New Parent Workshop Brings Community Together

A Free Workshop for New and Expectant Parents

Mother and Child Education Center, along with community partners, will host a free workshop for new and expectant parents.

Mother and Child Education Center, along with community partners, will host a free workshop for new and expectant parents on Saturday, April 20, 2024, from 2:30-4:30 pm at Rose City Park Presbyterian Church, 1907 NE 45th Avenue, Portland, OR 97213.

This workshop will cover a range of topics to help parents navigate the exciting journey of parenthood. From diaper changing tips, bathtime basics, postpartum planning, to car seat safety, instructors have you covered. The goal is to create opportunities for new and expecting parents to be introduced to a variety of hands-on education and resources at an in-person workshop event. Learn car seat safety from certified techs, how to use cloth diapers with PDX Diaper Bank, best safe sleep practices with OHSU's Tom Sargent Safety Center, and more! Meet other new parents, ask questions, and learn from experienced professionals.

This workshop is geared towards parents who are expecting or have a child 6 months or younger. Do not miss this opportunity to connect with others and gain valuable insights.

Mother and Child consistently offers zoom classes on childbirth, newborn care, and breastfeeding, in addition to in-person safe sleep and baby wearing one-on-one classes.

“Through conversations with parents, we realized there is a need for more hands-on classes,” said Program and Education Director Jessica Rengo. “We are excited to collaborate with our community partners to help fill this need for parents.”

If other community programs are interested in participating, please contact Jessica Rengo, or 503-249-5801.Registration is available online  or by contacting Mother & Child, 503-249-5801.
