Prenatal Parenting

Becoming a new parent is exciting and challenging. Together we’ll learn what to expect – from welcoming your baby to first steps. Expecting moms and dads are invited to a supportive and educational group program on preparing for the transition from pregnancy to parenthood. This class does not replace hospital childbirth preparation classes.

Topics include:

  • Pregnancy and parenting adjustment
  • Sociocultural myths of pregnancy and parenthood
  • Parent-child bonding and attachment
  • Infant crying, feeding, and sleeping
  • Newborn and infant development
  • Prenatal mental health
  • Building support and community resources

Parents receive free materials. Program is free and light snacks are included.

Prenatal Parenting is a 6-session course that meets on Wednesday evenings and is offered three times per year.
