Bridges offers the following Classes:
- Childbirth Class: You may have been told birth is scary, excruciating, or something completely out of your control. You may have been told it’s a medical condition instead of a natural, biological process. You may have even been told you won’t be able to give birth without interventions like labor induction and pain medication. We are here to tell you the truth about your childbirth and help you create a birthing plan so that you are equipped to do this. And you can do this! It will be one of the most challenging and powerful things you will ever do. You will emerge a stronger and more confident woman — no matter how your birth unfolds. Seriously, you can do this and we can help!
- Newborn / Infant Care Class: (For those expecting or with little ones up to 1 month old). This class will help prepare you with the basics you will need to know to be comfortable as a parent. This includes information on how to safely hold your baby, change a diaper, and feed and bathe him/her. Let’s get the basics covered. In addition, more helpful information will be shared and you’ll have the opportunity to ask any questions you may have.
- Parenting 101: (For those who are pregnant and/or have a child up to age 2). What should I expect from my child? How old are they when they can begin understanding me? What are some good habits I should teach them? These and many more topics are common discussion questions that may come up in your Parenting 101 Class. This will be very helpful as you move from the infant stage to the toddler stage of parenting. Every question is welcome and we will do our best to give you a workable answer.
After completing 2 of the classes above, we’re happy to offer you a car seat/stroller combo. We have Pack ‘n Plays available as well! Give us a call to find out what you’re eligible to earn through our classes.
