Healthy Beginnings: Giving your baby the best start

The childbearing year is an incredible journey. Pregnancy, birth, and the early days with a new baby are significant and unique events in the life of any woman. This is a time full of huge physical, emotional, and psychological changes. Standard prenatal care appointments address important medical needs, but we know that women welcome the chance to engage more deeply during this time. With that in mind, Cornerstone Family Healthcare is excited to launch Healthy Beginnings, a new prenatal group program for patients receiving prenatal care in the Ob/Gyn department of our practice.

This program will consist of two sessions, with each session meeting monthly. Session 1, Pregnancy ABC’s, is aimed at women in the beginning of pregnancy and focuses on normal pregnancy changes, coping with common discomforts, healthy pregnancy habits, and stress reduction. Session 2, Birth and Baby’s First Days, is aimed at women in their third trimester and focuses on preparation for labor and birth, breastfeeding basics, early newborn care, and postpartum expectations. At all sessions, an Ob/Gyn provider is present for health assessments, healthy snacks are available, and local resources are highlighted.  Most importantly, these sessions aim to bring women together to share their experiences with each other. Whether expecting her first baby or her third (or her fifth!), every woman has something to share which is of value to the other participants in the group.

More information about the Healthy Beginnings program, including our current schedule of meetings, is available by contacting Cornerstone’s Health Educator at (845) 563-8043. Stay tuned for updates on this program!
