The choice to parent can be a difficult one, but it’s important to remember that you’re not alone on this journey. Miami Valley Women’s Center is here to help! We provide free resources and education that are designed to empower both men and women to be the best parents possible, and as you learn, you’ll earn Baby Bucks along the way that can be traded in for things like a crib, car seat, or other items you’ll need to care for your new baby!
Here are the five main benefits of attending our no-cost parenting classes at Miami Valley Women’s Center:
1. Understand prenatal development and prenatal care
If this is your first pregnancy, you may feel overwhelmed by information and facts about pregnancy, birth, and prenatal care. Our MOMs (Making Outstanding Mothers) class will help you prepare for each stage of your pregnancy and eventually birth.
You’ll meet regularly with a trained volunteer to learn everything you need to know about your pregnancy and growing baby.
2. Learn basics of newborn care
Do you feel anxious about the idea of being handed your newborn without any help or guidance? Thankfully, that will not be your reality.
Our parenting classes for men and women will teach you how to care for your newborn baby, what to expect, and how to handle things like illnesses, sleeping, and crying. When you complete one of our helpful parenting programs, you’ll feel empowered and ready to care for your child.
3. Gain important parenting skills and knowledge
Our classes aren’t solely focused on pregnancy and newborn skills. They also provide a holistic approach to parenting, giving you skills and knowledge you’ll use for years to come. In both our MOMs and DADs (Developing Awesome Dads) programs, we will tackle parenting skills, important information about child development, and how to teach through play and interaction.
4. Develop important relationship and decision-making skills
In addition to gaining helpful insight into pregnancy and parenting, we will also provide valuable insight into how to cultivate healthy relationship habits, make good decisions, manage negative emotions, and build a close-knit family unit.
5. Earn the items you’ll need for your baby
By participating in our parenting education programs, you’ll earn Baby Bucks that can be spent on items of your choice in our Baby Boutique. Our Baby Boutique has all brand-new items such as cribs, car seats, baby bathers, high chairs, diaper bags, clothing, and so much more!
