Preparing for Fatherhood course w. Adapting to Love I Amsterdam

September 29 @ 10:00 am - 2:30 pm

A fun and important 2-day course for expecting-dads to feel empowered and prepared and meet other dads!
So you’re gonna be a dad…

Taught with my husband, Atish, we’ve designed this class as an opportunity for fathers to connect, learn more about how best to support your partner & stay connected in your relationship, ask any questions you have, prepare for transitions into parenthood, and practice some basic newborn care skills.

This is a 2-part workshop. We meet for 4.5 hours (lunch catered) on a Sunday, and then the following Friday we meet for 2.5 hours (dinner catered). The group goes out for beers together after the last session.

This class is designed for anyone who identifies as a father and that is expecting a baby or currently in the newborn stage.

Taught @ Geboortecentrum Cursuscentrum in Oud West (unless otherwise indicated)
