Crookston, MN -- RiverView Health is again sponsoring classes for expecting parents. The course includes four two-hour classes offered on four consecutive Tuesdays. The sessions will be held on Sept. 3, 10, 17 and 24.

The first and second classes will focus on the stages of labor, breathing and relaxation techniques during labor and delivery, coaching instructions and a tour of hospital rooms. The later classes will focus on baby care, breastfeeding and CPR. All area physicians encourage their obstetrics patients to attend all four classes, with a support coach, to better understand what to expect during pregnancy and childbirth; and to help ease the fear of the unknown and make for a more enjoyable childbirth experience.

The course instructors for all sessions will be labor/delivery nurses at RiverView Health. The sessions each start at 7:00 PM and last until 9:00 PM and will be held in the Classroom at RiverView. Twenty-five dollars is the fee if you are not delivering at RiverView. For more information or to pre-register, call the obstetrics department at RiverView at 218-281-9300 or 1-800-743-6551, extension 300 or register on-line under the “events’’ category at www.riverviewhealth.org.
