This class for first-time dads is designed to build your confidence and to prepare you for being a father. While most other childbirth classes encourage mom to bring dad (or another support person) with her, this class is different because it is for dads/men only.
Experienced, veteran dads from the Bronson Birth Place help teach you how to diaper, feed, and relate to your newborn. You will also learn about ways you can nurture and support both mother and baby.
Medicaid is accepted and financial aid is available.
*Class content is the same at both the Bronson Battle Creek and Kalamazoo locations. If you live or work near Battle Creek, or the dates and times work better for you, you may choose to take this class there (even if you plan to deliver your baby at Bronson Kalamazoo).
This class is taught by Dennis Cole and Shawn Davis, BA. You are welcome to bring drinks or snacks to class.
The class will be held in the basement of the Bronson Gilmore Center for Health Education, Classroom 5.
