Preparing for Baby Series, Fall 2020

Due to COVID-19, the Fall 2020 Series is being held virtually.   

Registration is required.

Being pregnant and becoming parents often feels like navigating 100 different options and even more opinions!  There are so many changes your body goes through and lots of new information to learn in a short period of time. This class helps cut through the extra (and unnecessary) noise. The Preparing for Baby series will help you sort through much of the information available for new parents and guide you in making the best decisions for your family. All Cornellians (faculty, staff, postdocs, and students) and their partners/support persons are welcome to attend, free of charge.
