Alert

7/13/20: Mayo Clinic’s Perinatal Education Program is still here for you providing education and support during this unprecedented time. After temporarily cancelling in-person classes due to COVID-19, we have now transitioned back to the classroom with some offerings. We are taking every precaution to ensure that the health and safety of our class participants and educators remain a top priority. New safety measures will be in place for in-person classes that include reduced class sizes, room arrangement that supports safe distancing, health screening of participants, and a requirement for everyone to wear a mask through the duration of the class. If you are currently registered for a class you will be contacted with further information. We will continue to offer the four eClasses available online: Understanding Birth, Understanding Breastfeeding, Understanding Infant and Child Safety, and Understanding Your Newborn.

Postpartum Connection

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.
“Parenthood may be exhausting, but it doesn't have to be lonely.” – Kate Metten

Class topics may include:

  • Adjustment to parenthood
  • Physical recovery and activity in early postpartum
  • Breast changes for those nursing and non-nursing
  • Self-care and stress reduction practices
  • Postpartum Mood Disorders
  • Birth control options and when to return to intimacy
  • Newborn baby patterns and cares
  • Becoming a new parent during difficult times

Please note, every topic is not covered weekly. Discussions will evolve around the needs of class participants.

This is a weekly class offering that requires a registration for each date that you are interested in joining.
