All About Baby

At Carle Foundation Hospital, we know you and your baby are unique. That's why we offer so many choices. Whether you are adding to your family through adoption, preparing for your first childbirth experience or refreshing your prepared childbirth skills, we have the right class for you. We offer classes on everything from breastfeeding to sibling classes. Our classes have been designed to teach you valuable information about baby care and pregnancy. We encourage you, as well as your family and friends, to attend these classes. The more information you gather beforehand can only help you and your family after you bring your baby home. We find that the classes about pregnancy and baby care can really help parents and families prepare for this exciting event.

All of our classes are open to both Carle and non-Carle patients. A small fee is charged for some classes in order to cover expenses, but for most classes there are no fees. We do ask, however, that you register in advance for any of the classes offered.

For more information or to register for a class, please call (217) 383-6962.

First Aid & CPR

Formal first-aid and CRP training can easily be overlooked. Relying on instinct or what has been learned by practice is common, but formal first-aid and CRP training may save a life. All courses are taught by an American Heart Association certified instructor. It is a free two-year certification course for all members of our community. These courses do not fulfill the healthcare provider requirement.
