UofL Hospital provides free prenatal, infant care classes in 2019

The Center for Women & Infants at UofL Hospital will offer free prenatal and newborn care classes to the public throughout 2019 to help families prepare for their new arrival.

Topics covered in the classes include a woman’s body changes during pregnancy, signs of true labor, comfort techniques, medical procedures, vaginal and Cesarean delivery, kangaroo care, postpartum care, infant nutrition and breastfeeding.

Register for either a series of five weekly classes or one blitz class, which covers all topics during a daylong weekend session. Attendance during the second trimester or after the 20th week of pregnancy is recommended.

The last class of each series will be open to grandparents and will focus on the latest infant care recommendations. The third class of the series is dedicated to breastfeeding and is open to those needing a refresher.

Classes are held in the Glass Room, located in the basement of the Ambulatory Care Building, 550 S. Jackson St., across from UofL Hospital. Parking is free in the hospital’s garage. Please bring parking ticket to class for validation.
