Beef up your man skills!

They say there’s no class to prepare you for becoming a father. We’d like to let you know that “they” don’t know what they’re talking about. It’s right here! The only problem is that if you attend, you might get so good at taking care of your newborn that there will be nothing left for mom to do!
(Totally kidding… there’s always more than enough poopy diapers to go around.)The hospital staff and doctors expect that you know what you are doing with this super fragile tiny human being. (Only offered virtually at this time)
The evidence shows that dads can play a huge role in preparing for baby, supporting mom through pregnancy and labor, and caring for their offspring. Just a few of the many rewards for being actively involved in this process are stronger attachment to baby, a better relationship with mom, and the chance to win man points at every turn.
Becoming a father is a huge life change, with a massive increase in responsibility, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have some fun while learning how to get there. Come meet other soon-to-be dads in this 3-hour virtual class and get the real scoop from someone who’s been deep in the trenches of fatherhood and lived to tell the tale.
Finding out you are pregnant can be a very exciting and overwhelming time. Depending on how things go, this transition can either be highly stressful or quite peaceful. For your sanity, you need the right information, sensible expectations, and the caring support of someone who gets it.

In spite of the amount of research and technology that goes into car seats, only 41% of those in use are installed and harnessed correctly. This is why we encourage all parents to dedicate some time and energy to learning the best practices for keeping their little ones safe on the road. (Only offered virtually at this time)
Our Car Seat Installation and Education is a one-on-one session tailored specifically to your vehicles, your car seats, and your life. Together we will evaluate the different options for how and where to install your car seats, and we will discuss, demonstrate, and practice proper harnessing. Our goal is not just to install a car seat for you, but to teach you how to keep your child safe. Every car seat has adjustments that must be made to keep baby positioned correctly as he/she grows, and we intend for you to feel confident making these changes. Typically takes 90 minutes.

Education and consultations can be done in the the comfort of your home, virtually or at an office location in the northwest valley.
