*This class is designed to benefit expectant parents. It is best if families take this class when the mother is 3-4 months pregnant. that way you will have more time to prepare your pets for the arrival of the new baby! It provides a checklist so that you can prepare your animals and yourselves for a change in the household dynamics. Because of new sounds, smells, and activities surrounding a new infant, pets may see newborns as competition, prey, or even a toy. This 1.75 hour workshop includes informational literature and opportunities to ask questions. This workshop is ideal for pregnant women and their immediate adult family members.
