Postpartum Connection: Cultivating connections and confidence in the postpartum period
We are offering this new class with video communication technology through Mayo Clinic’s use of the Zoom platform. More information will be provided with your registration.
The purpose of this class is to provide support, encouragement, education, information and resources to help all families navigate through the transition into parenthood. The goal is to build social connections, receive emotional validation, and allow us to continue to partner with you through the joys and challenges that come with being a new parent. This time is facilitated by experienced registered nurses in Mayo Clinic’s OB department.
