MRHC to Host Pregnancy, Birth, and Beyond Event

Are you a new parent, expecting a baby, or planning a pregnancy? Manning Regional Healthcare Center (MRHC) has partnered with St. Anthony Regional Hospital and McFarland Clinic to host a Pregnancy, Birth, and Beyond event on Tuesday, April 5th from 4:00-6:00p.m. at MRHC. 

The event encourages current, expecting, and future parents to learn more about the partnership between MRHC, St. Anthony, and McFarland Clinic who provide a seamless pregnancy, delivery, and newborn care experience close to home. 

“Here at MRHC, we continue to offer prenatal care to those in our rural areas even though we aren’t delivering babies in Manning. It gives our patients an opportunity to stay close to home and still receive quality care,” shared MRHC Clinic Director, Shelby Dickson, RN. 

The partnership with St. Anthony’s allows mothers to receive prenatal care at MRHC, deliver at St. Anthony’s with Dr. McLaws, and then continue to receive post-natal and newborn care in Manning following delivery. Thanks to the newly enhanced records systems, the med staff teams at both locations can easily access a patient’s chart as necessary to ensure seamless care. 

At the April event, the obstetrics teams from MRHC, St. Anthony’s and McFarland will be on hand to share more about: 

  • Pregnancy planning and prenatal care at MRHC 
  • Birthing experience at St. Anthony 
  • Newborn care, infant safety, and sibling adjustment 
  • Infant feeding and nutrition 
  • Wellness and specialty care as your child develops 
  • Local support resources for new parents 

Register in advance for the come-and-go event here and receive a free Halo Sleep Sack. Walk-ins are also welcome.
