The New Father

About This Event

This class gives the father-to-be practical information aimed at increasing self confidence in handling the newborn and gaining insight into new baby behavior.

Facilitated by Pediatrician Michael Yamaguchi, MD, this casual, open environment fosters discussions regarding changing roles, work/family balance, and other challenges a new dad may experience. The class covers hands-on skills such as changing a diaper, soothing an infant, interpreting a baby’s cry, and the father’s role in breastfeeding.
