Benefits of Parenting Classes

Benefits of Parenting Classes

by Pregnancy Care Center on December 17, 2019

When you’re expecting a child for the first time, the idea of becoming a parent can seem overwhelming at first.  Parenting is a unique experience that can bring great joy, but also challenges as well. A great way to prepare yourself for parenthood is by attending parenting classes that answer your questions and set you up for success.  Keep reading to learn some of the benefits of the free parenting classes that Pregnancy Care Center of Grants Pass offers, then give us a call at (541) 479-6264 to learn more and sign up for a class.

Learn How to Succeed

One of the best things that you can do for your child is to invest time before their birth to learn about what you can expect as a new parent.  Our parenting classes are taught by experts in the community including doctors, physical therapists and more, as well as others who have gone through the highs and the lows of figuring out parenting on their own.  They share their knowledge to empower you and give you the tools you need to succeed and thrive. Our classes not only cover pregnancy health and newborn care, but also important life skills, such as goal setting, home management tools, and budgeting.  Pregnancy Care Center of Grants Pass is dedicated to providing you with the support and knowledge you need to succeed as parents.

Build Your Community

One of the best resources parents have is a community of their peers, both new parents and experienced parents.  Our parenting classes are a great way to meet both: each class is led by experienced teachers and your fellow classmates are other expectant parents that have many of the same questions and stories that you have.  You can learn from each other, support each other, and navigate your pregnancies together with a group of like-minded individuals who can share in each other’s successes.

Material Support

A great benefit of the parenting classes offered at Pregnancy Care Center of Grants Pass is the material support that our Pathways program offers.  Anyone who participates in our Pathways program is able to receive maternity and baby items, such as diapers, wipes, clothing, and more.  

We work to equip you to parent, but we also know that parenthood is full of unknowns.  Many new parents think they need to have everything figured out before their child is born, but that’s not the case.  There will always be surprises to figure out, no matter how much you prepare. The best parents aren’t the ones that know everything; they’re the ones that do their best, no matter the circumstances. Having the community and material support that we’ve connected you with makes for a great start on your journey to parenthood.
