Take Those First Steps With Us
We offer “First Steps” – childbirth and parenting classes, so you can be fully prepared when your new baby arrives! In a fun, interactive environment, you’ll receive helpful baby preparation information, parenting tips, and free baby items! We encourage participants to bring a supportive individual during each session. Snacks, drinks, and prizes are provided each week!
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.
