Pregnancy can be a time of many questions. You may wonder what is normal, what labor and delivery will be like, and what to expect while parenting an infant. It can be overwhelming. At Starting Point Pregnancy and Family Resource Center, we have a program that can help ease some of this uncertainty for moms and dads. It is called “Start Here.”  When you participate in Start Here, you will have access to helpful information on a number of topics related to pregnancy and parenting. 

Topics include: what to expect in each trimester of your pregnancy, labor and delivery, prenatal nutrition, breastfeeding, newborn care and nutrition, bonding with your infant, and many more. The lessons will be tailored to your individual needs.

As an added benefit, with each lesson you successfully complete in Start Here, you will earn points that can be used at our on-site “Bump & Beyond Boutique by Starting Point.”  These points can be used to purchase items such as baby clothes, diapers, and newborn care products; or bigger items like car seats and cribs.

This program is free and confidential.

What Can I Expect from the Classes:

Classes are 1 hour per week. During your class time you will have time to catch up with your advocate, discuss homework from the previous week, watch new lessons, discuss the topics, and shop in our baby boutique.

Call or Text the office. You will need to bring a valid ID and complete paperwork.

We hold classes on Mondays & Tuesdays 1-7pm, Wednesdays 1-5pm and Thursdays 10-2pm.  

Classes are designed for the parents so you can come individually or as a couple. Sometimes, grandparents helping raise grandchildren even enroll.  Reach out with all your questions and we will be sure to accomodate your family needs. 

We provide parenting classes for both women and men. You can take the class as a couple or individually. 

We are flexible and will work with you. Just be open and communicate all your scheduling needs.

You will still earn your points for the class, and you can work with a substitute advocate. You are also welcome to come in and shop.

You earn Points for showing up on time, completing homework and actively participating in class. Not to mention certain community activites that you complete like Dr. visits, job interviews/training and even WIC appointments.

We keep track of your attendance each week and will print certificates of completion for every six classes you complete.
