Northern Light Maine Coast Hospital Offering Childbirth Classes via ZOOM

Date: 07/14/2020


Northern Light Maine Coast Hospital continues to support expecting mothers with information-packed on-line childbirth classes.  Participants are encouraged to attend with a partner and bring questions.  Topics to be covered include: Understanding labor – how to know when labor really starts, when to call the hospital, how to manage the discomforts of labor, how your partner can help, newborn care, and post-partum care.


The next class is scheduled for July 25 at 9am. The staff are aiming to offer classes every other mouth. “We are so very excited to have the opportunity to bring this information to our expecting mothers,” shares Angela Allen, RN, BSN, CLC.  “It has been challenging not to meet with these women in person, and we want to ensure that they have a safe and positive experience here at Maine Coast.  Zoom is the next best thing – we have already had some great feedback.”


The classes continue to be interactive, with ample tie for questions and discussion.  “The Maine Coast birthing staff are extremely passionate about their work,” explains manager Kristin Mullen, RN. “They care deeply about their patients’ desire to prepare for the birth of their child.”
