Take Those First Steps With Us
Mosaic Health wants you to be fully prepared when your new baby arrives! That’s why we offer “First Steps,” a childbirth education and parenting class program. First Steps provides expecting and first-time parents helpful baby preparation information, life skills development opportunities, and free baby items. It is a free parenting class series. We encourage participants to bring a supportive individual to accompany them during each session.
All interested participants must have completed an initial consultation at Mosaic Health before registering for our childbirth and parenting classes. We recommend taking these classes during your 6th month of pregnancy. To register, contact us at 618.451.2002 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
