New Parent Program for Expectant and Adoptive Parents

Planning for a child in your near future?  The New Parent Program has been developed to assist you with this exciting, but sometimes overwhelming, life transition of having a baby or adopting a child, taking a leave from work, and/or returning to work. This program brings people together in a light and festive atmosphere to discuss both professional and personal concerns associated with having a baby or adopting a child.

Topics covered include: parental leave and returning to work, postpartum depression, breastfeeding, available benefits, and childcare support. Armed with new information, resources, and support, participants will feel better prepared to manage and balance their roles as working parents.
