“God’s Gift”


In the 2009-2010 school year the Center proceeds with the lessons for couples expecting a child.

The lessons are conducted by Valentina Aleksandrovna Lyaskova, an obstetrician-gynecologist and a psychologist, Svetlana Sergeyevna Tomorovskaya, an obstetrician of higher category, and Samoylenko Natalya Nikolaevna, a gynecologist of higher category.

They teach such important subjects as “Physiology of pregnancy, nutrition, general regime”, “Periods and stages of childbirth”, “Husband’s support and his involvement”, ”The first contact with your child”, “Rules of breast feeding”, “Nursing the newborn” and “Recovering after birth.”

Each lesson involves special gymnastics for the pregnant.

Mothers-to-be learn lullabies and bedside fairy-tales.

The program includes meetings with a priest, who imparts traditional knowledge of the Christian view on conception, childbirth, upbringing, giving a name, the Sacrament of Baptism, the choice and duties of godparents, the Sacrament of Eucharist and the starting of spiritual upbringing.

The learning course begins with a pleading service and ends with a childbirth blessing service.

Graduates are blessed by the priest with the Icon of the Mother of God "Succor in Travail".

The courses are conducted for every new group.
