Parenting Classes

SPECIAL NOTE: Due to Covid-19 concerns, there have been several safety guidelines implemented for the programs conducted by the Women’s Life Center. Please call the Women’s Life Center for up to date information.

For more than 90 years, Newman Regional Health has helped bring babies into the world. For the staff of the Women’s Life Center, the miracle of new life never diminishes.

Mothers can enjoy ongoing support at the Parenting Center through the Weigh to Grow! class held Tuesday mornings and Thursday evenings. We also offer prenatal classes to help prepare the mother for her upcoming birth experience.
