The Community Foundation of Southeast Kansas has awarded a grant to help support free Childbirth Classes offered by Coffeyville Regional Medical Center. The grant has purchased new teaching tools and videos that will be utilized in Childbirth Classes for expectant parents. Instructor Kelci McVey will host her next class November 13th and 14th at CRMC. Class is scheduled from 9 am – 4 pm on Saturday and 1 pm – 4 pm on Sunday.
These classes prepare the mother and father (or other support person) emotionally, physically and intellectually for active participation in the birthing process. The course includes relaxation exercises, what to expect during labor and delivery, breathing and pushing techniques and care after birth, including breastfeeding.
