Ramona Pregnancy Care Clinic will host childbirth preparation and parenting classes this fall.
A two-session childbirth preparation series will be held at the clinic, 1530 Main St., Suite 6, on Thursdays, Sept. 26 and Oct. 3 at 11:30 a.m. Class One will focus on the hospital experience such as when to go to the hospital, what will happen, tests and coping measures. Emergency birth will be discussed in case there is not enough time to get to the hospital.
Class Two will focus on natural and drug-free childbirth. Epidural, labor positions and how to write a birth plan also will be discussed. Attendance at both classes is encouraged.
The series of free parenting classes at the clinic will begin on Monday, Oct. 7, and continue each Monday through Oct. 28 at 7 p.m. Via DVD, childbearing experts will share practical wisdom, honest confessions and decades of experience.
“Essentials of Parenting: The Power of Love” shows how to enrich and enjoy the bond between child and parent. Participants will discover that a good relationship with their son or daughter is the sharpest tool in every parent’s toolbox when it comes to passing along their faith and values, say organizers.
For more information or to register for either or both classes, call the clinic at 760-789-7059.
