Description

La Porte Hospital has added yet another free class to the series of childbirth and family care classes – this one focused on how to help brothers and sisters adjust to a new baby in the house. The Super Siblings class is a one-session class that helps children ages 3 to 7 prepare for the new baby and learn positive sibling skills. A parent must attend. The class is one Saturday every other month from 2 – 4 p.m., in the La Porte Hospital Childbirth Education and Prenatal Classroom, 1007 Lincolnway, La Porte. The Next class is February 9. The class is free, but pre-registration required by visiting laportehealth.com/childbirth. Other upcoming classes hosted by the La Porte Hospital Birthing and Family Care Center are:

The first weeks after delivery are always the hardest, and we want to be there to support your breastfeeding success. The drop-in clinic provides open times, no appointment needed, for moms to meet with an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant or a Certified Lactation Counselor to help sort out any issues and answer questions. Some concerns that typically come up are: latching techniques for baby, overproduction or underproduction of breast milk, hand expression, nipple tenderness, and baby weights. The breastfeeding drop-in clinic will be from 10 a.m.-12 p.m., the third Tuesday of the month in the Lactation Lounge within Birthing & Family Care Center at La Porte Hospital. Upcoming date January 15.
