Mother’s Day is on Sunday, May 12. There are plenty of events to celebrate moms or for expecting moms to prepare for motherhood.

‘Just the Facts, Mom!’
St. Joe’s Maternity Education Programs

No one is more excited about Mother’s Day than a new mom, or expectant mom. Our neighborhood has a longtime source for accurate knowledge when it comes to stress relief surrounding childbirth and parenting a newborn at CHI St. Joseph East.

Attendees can also learn how to care for a newborn and learn how the body prepares for breastfeeding and how it works.

CHI Saint Joseph recommends that pregnancies be at approximately 20 weeks when scheduling the classes. Offerings include a 4-week series, 2-week series, weekend 4-hour child- birth education class: “Just the Facts, Mom!”, weekend childbirth education class, baby steps class, breastfeeding, infant CPR, sibling class, neonatal intensive care unit parent support, and women’s hospital tour sign up.
