CCMH offers many educational classes to support and assist expecting families at this exciting time in their lives.
Childbirth Education Classes are offered at CCMH for expecting families to learn the basics about giving birth, including what to expect during labor and delivery, BVAC, C-section, and unmedicated birth. It is here you’ll learn breathing and relaxation techniques for a more comfortable and focused birthing process, accompanied by a “labor rehearsal” enabling you to get a feel for each stage of labor and delivery. Mother and baby care topics are also covered, giving you the skills you’ll need after returning home with your newborn. This course consists of three sessions and is free of charge if you deliver your child at Comanche County Memorial Hospital.
Sibling Classes are available for children to learn about being the best big brother or sister by showing them how to hold their new sibling and offering open discussions about how they are feeling about the newest addition to the family.
Breastfeeding Classes are offered at CCMH, the only breastfeeding resource center in the region, and recognized by Unicef. Certified lactation consultants provide education and support for breastfeeding mothers and their families. The class is designed to discuss the benefits of breastfeeding as well as give practical information and teach proper breastfeeding techniques.
