Your first day as a parent is a big one. That’s why we offer classes to educate you about the birthing process and help you prepare for the big day. These classes are interactive and fun to attend. They are offered in both a group or one-on-one setting. You may attend with a friend, partner, or another person who is important to you.
Learning about parenting
Parenting is filled with lots of uncertainty. Many people want to learn how to be good parents and raise a healthy, happy child. First Care Clinic’s parenting education and support programs can help you learn to parent your child in emotionally healthy ways and give you practical tips to help your child thrive.
Our Best Beginnings program helps to answer many of the questions you have and ease your anxiety. The program is designed to support you during pregnancy and through parenthood.
Best Beginnings offers over 90 different topics, such as Simple Infant Care, Going It Alone, Newborn Expectations, and so much more! With each session you attend, you earn vouchers which can be used in our Beginnings Boutique to acquire new baby and maternity items or personal items for mom and dad.
The Best Beginnings program is very flexible. You choose the classes you wish to take and classes are scheduled when it is convenient for you. You may choose to take any number of the available topics. You will be paired with a clinic nurse or a parenting advocate who will provide you with the support and resources you need during this time of transition and change. Together you will decide which lessons are most important and necessary.
These lessons are fun, motivating and practical.
