Postpartum Connection - single class

NOTE: This single class will be replaced by the Postpartum Connections - 3 week series beginning in March, 2023.  As we make the transition to the new course, please register for whichever option is most appropriate for you based on birth date of your baby (course is taken between baby's birth and 3 months of age).

Postpartum Connection: Cultivating connections and confidence in the postpartum period

This virtual, interactive class is offered 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. We hope to build social connections, while continuing 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

  • Adjustment to parenthood
