UPDATE: Classes & Support Groups

For your safety during these uncertain times, some face-to-face classes and support groups may be cancelled or adapted to follow social distancing guidelines. In some cases, we may offer virtual alternatives. For example, we currently offer FREE online learning for all childbirth education classes. If you register for a class, we will notify you of any changes or cancellations using the email address or phone number you provide at registration. MidMichigan Health will offer a full refund if we cancel a class. In the event that you need to cancel, our cancellation and refund policy will apply.

Newborn Parenting Support Group - Alma

Whether someone is a first-time parent or a seasoned expert, caring for a newborn can be overwhelming. To help parents through the transition, MidMichigan Medical Center - Gratiot offers the Newborn Parenting Support Group.

Led by experienced childbirth educators, the Newborn Parenting Support Group covers a new topic each week. Discussions focus on the special needs of group members as they adjust to their baby and new role as parents.

Topics include infant nutrition, breastfeeding tips, mental and physical adjustments to new motherhood, fussy babies, sleep schedules, communicating with your baby (nonverbal communication, music, sign language), developmental milestones for the first year and physical/occupational/speech therapy as well as postpartum exercises and pelvic floor disorders.
