Dad cradles newborn girl

We can help the whole family get ready for your child's birth, including partners, siblings and grandparents.

In this free workshop, family members and caregivers will have the opportunity to participate in lots of hands-on learning, including how to hold, bottle-feed, diaper, swaddle, soothe, and provide a safe sleep environment for your baby. This class will give practical tips on how to:

  • Be involved during pregnancy
  • Be supportive during labor and throughout the postpartum period
  • Assist with breastfeeding

We will explore the changes that occur with becoming a parent and welcoming a new baby, and give useful tips for adjusting to these important roles.
