Lincoln Memorial Hospital reminds expecting families that each month
it offers a free prenatal class. The next 3-hour class will be held
Sunday, August 27 from 1 p.m. – 4 p.m. The class will be held in
Steinfort A at Abraham Lincoln Memorial Hospital located at 200
Stahlhut Drive in Lincoln, Illinois.
Kathy Vogt, Registered Nurse and Lamaze Certified Childbirth
Educator, will be teaching the class that is designed for expectant
families. The class will teach participants how to know when it’s
time to come to the hospital, what to expect during labor and
delivery, breathing techniques and other pain relief options. The
class will also touch on newborn feeding and care. After the
classroom portion of the course, participants will be shown the
Family Maternity Suites at ALMH.

encourage expecting mothers and their support partners to attend. The birth
process, even for second time mothers, can be both overwhelming and joyful. The
knowledge mothers gain from our prenatal class helps lessen their anxiety.
Information is empowering,” said Elizabeth Meyrick, RN, Manager of the
ALMH’s Family Maternity Suites is a state-of-the-art obstetrical
