Wellness Classes - From Birth and Beyond
Big brothers- and sisters-to-be tour the birthing center, see a newborn baby and learn to help in the daily care of the new arrival. Children must be 3 or older to take the class. Class materials are provided by the Fort Atkinson Kiwanis Club. Parental attendance is mandatory. Please only register the child's/children's name.
Classes cover the labor process and delivery, c-sections, relaxation techniques, options for pain management during labor, as well as new-baby care basics. In addition, a lactation consultant will provide an overview of breastfeeding and lactation services, and a certified car seat technician will provide car seat basics.
Mothers should attend classes in mid-to-late pregnancy.
