May 4, 2017 — New parents have questions. Marshall Medical Center’s
Community Health Education Department has answers. Pregnant women and
their partners are welcome to join our next All About Having a Baby class
beginning May 4.
The eight-week series will run each Thursday through June 15 at 681 Main
St. in Placerville, in the Apple Pear Room located in the second floor.
Each session will prepare moms and dads-to-be with healthy pregnancy and
baby care advice. Expecting parents can learn about labor and birth, baby
care, breastfeeding and more.
Participants will hear guest speakers, take part in demonstrations and
receive a tour of Marshall’s Birth Center. At the end of the course,
they’ll take part in a baby a shower. And it will all come courtesy
of a most experienced instructor.
Community Health Education coordinator Paula Conriquez, ICCE, IBCLC, will
facilitate the lessons (2017 marks her 13th year teaching prenatal classes).
She is a Board-Certified Lactation Consultant and Certified Childbirth Educator.
There is no enrollment fee. Register by calling 530-626-2990 or online
at the Classes / Events section of www.marshallmedical.org. Even they
miss the May 4 event, participants can “drop in” in ensuing
weeks. Space is limited.
