This class is the equivalent of Understanding Fatherhood but built with the understanding that families and support systems are all special and unique. This class is for those who support the birth parent during pregnancy and postpartum - partner, support person, father, mother, dad, mom, boyfriend, girlfriend, wife, husband, co-parent, grandparent, friend, family member, female and/or male nurturer, mother figures, and anyone that wants to understand the importance of supporting the birth parent in the pregnancy and postpartum period.

In this one time class, you will learn about supporting the birth person during pregnancy and childbirth, in the early weeks of recovery after birth, postpartum health, and be able to offer support. Education will be provided on getting the laboring birth parent to the hospital, care for the birth parent and newborn during the hospital stay, and the first few weeks of care and safety of the new baby at home.
