Having a baby affects more than the body. It impacts our mind, relationships and overall thoughts about ourselves. Whether you are a first-time parent or have been parenting for some time, having a baby is life changing in both joyful and challenging ways.
After Baby Wellness is a five-week program that helps you explore many of these changes alongside other parents. The program provides information, support and discussion on topics, including:
- Physical, emotional and relationship changes after delivery
- Postpartum nutrition
- Feeding baby – lactation and formula
- Postpartum depression and anxiety
- Community resources for mom and baby
This program is most relevant to mothers, and their partners, in the first year postpartum, although anyone is welcome. Babies may attend or Y Watch childcare is available. All parents get a FREE five-week YMCA membership ($60 value).
Please wear comfortable clothing to the first class, as we plan to be active.
Classes held Mondays, July 8 through Aug. 5.
Location: Healthy Living Center, Classroom B
