New Dads and Prenatal Classes

We know that prenatal classes aren’t always at the top of the “fun” list for new dads. Images of charts, lectures and awkward birth videos come to mind.

We promise that this is a class for both of you – expectant new dads are respected as full participants, not just companions or observers. With each aspect of pregnancy, birth and postpartum we include your unique perspective and experience. In addition to the wealth of information and support, many men find our classes help build a sense of confidence and excitement, and feel more connected to their partner and baby.

It is only after a class has ended that we get the hugs and smiles from satisfied new dads who let us know that they hadn’t really wanted to come, but are So so glad that they did!
