Breastfeeding Basics

Breastfeeding is the most natural and nutritious way to encourage your baby's development. The nutrients found in the milk you produce and the special benefits these nutrients provide can’t be duplicated. Simply put, nature does the best job of providing for your baby's needs.

Breastfeeding Basics will help you understand all of the benefits of breastfeeding for you and your baby. It will also provide you with advice on how to begin breastfeeding in the hospital and tips for continuing at home.

If you are breastfeeding, and you have questions or concerns after leaving the hospital, feel free to call our staff for guidance and support at (918) 225-8401.

Infant CPR/Choking

During the Infant CPR class, you will learn how to prevent an emergency, provide rescue breathing, perform chest compressions and relieve an airway obstruction.

This class is taught by video and instructor, and uses the guidelines of the American Heart Association. There is not a test given, but you will have the chance to practice learned techniques on infant mannequins.

Labor Class

Includes signs of labor, pain management and comfort measures.

Delivery/Recovery Class

Discusses pushing techniques, medical interventions and care for mom and baby after birth.

Postpartum/Newborn Class

Covers changes in your body, postpartum fitness and baby care.

Sibling Classes

Something for Siblings is a class designed for children who are at least three years old. Parents and older siblings are encouraged to attend as well. Topics include preparing for the baby and the big day. Siblings will even get to make “baby and me” t-shirts.

If you are delivering at Hillcrest Hospital Cushing Women’s Health Center, this class is free. If you are delivering elsewhere, the cost is $15 per child. Additional children attending from the same family are only $5.
