Thank you for your interest in our Transition to Parenthood class.
The Transition to Parenthood is a 2.5-hour class that equips expectant couples, and parents of infants and toddlers, with knowledge and confidence as they learn what to expect after having a baby. Through engaging presentations and exercises, couples that attend The Transition to Parenthood gain insight into the top 10 reasons why the transition to parenthood can be difficult, learn five ways to build friendship, explore the importance of dads involvement in baby’s care, and learn how the quality of their relationship impacts their baby’s care and development.
Research tells us that all couples experience some stress and struggles with the addition of a child. It also tells us, however, that couples that attend classes like the Transition to Parenthood feel better prepared. As a result, those couples experience far less depression, report greater happiness/satisfaction in their relationship, and engage in more positive interactions with their baby, which leads to healthier infant/child development.
The Transition to Parenthood is a fast-paced, fun, and informative class for couples that are interested in equipping themselves with relationship and parenting skills that will last a lifetime!
There is no better gift you can give your baby than a happy and healthy relationship, Register Today, space is limited!
