Heather Thompson, RN and Patient Care Executive at Adventist Health Tillamook shares, ā€œIā€™m excited to be able to offer this to our community again, in-person and in a caring, compassionate space led by our skilled Family Birth Place nurses.ā€ Traditionally, Adventist Health Tillamook held birthing classes regularly up until the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020. Now with limited restrictions on in-person events, several classes have returned.
