Teddy Bear Clinic: Children's Field Trip Program to Bon Secours Hospitals
Our popular and educational Teddy Bear Clinic program is geared for children ages 4-7 years old, and it is open to elementary schools and day care centers throughout the community. During the morning trip to our St. Mary's Hospital, St. Francis Medical Center or St. Francis Watkins Centre Emergency Departments, children are introduced to basic safety issues and then work with our nurses to learn about what to expect if they have to go to the hospital for a cut or broken bone. Each child brings a stuffed animal from home that will receive a stitch for an imaginary cut and a small cast for an imaginary broken bone. Class sizes are limited to a maximum of 18 students and only run during the local county school year.

Advanced Comfort Measures

This class is aimed at those who have already completed a childbirth class; whether they finished last week or three years ago!  Our Lamaze certified childbirth educators will work with you to practice the comfort measures you learned in class and go over a few ways to expand upon those.  This class is mostly hands on, with minimal lecture, so please be sure to wear comfortable clothing.  Since it is essential that you have already completed a childbirth class please include in the comments section (during checkout) where you took your childbirth class.  This class can be taken multiple times during your pregnancy (2 hours).

Samples of birth plans will be provided with options for labor, birth, and mom and baby's care afterwards. The cost of the class includes a copy of "Your Birth Plan" by author Kathy Stewart.
