Childbirth Education

There’s a new resource in town for expecting mothers. The Pre-Maternal Home and Healthy Start are offering Childbirth Education Sessions, Thursdays from 12 to 1 at the patient’s hostel in Nome.

The free sessions are a welcoming, supportive space for pregnant women. Labor and delivery nurses and childbirth educators talk about whatever the women want to know–from breastfeeding strategies, to maximizing comfort during labor, to preparing your birth bag, and more.
