Pregnancy can be a time of many questions. You may wonder what is normal, what labor and delivery will be like, and what to expect while parenting an infant. It can feel exciting and overwhelming. At Heartbeats, we offer free and confidential parenting classes that can help ease some of this uncertainty for moms and dads.  When you participate in parenting classes, you will have access to helpful information on a number of topics related to pregnancy and parenting. 

Topics include: what to expect in each trimester of your pregnancy, labor and delivery, prenatal nutrition, breastfeeding, newborn care and nutrition, bonding with your infant, and many more. The lessons will be tailored to your individual needs.

As an added benefit, with each lesson you successfully complete in parenting classes you will earn points that can be used at our on-site boutique.  These points can be used to purchase items such as baby clothes, diapers, wipes, bottles and newborn care products all at no cost to you!
