New Dads Class

This class is designed to promote soon-to-be Dad’s to ask questions about their upcoming births.  In this guys-only setting, Dad’s can ask questions that they might otherwise avoid when in other classes with their partners and get straight answers in terms that Dad’s can understand.  It is a comfortable mix of academics and conversation to deliver learning with real-life experience. Class taught by Tim Lynch, dad of four and husband of experienced doula and childbirth educator, Tracie Lynch.
