Created especially for brothers- and sisters-to-be! This single-session class is geared for the 3-8 year old. The one-hour class celebrates their new role and gives them a peek at life with the new baby. The open house format includes a short video and several hands-on activities with their parents. A tour is included to help prepare them for mom’s hospital stay.
CPR for Parents and Grandparents
This American Heart Association course is taught by a certified CPR instructor. This class is intended for expectant parents, parents and grandparents. The focus of the class is infant and child, but adult CPR will also be addressed. The class also includes valuable safety and prevention information to take home (baby-proofing your home, etc.).
Expecting your second baby? This one-session class doesn’t just “refresh” your memory of your previous childbirth class. You’ll discover how your body will experience pregnancy, birth and postpartum differently this time around. The registered nurse educator will also update you on changes in maternity care since your last baby and offer tips on preparing your first child.
Breastfeeding support groups
Share experiences, concerns and problem-solving techniques with our lactation consultant and other mothers who understand life with a breastfeeding baby. Bring your baby and make new friends! The groups meet weekly at Community Hospital North and Community Hospital South. For more information, call 317-621-5380 (North) or 317-887-7927 (South).
