Preparing for the arrival of a new baby involves making numerous decisions, including which prenatal classes to attend. With so many options available, it’s essential to choose classes that provide practical skills and hands-on experience to support you through pregnancy, childbirth, and early parenthood. At Push, we understand the importance of interactive learning and offer a range of hands-on workshops tailored to meet the needs of expectant parents. In this blog post, we’ll help you navigate the selection process by highlighting the essential workshops you should consider taking.

Traditional prenatal classes often focus on delivering information through lectures and presentations, which may not fully prepare expectant parents for the realities of pregnancy and parenthood. Hands-on workshops offer a more immersive and practical approach, allowing participants to engage actively and gain confidence in their abilities. Here are the essential workshops you should consider:

  1. Birth Preparation with Your Partner:
    Prepare for childbirth together by participating in a birth preparation workshop. Learn about the stages of labor, pain management techniques, and how your partner can provide essential support during childbirth.
  2. Infant Care Basics:
    Gain practical skills in newborn care, including diapering, bathing, swaddling, and soothing techniques. This workshop will equip you with the knowledge and confidence to care for your baby’s basic needs from day one.
  3. Breastfeeding Essentials:
    Receive personalized guidance and support from a lactation consultant on breastfeeding techniques and overcoming common challenges. Learn about proper latch, positioning, and managing breastfeeding concerns to establish a successful breastfeeding relationship with your baby.
  4. Expecting Dads Program:
    Designed specifically for fathers-to-be, this program provides practical information and support on navigating pregnancy, childbirth, and early parenthood. Topics may include partner support during labor, bonding with your baby, and adjusting to fatherhood.
  5. Infant CPR Basics:
    Gain confidence in responding to emergencies by learning the essentials of infant CPR. This private workshop covers basic CPR techniques and choking relief for infants, equipping parents and caregivers with life-saving skills in case of emergencies.

Choosing the right prenatal classes is an important step in preparing for parenthood. By selecting hands-on workshops that offer practical skills and immersive experiences, you can gain confidence and readiness for the journey ahead. At Push, our range of interactive workshops is designed to empower expectant parents with the knowledge and support they need to navigate pregnancy, childbirth, and early parenthood with confidence and ease. #PrenatalClasses #HandsOnWorkshops #ExpectantParents
