Congratulations on adding to your family! This moment is likely filled with emotions, new questions and perhaps feeling like you are navigating uncharted waters. You might be experiencing physical changes, shifts to your mental health and wellbeing, and even transitions within your relationships. 
The Preparing for Baby Series is meant to help get your questions answered, offer moments of reflection, and help you get connected to people who are in a similar situation. Pregnancy and birth experts, along with Cornell work life and benefits professionals, will lead sessions that are thematic and relevant, offering many answers to typical questions related to pregnancy, birth, breastfeeding, parental leave, and much more. 
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.
