I remember when I found out that I was pregnant! The first thing that I did was research on what to expect for the next 9 months. There are some things though that are better off heard from someone else, like an obstetrician or a friend or someone who has gone through the experience themselves. As a new mom, all of the questions that I had while I was pregnant and when I had the baby are still all fresh in my mind. Also, I have questions on how to care for my baby when she grows up to be an infant then a toddler.
With all these in mind, I thought it best to create a workshop for the First Time Parents. This workshop series aims to help first time parents or even the “experienced-yet-need-refreshers” parents to help them to go through topics on pre-birth, delivery and new born care and toddler care. This is series that is brought to you by Manila Workshops, Medela Moms, Inc. and The Learning Basket.
The four part series will start with this workshop on June 1, 2013.
For this workshop, these are the topics that will be discussed:
What to Expect During your OB checkup
Cord Blood Banking
Yayas & Maintaining a Good Relationship with them
What you should know before hiring a Yaya
The other workshops will be announced separately.
