TCHC to offer free refresher course on prenatal care

Tri-County Health Care's OB Department will offer a refresher course for mothers expecting another child. The course will be held from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 14 at Tri-County Health Care in Wadena. The course is free of charge.

According to Sarah Riedel, OB labor and delivery nurse at Tri-County Health Care, who will be teaching the class, the course is intended for those who've had a baby before but it's been awhile, had a different coach or no coach last time and the coach needs tips or someone who had their baby at another hospital.

The course will include, but is not limited to: warning signs of pregnancy and premature labor, when to go to the hospital, stages of labor and coaching tips, newborn and postpartum care, medical interventions, non-medical pain relief, breast/bottle feeding challenges and rewards, tour of maternity wing, birthing suits and more. Partners and coaches are encouraged to attend.

Pre-registration is required by calling Kris Wallgren, Tri-County Health Care OB Supervisor, at (218) 632-8781.
