Lyons Parks and Recreation Hosts New Class for Expecting Parents
Lyons Parks and Recreation Department have added a new class to their program schedule for expecting parents that Parks and Recreation Director Frank Torres says is an important service for residents.
Many expecting parents have nowhere to turn for information, Torres said.
“We wanted to provide expecting families in our community and neighboring areas with a class that would cover the important issues surrounding pregnancy and parenting,” said Torres.
The four week class will be taught by licensed registered nurse Carole Cannon. Carole Cannon, RN, MSN has worked in the Neonatal Unit at UIC Hospital for almost 30 years.
“Since working at UIC, I have seen countless expecting parents try to find classes to provide them with much needed information, but have been unsuccessful, said Cannon. “When Lyons Parks and Recreation Director Frank Torres asked me to develop and teach the class, I immediately said yes and began to put the class together.”
Cannon said the class will help and reassure expecting parents of Lyons and the surrounding communities.
The first class starts Wednesday, February 13th from 7p.m. to 8:30p.m. and will cover many topics including pregnancy, labor, delivery options, motherhood and taking care of a newborn.
The cost is $20.00. Contact Lyons Parks and Recreation department at 708-442-4858 for more information or to sign up.
