As the first baby born at Sidney Health Center in 2017, Micah-Zane
and his parents received a gift bag full of baby items valued at more than $300
from the Sidney Health Center Caring Corner Gift Shop Volunteers.
Although Micah-Zane was the first baby born in 2017, 2016 was
a busy year for the obstetric department.
In the past year, 132 babies were delivered at Sidney Health Center
averaging 11 babies per month. Seventy
of the babies were girls while sixty-two were boys.
Sidney Health Center’s female Obstetrician Gynecologists provide
essential obstetrical services to women living in the MonDak region including
preconception counseling, genetic screening and diagnosis as well as management
of both low and high risk pregnancies through delivery and follow-up care. Dr. Lisa
Ross and Dr. Maula Tambi have been practicing in Sidney since summer 2016.

The obstetric department also offers a One-Day Childbirth
Class four times per year with the first one in 2017 scheduled for February 4
in the hospital classroom from 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. Instructors, Joyce Schulz, RN and Katharine
King, RN will review the following topics: relaxation, anatomy and physiology
of childbirth, types of delivery, anesthesia, breast feeding and child care. The session is free of charge; however,
donations up to $25 are gladly accepted to cover expenses.
A new option for those parents, who cannot attend
conventional prenatal classes or would like home-based education, is the
eLearning Childbirth Education Program.
It may also be used as a “refresher” course or to reinforce what you
learned in class. The interactive
web-based program includes animated illustrations, videos and voice-overs and
can be viewed on a PC, Mac or mobile devices.
