birth, and ways to control pain. She also will give you strategies to work through labor pains and to help you stay relaxed and in control. You will practice many of these strategies in class, so you are ready when the big day arrives. Classes are held for your convenience on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.
Caring for your health before you become pregnancy (preconception care) will help you learn about any risk factors and treat any medical problems that you may have before you become pregnant.

You and your partner should also undergo genetic counseling and testing before pregnancy. Specific tests may be recommended to find out if a couple is at risk for having a child with certain genetic diseases such as Tay-Sachs and sickle cell.

When a baby lives only a short time or dies before birth due to miscarriage, stillbirth or a painful decision to end the pregnancy, people may assume that the loss is not important. This is really not the case. The intensity of love parents feel for their baby is not measured by how long the baby lived, but in the emotional investment, they have in their child.
For parents expecting to welcome a new life, fnstead facing the reality that their baby has not lived can be immensely difficult. Finding answers to why it has happened can be very important, and this may be something medical staff can tell you, but sometimes there is no clear answer. We offer free bereavement counseling at Maternal treasures Parent Care Center.
