Baptist Health Paducah Offers Free Classes for Expecting Parents

Baptist Health Paducah is hosting a series of free community classes for expectant parents in April to provide support and guidance during this exciting but sometimes anxiety-inducing time. The goal of these classes is to educate, build confidence, and create a sense of community for new parents. Led by health experts such as Board Certified Lactation Consultant Kim Coram and clinical educators Martha Veatch and Cindy Walker, the classes will cover topics such as childbirth, breastfeeding, and more.

During the Childbirth Classes, attendees will have the opportunity to learn about the childbirth process by touring mom and baby rooms and Labor and Delivery. They will also cover visitor policies, what to expect once admitted, and answer any questions to help parents feel prepared for delivery. For those interested in breastfeeding, there will be a Breastfeeding Matters class led by Coram as well as a Kangaroo Club support group that offers a safe space for breastfeeding mothers to share experiences, voice concerns, and encourage one another in their breastfeeding journey.

The classes will take place at Baptist Health Paducah in the Zimmerman NICU Education Room and Maternal Child Unit. Scheduled classes for April include Breastfeeding Matters on April 2 from 6-8 p.m., April 10 from 12-1 p.m., Childbirth Class on April 9 from 5-7 p.m., and April 20 from 10 a.m.-12 p.m., and Kangaroo Club on April 11 from 1-2:30 p.m. Baptist Health emphasizes the importance of having reliable resources, advice, and support during the childbirth and breastfeeding process
