Samaritan North Lincoln Hospital offers prenatal parenting classes
Women who are pregnant or have recently given birth are invited to a nine-week attachment-based parenting class that will be held at Samaritan Early Learning Center in Lincoln City on Mondays beginning April 4. The class will be taught by clinical psychologist Jennifer Cooper, PhD.
According to Cooper, research has shown that the attachment-based parenting method helps to develop secure children who have healthier and happier relationships with their parents, solve problems on their own, get along better with others and have higher self-esteem.
“This class is designed to give your child the best possible start in life and to give parents the tools and tips they need to fully enjoy the parenting experience,” Cooper said. “You will learn valuable parenting skills to help your family be physically and emotionally healthy.”
The class runs from 4 to 6 p.m. April 4 through June 6, with a break on Memorial Day. Each class will include a healthy dinner and free child care. The cost is $30, and scholarships are available.
