Firelands Regional Medical Center will be hosting Stork Express on Saturday, June 14 from 9 to 11 a.m. at Firelands Main Campus, 1111 Hayes Avenue, Sandusky.
Stork Express is a free program designed to give pregnant women the opportunity to start on paperwork that is required during their hospital stay. During the program, each participant will review and sign the necessary paperwork, watch the required safety video and take a tour of the OB Department.
Stork Express helps to cut down on the amount of paperwork during admission, allowing the focus to be on the birthing process. It also provides mom-to-be and her spouse/support person the opportunity to meet a nurse from the OB Department and ask any question that may be lingering as their exciting day approaches. Any mom-to-be that is at least 34 weeks into her pregnancy is welcome to attend. A spouse/support person is also welcome and is encouraged to participate.
Register online by visiting the calendar of events at firelands.com or by calling 419-557-7840. The Foundation for Firelands provides funding to make this program possible.
