Samaritan North Lincoln Hospital is aiming to take a little bit of the unexpected out of expecting a baby, with a one-day intensive childbirth class scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 7.
Led by registered nurses Stephanie Marshall and Trista Selfridge, the class will offer guidance on preparing for the challenges of labor and delivery.
Participants will learn about breastfeeding, relaxation techniques, what to expect when they arrive at the hospital, postpartum care, newborn care and more.
Marshall and Selfridge will also discuss options for handling pain and will cover the basics of medical interventions and possible complications.
The class will run from noon to 6 pm and is free for those who plan to deliver at Samaritan North Lincoln Hospital’s Family Birthing Center. Refreshments and snacks will be provided, along with the opportunity to tour the Family Birthing Center.
Registration is required; call 541-996-7179.
