Congratulations on adding to your family! If you are looking for more information about all things pregnancy, labor/delivery and the postpartum period, and wanting to meet other expectant parents in our Cornell Community, register for the Preparing for Baby Series for Spring 2024.

The Preparing for Baby Series is meant to help answer your questions, offer moments of reflection, and help connect you to people who are experiencing a similar moment in time.

All those in our Cornell Community (faculty, staff, postdocs, and students) and their partners/support persons are welcome to attend. 

This series is offered via Zoom and is free of charge to participants. To learn more and to register, check out this link. For more information about the series, reach out to Ruth Merle-Doyle on the Work/Life team.
