Becoming a Mom® Free Prenatal Classes

Being pregnant and having a baby is a wonderful experience, yet it can be scary, too! Whether you are experiencing a pregnancy for the first time or the fourth time, each experience is different and can create new challenges and concerns. The more you can learn with each pregnancy, the better you will be able to care for yourself and your baby and the healthier you will both be.

That’s why Newman Regional Health is proud to offer a FREE group education class called Lyon County Becoming a Mom®.
