NVRH Presents

The YMCA Diabetes Prevention Program FREE

You will gain tools for healthy living while reducing your risk for type 2 diabetes.

You may be at risk for diabetes, and not know it. Consider these questions: Do you have a family member with diabetes? Are you overweight? Are you 45 years of age or older? Do you exercise less than 30min most days of the week? If you answered “Yes” to 2 or more of these questions, call us to see if this program is right for you.

Childbirth Education Classes
NVRH offers Childbirth Education Classes throughout the year. These classes should be taken during the last three months of pregnancy and are taught by certified childbirth educators. One of our skilled Physical Therapists, Jennifer Hemond, MPT regularly attends these classes to teach proper body mechanics and discuss common physiological issues associated with pregnancy. Classes are held at the hospital either on Wednesday evenings for six weeks, or on two Saturdays. The classes explain what you can expect during labor and delivery, as well as breathing techniques and other methods of relaxation. These techniques will help you use your body more effectively in labor, help you stay comfortable, and can reduce your need for pain medication. Husbands, partners, or supportive friends or family members are welcome to attend the classes with you. Classes are FREE OF CHARGE. For more information about Childbirth Education Classes at NVRH call Mindy Warren, Director or Birth Center Services, at 748-7339 or Sharon Baker RN, at 748-7337.
