Impending fatherhood is exciting but can be a bit overwhelming
as well — especially for first-time dads. To help expecting pops
make a smooth transition into fatherhood, Cottage Hospital offers a
course in daddy boot camp. Participants will learn parenting
lessons from veteran dads (and babies); gain understanding about
the needs of new moms; and learn creative solutions to the unique
problems facing new fathers. The course is for men only; you attend
one session in the last trimester of pregnancy, then return as a
“veteran” for the second session (when baby is 2 to 3 months old)
to inspire and inform the next group of new dads. Classes take
place at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital. $5 suggested donation per
session. Call Steve at 708-6655 or visit
