Silverton Together Presents Boot Camp for Dads-to-Be
Do you know someone who is about to become a new DAD? I’m sure they are wondering how this tiny miracle will affect their lives. Silverton Together would like to provide some insight to this question. We realize that new babies don’t come with owner manuals. Breast feeding, diaper changing and dealing with mom are all new experiences for first time fathers. At our Boot Camp for Dads-to-be workshop, we train first time fathers to be experienced dads.
Boot Camp for Dads is a 3 hour workshop taught by veteran dads who bring their own babies to give the dads-to-be a hands-on experience.
Our next Boot Camp is Thursday, June 30th from 6:30-8:30 pm in the conference rooms above the Silverton Hospital Birthing Center. The cost is only $15 per new dad. And for the Moms-to-be, we have a FREE massage, door prizes and informal question and answer session with the veteran moms. To register call 503-873-0405 or e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
