Pregnancy to New Baby: Healthy Beginnings

Health Education Prenatal Classes


Dadvice – Newborn Care Videos

My name is David and I am a new dad. Being a first time parent can seem impossible at times, but I’m here to let you know, you will survive and you will thrive. There is so much I’ve learned along this journey, and there are things that had I known, it would have made it a little easier. That’s why I’ve created this video series “Dadvice”; because I wanted to share my experience and help the new parents of the world.

Remember, every baby is different and no experience is the same, but as long as you do your best, you will figure out what works for you and your baby.
