FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


Riverside Pediatric Group Announces Free Prenatal Classes for Mothers Delivering at Hospitals in the Northern New Jersey Metro Area

SECAUCUS, N.J. – September 26, 2012– Riverside Pediatric Group (Riverside), Northern New Jersey’s premiere pediatric group renowned for offering the longest hours of any pediatric practice in the country, announced today that it will offer free prenatal classes for mothers delivering at hospitals in the Northern New Jersey Metro area. The free, day-long childbirthing class includes a presentation on what to expect during the birthing process, how to best prepare, breathing and relaxation techniques and information on Cesarean deliveries.

“As part of our commitment to giving back to the community, our free prenatal classes are intended to provide a caring, educational environment in order to answer questions and help to relieve the concerns associated with childbirth,” says Zeyad Baker, M.D., C.P.O., Riverside. “Our exemplary team of pediatricians and healthcare professionals embody the medical home approach, viewing each patient as a whole, rather than playing the conventional role as intermittent providers of care at brief patient visits for isolated issues.

The latter part of the birthing class day includes breast feeding instruction by a certified lactation consultant, newborn care information by a board-certified pediatrician and a question and answer session.  This educational day prepares single or couple parents-to-be on what to expect from the time labor begins until the first visit with the pediatrician.

“We are committed to collaborating with parents in all decision-making and emphasize preventative care and around-the-clock access to a child’s healthcare team,” Baker adds. “We look forward to providing free prenatal classes for the benefit of families and the community.”

The class includes free lunch and refreshments. Only those who sign-up in advance – with a limited number of spots available – will be permitted to attend. Please contact Patient Care Coordinator Miriam Baker, J.D., M.P.P., at mbaker@riversidepeds.com to register.

Upcoming classes will take place at Crown Plaza Hotel, 2 Harmon Plaza, Secaucus, N.J., from 10:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.  For a list of scheduled dates, please visit www.RiversidePeds.com.
