PPLD and Nurse Family Partnership are partnering to present this 6-week series that invites expecting parents to attend to learn about topics related to pregnancy, labor & delivery, and the first six weeks following birth. Each week features a different topic. Community professionals present information and are available to answer questions.
The Prenatal sessions take place on Zoom on Wednesdays at 12 p.m. – 1 p.m. starting April 7, 2021. Presenters are available from 1 – 1:30 p.m. to answer additional questions.
To learn more about the series and the individual sessions, please visit ppld.org/whats-new/prenatal-series. Registration is required; however, each session has an individual registration so expecting and new parents can select the topics that most interest them.
