Grandmother Tea: SAH Hosts Celebration and Info Session for Generation of Mothers - Sat Oct 14

Sutter Amador Hospital is excited to host a celebration for generations of women to learn the latest techniques in newborn care while celebrating motherhood. Grandmother Tea invites expecting mothers and their moms to attend a free information session with experts from the hospital on Saturday, October 14 at 1pm to discuss the best practices in infant care, including: safe sleeping behavior, breastfeeding, cue-based feeding and much more while boding over tea, sandwiches and dessert.

Saturday, October 14 from 1 p.m. to 3:30 p.m
Registration: 12:30 p.m.
Sutter Amador Hospital, 100 Mission Blvd in Jackson.

“The event is just as much educating the grandmothers as it is the new moms,” said Diane Hosmer, R.N. at Sutter Amador Hospital. “Grandmothers spend a lot of time caring for the infant or providing advice to the new mom. In my position, I see how much things have changed in the past 10 to 15 years in information that we were providing new moms to what their own mothers were taught. Grandmother Tea allows us to educate both women and each topic touches the participants in a different way.”

In addition to receiving the latest information on newborn care, attendees will also have the opportunity to ask hospital experts questions and get firsthand advice on how to prepare for a new baby. The hospital will also provide free education materials, prizes and refreshments for attendees.

The event is free and open to women in the community, including expecting moms and their mothers. Seating is limited so please register in advance by calling 209-223-7452.

Sponsored by Sutter Amador Hospital and Amador Calaveras Breastfeeding Coalition.
In partnership with First 5 Amador, WIC, Calaveras Public Health and Amador Public Health.
