Becoming a Mom

The Pike County Health Department is partnering up with March of Dimes to bring prenatal education classes to the expecting families in Pike County.

Prenatal education is an important component of supporting healthy pregnancies. Prenatal education promotes the maintenance of healthy lifestyles during pregnancy, helping expectant mothers manage stress, support a healthy diet, avoid harmful chemicals and situations, recognize warning signs and symptoms that mean something may be wrong with their pregnancy, and prepare for labor and delivery.

We will be offering these classes free of charge throughout the year and they will be posted here as well as on our facebook events page. Each class will cover a different topic and we encourage those wishing to attend to pre-register.
