Event description

Description

This class is offered the third Saturday morning of each month pending holidays. The men gather support group style in a classroom and discuss becoming a dad. Veteran dads who have previously attended the class bring their little ones to the class after birth and talk about delivery, adapting to adding to their family, differences in opinions about parenting, helping mom after they went home, and taking care of baby as well. We have several safety items for visual aids and recommended ages you may need them. Veteran dads may allow you to hold their baby during class. You will see these dads handle their baby solo without mom. Male Nursing staff facilitate the class and offer suggestions about newborn care, supporting mom to reduce postpartum depression, and helping with newborn to promote breastfeeding for mom. We prefer men only in the class. However, there is a breastfeeding class offered at the same time if mom wants to attend. Dads are welcome in the breastfeeding class as well.
