Foundations of Parenting A Journey into Parenthood & Raising Incredible Infants!
Please join Rachel Wigglesworth as she partners with Teton Mammas at St. John's Health on the third Wednesday of every month to discuss “A Journey into Parenthood and Raising Incredible Infants”! Meeting topics will focus on life as a new parent and on raising an infant. Parents will have the opportunity to discuss both their own personal journey into parenthood as well as their thoughts and questions about caring for a baby.
Life as a new parent is filled with a mixture of emotions. Joy over the birth of a new baby can also be accompanied by exhaustion, confusion, challenging moods and difficulty bonding with baby. New parents suddenly find themselves adjusting to new family dynamics and a shift in self-identity. There is so much about being a new parent that no one ever talked about. On top of the personal transition into parenthood, parents have questions about how to care for their infant.
Parents are their baby’s first and most important teacher. During this monthly class, Parent Coach and Educator Rachel Wigglesworth, M.S., M.Ed., will engage parents in discussions about the joys and challenges of raising their incredible infants. Class topics will focus on both life as a new parent and on raising an infant. In this way parents will have the opportunity to discuss both their own personal journey into parenthood as well as their thoughts and questions about caring for a baby. Supporting parents through one of life’s greatest transitions will give them a foundation that can serve the entire family well beyond the stages of infancy.
