This training will prepare you to: Assist families in transitioning to this new chapter of family life with a newborn. Encourage family members in welcoming the newborn and adjusting to the new family structure. Support parents through a non-judgmental presence, validating their new challenges. Focus on the mother's needs so she may enjoy well-deserved respite. If you are interested in joining and becoming a new volunteer please inquire HERE. Questions?
