MOMS ORANGE COUNTY OFFERS FREE CHILDBIRTH PREPARATION CLASSES FOR ENGLISH AND SPANISH-SPEAKING EXPECTANT PARENTS
Four-Week Sessions Available Throughout 2018, Beginning February 6 to Help Expecting Orange County Couples Have Healthy Babies
Santa Ana, Calif. (January 19, 2018) – MOMS Orange County, a Santa Ana-based nonprofit dedicated to helping mothers and their families have healthy babies, is pleased to announce the start of its four-class childbirth preparation series for English-speaking participants beginning Feb. 6 at its main office in Santa Ana. The series repeats throughout 2018 with classes in Spanish offered during alternating months.
MOMS Orange County’s childbirth preparation classes are one of only a few in Orange County offered at no-cost to both English and Spanish-speaking parents-to-be. Classes cover pregnancy anatomy and physiology, prenatal care, preparation for labor and delivery, postpartum care, newborn care and breastfeeding, and are led by the organization’s health educators.
“Our classes help mothers to have healthy pregnancies which lead to healthy babies,” said Pamela Pimentel, RN, CEO of MOMS Orange County. “Offering access to education and support is our passion and we look forward to supporting Orange County families to have healthy babies in 2018.”
MOMS Orange County was founded 25 years ago in response to a crisis in access to prenatal healthcare for low-income, at-risk women. Today, MOMS Orange County’s model of Maternal-Child Health Coordination serves more than 3,300 low-income families annually, directly influencing improvements in birth outcomes, maternal health, and developmental indicators among infants within a highly disadvantaged population.
