Free Childbirth and Breast Feeding Education Classes

Teche Regional Medical Center is now offering FREE Childbirth Preparation and Breast Feeding education classes for the women of our community.

The Childbirth Preparation Class is designed for both first-time parents and experienced parents who have not had previous Lamaze or prepared childbirth instruction.

The course will include stages and phases of labor, Caesarean section, breathing and relaxation techniques, pain control, position options and anesthesia, postpartum care, role of coach, and newborn care.

The Breast Feeding class helps the expectant mother and her partner prepare for breastfeeding. The course will include practical advice on getting started, avoiding problems, and building confidence with nursing your infant. All breastfeeding classes are taught by a nurse  from our nursing staff.

The classes are offered to expecting mothers as a part of Teche Regional's community education at no cost to you.
