Prepare for parenthood early by talking about what to expect with friends and family who already have children. They can recommend services such as childcare, medical care, parenting strategies, helpful books and other useful tips that you may not yet know about.
Obria Medical Clinics also offers parenting classes for mothers and fathers called Beginnings and the Dad Project. To find a Beginnings Program, call the Obria near you for a class schedule. We also have many community referrals. If you or someone you know needs more information, contact us by phone.
