On Saturday, Oct. 17, St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center will hold Boot Camp for New Dads. This three-hour workshop helps expectant and first-time dads learn what it’s like to be a new dad. Veteran dads head the workshops and encourage honest discussions about lifestyle changes that may occur when the baby is born.
Boot Camp for New Dads enables new fathers to “hit the ground crawling” when their first baby arrives, and head in the right direction in forming a new family with mom. Topics include caring for mom and the new baby, working as a team, and calming a crying baby. Participants are encouraged to ask their own questions about the changes ahead and get hands-on experience caring for young babies.
The male-only workshop will take place from 9 a.m. to noon at St. Joseph’s Center for Education and Development at Park Central Mall (3115 N. Third Ave., Suite 132). Cost is $20, and pre-registration is required. Scholarships are available based on need. Enlist now by calling 877-602-4111.
