Highlands announces childbirth classes for August

Staff Report

PRESTONSBURG – Pregnancy is a time of excitement and anticipation. That’s why Highlands Health System is offering free classes exclusively for moms and their significant others.

For most pregnant women, even if you already have a child, the labor and birth process can be both overwhelming and joyful. Many women and their partners choose to attend childbirth classes to gather information and lessen their anxiety. In the class we will cover topics such as labor, anesthesia, the post-partum period, newborn care, and also enjoy a tour of the labor and delivery wing.

Classes will be taught by Highlands’ highly skilled nursing staff who will also be available to answer any additional questions.

The dates for the pregnancy classes are Tuesday, Aug. 4 and Thursday, Aug. 13, 5-7 p.m., each day.

Classes will be conducted in the board room on the fifth floor of the Highlands Medical Office Building.

RSVP for classes by calling (606) 886-7438.

It is preferred that mothers be at least 28-30 weeks pregnant and attend both classes.
