A Class Just for You

Pregnancy is a time of change and new experiences. You experience feelings, both physical and emotional, that you may have never experienced before. It is a big change to all areas of your life. It is also a learning experience for you, your partner, and your family. To help you adjust to these factors there are educational classes offered in many areas including, childbirth, exercise during pregnancy and parenting. There are also classes to help others in your family such as grandparents and siblings.
