Parenting Is the Ultimate Learning Experience
Just as parenting is sure to go beyond anything you’ve ever experienced, our approach to your care goes beyond appointments and scheduled procedures. We provide resources for women and their partners or support people to prepare for the major lifestyle change just around the bend. If you are at least 20 weeks along, now is the time to register for courses in childbirth, breastfeeding, infant CPR and safety, and more. Call 1.888.611.4462 or register online.
Childbirth Preparation – Learn to read your body’s cues about when to head to the hospital, plus practice relaxation techniques and breathing methods, receive labor support tips and medication options, tour the Birthing Center and ask any questions you might have.
Baby Care – Learn the basics: bathing, feeding, home & car seat safety, milestones to look out for in preparation for doctor visits. Get expert advice on sleeping patterns, tips to soothe your infant and methods for keeping him or her safe, including the correct way to perform CPR and The Heimlich Maneuver on infants.
Breastfeeding – Breastfeeding gives babies the best start in life, meeting all of their nutritional needs and then some. But where do you start? To prepare new mothers, we offer two different clinics at the Hurley Children’s Center—Sumathi Mukkamala Children’s Center. Our Specialty Breastfeeding Clinic is held the second Tuesday of each month, a 1 hour session meant to help with breastfeeding challenges such as low milk supply and complex latch issues. Our Breastfeeding Support Clinic is the 1st, 3rd, & 4th Tuesday of the month. Lactation Consultants assist with correct positioning and proper latching. No more anxiety! Our knowledgeable lactation consultants will have you breastfeeding with confidence.
