AdventHealth Gordon hosting Childbirth Education & Breastfeeding Classes in Sep.

September 2nd, 2022 – 12:40 PM

Press Release –

AdventHealth Gordon is hosting childbirth education and breastfeeding classes on Tuesday, Sept. 13, and Tuesday, Sept. 20 from 6 to 8 pm in The Baby Place lounge/classroom.

There are a series of two classes each month, and attendance at both classes is necessary to receive all educational information. The first class is focused on childbirth education, and the second class in the series is the breastfeeding class. Childbirth education and breastfeeding classes can provide a great environment for questions, sharing fears, and making a birthing plan.

During childbirth education classes, parents will learn what to expect before, during, and after birth to
build their confidence. Knowing what to expect can make a substantial difference in one’s birthing
experience. Breastfeeding classes are taught by AdventHealth Gordon lactation counselors. Every time
a mother breastfeeds her baby, she helps their immune system develop and their brain grow.
Classes are a good opportunity to be with other moms, make new friends, and learn about the various
stages of breastfeeding.

These classes are free, but registration is required. Mothers may also bring their spouses/significant
others. These classes are offered at no cost on select dates throughout the year. Masks are required to
be worn while on the campus of AdventHealth Gordon. To register, please call The Baby Place at 706-879-4737.
