Memorial Hermann’s Fatherhood Initiative offers a 12-week course with separate education classes for mothers and fathers to learn co-parenting fundamentals. The fathers’ classes are designed to help fathers share experiences and learn skills to help each father be the best parent he can be. The mothers’ classes are designed for mothers to learn more about the benefits of co-parenting, share experiences, and gather tools to foster a good co-parenting relationship.

Children’s Memorial Hermann Hospital is committed to the 10-step program for successful breastfeeding, because we believe that is the best form of nutrition for your new baby. So we’ve developed a special 90-minute course that helps expectant parents learn proper breastfeeding techniques and better understand why they are so vital to the health of your new baby.
A new baby means new experiences and challenges for your family. We make sure you’re ready. This course provides the know-how and skills you’ll need to care for your infant and offers insight on how the new arrival can affect family dynamics.
It’s not just moms and dads, but siblings who are also changed by the arrival of a baby. That’s why Children’s Memorial Hermann Hospital holds special classes just for new brothers and sisters. They’ll learn ways to hold, diaper, burp and feed babies. And each child who attends gets a certificate showing he or she is ready to help mom and dad provide effective, loving care.
