Primary Care physician at Sheridan Memorial Hospital’s Primary Care Dr. Emily Denney and Sheridan Memorial Hospital’s Women’s Health Unit Registered Nurse Jazz Scott made an appearance on Sheridan Media’s Public Pulse to talk about the postpartum, breastfeeding and lactation services available at SMH. 

To answer questions for first time expecting moms and expecting moms who may just want a little more information, SMH offers two classes. 

Scott said the Childbirth Education class takes place the first Monday of every month at 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. in the hospital’s Outpatient Center 2nd Floor Conference Room, located at 1333 West 5th St. and teaches the basics of birth as well as options available from SMH.

The second class covers breastfeeding and lactation questions and takes place on the third Monday of every month at the same times and location.

Many times, newborn babies may have a difficult time learning to breastfeed. Dr. Denny said this is not uncommon. Many mothers may also experience postpartum depression or other hormonal shifts. 

Dr. Denny has formed a group, offering women a place to share their experiences and speak with those who have similar experiences in a safe and open environment.

The group meets 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. the first and third Tuesday of each month at SMH Primary Care, located 61 South Gould St.

Both Dr. Denny and Scott wanted women who experience postpartum or trouble breastfeeding that they are not alone and staff at SMH are ready to help.
