Prenatal Parenting Classes

It’s easy and normal for expectant parents to focus on prenatal care and the impending birth—but that’s only just the beginning and it’s equally important to prepare for what life will be like with your newborn.

During our prenatal parenting class, Dr. Child will work with you to develop skills and glean important knowledge that will help you navigate the early days with your newborn child and build a foundation for healthy parenting into the future.
