Childbirth Education

Mary Duke is proud to bring Lamaze childbirth education to Bowling Green, Ky.  She offers group courses and one-on-one. Mary’s childbirth classes pair well with the birth & breastfeeding classes at The Medical Center at Bowling Green and TJ Samson Community hospital in Glasgow, Ky.

Found a course that meets your needs? Contact Mary and let her know you’re interested.

12 Week courses are planned based off interest. If I have 3 or more couples who express interest, I will plan a 12 week course.
