NBC's TODAY show Airs Story on the Grandparents Class Offered at Swedish

SEATTLE, Feb. 6, 2012 - NBC's nationally broadcast TODAY show recently aired a story on the Grandparents Class that Swedish offers.

The almost three-minute piece introduced by co-anchor Matt Lauer and reported on by Kevin Tibbles profiles a local family whose grandparents attended the class. It also features a soundbite from Dr. Jane Uhlir, executive director of Women and Infant Services at Swedish, and a grandparent herself.

As the description for the class reads, "Babies haven't changed, but what we know about them has changed. This fun and informative class teaches grandparents the latest information regarding pregnancy and parenting. It covers current trends in maternity practices and infant care. Included is the most current information regarding breastfeeding and the reasons for putting new babies to sleep on their back. It also gives grandparents a chance to discuss new ideas about parenting and how they can play an important role."

This three-hour course, which is offered twice a month, ends with a tour of the Labor & Delivery unit at Swedish/First Hill for the expectant grandparents.
