Baptist Health Paducah Offers Free Classes for Expecting Parents

Baptist Health Paducah is hosting free community classes for expecting parents in April to provide support during this exciting yet sometimes anxiety-inducing time. These classes aim 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. Expecting parents will have the opportunity to learn about the childbirth process by touring mom and baby rooms and Labor and Delivery. The classes 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 and a Kangaroo Club support group led by her. The Kangaroo Club will offer 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. and April 10 from 12-1 p.m., Childbirth Class on April 9 from 5-7 p.m., and April 20 from 10 a.m., 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. Classes are free to attend, and registration can be done on the Baptist Health website.
