Looking for a special way to celebrate Mother’s Day this year? If you are an expecting mother,
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 to discuss the best practices in infant care including safe sleeping behavior, breastfeeding, cue-based feeding and much more while bonding over tea, sandwiches and dessert.
“Being a grandmother is one of the most special bonds in this world,” said Diane Hosmer, R.N. MSN IBCLC of Sutter Medical Foundation, Women’s Services Center. “Our Grandmother Tea event takes an opportunity to celebrate this special bond while providing both expecting moms and grandmothers with the latest techniques in infant care. It’s about providing both women with new information and ways to support each other in these new, important roles.”
Sutter Amador Hospital welcomes more than 25 newborns each month, roughly a kindergarten class, and is the first in the Sutter Health system to offer a Grandmother Tea event that focuses on hospital experts educating grandparents in infant care.
This 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.
