Prenatal Parenting

Are you expecting your first baby(ies) in August or beyond? We have an exciting parenting course for prenatal parents.

Becoming a new parent is exciting and challenging. Together we’ll learn what to expect – from welcoming your baby to first steps. Expecting parents are invited to a 4 part series on preparing for the transition from pregnancy to parenthood. This class does not replace hospital childbirth preparation classes. Parents receive free materials and program is free.

Part One: Stages of Labor and The Amazing Talents of a Newborn
Part Two: Newborn Sleep, Reading Cues, and Soothing your Baby
Part Three: Exploring and Understanding Postpartum Depression
Part Four: Infant Development in Year One

Our next program begins Wednesday July 7, 2021!  Classes are July 7th, July 14, July 21 and July 28 from 7-8:30pm via Zoom.  Register here https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/PrenatalParenting
