July 25, 2017 (TELLURIDE, CO) — Expecting mothers and their partners are invited to join the Primary Care team at the Telluride Regional Medical Center on Tuesday, August 15, 5:30-6:30p.m., to learn about prenatal health and caring for newborns at altitude.
“We’ll cover pre-natal myths, oxygen needs for infants at altitude, normal schedules for well-baby checks and vaccines, how to get in touch with a nurse if there are questions, when to come in for a sick visit, postpartum depression, and resources for nursing,” said Dr. Christine Mahoney, who specializes in Family Medicine at the Telluride Regional Medical Center.
This bi-lingual orientation for new families is open to everyone. The medical center intends to offer this service once every three months to be sure they’re touching in with newly pregnant moms throughout the year.
