New Parent Support Program
Monday - Friday: 7:30am - 4:30pm
The New Parent Support Program (NPSP) is a professional team of registered nurses and licensed clinicians who provide supportive and caring services to military families who are expecting and/or with children from birth to five years of age. Through a variety of voluntary programs, including home visits and classes, the NPSP helps families learn to cope with stress, isolation, post deployment reunions, and the everyday demands of parenthood.
WHAT IF WE’RE NOT NEW PARENTS?
WHAT IF THIS ISN’T OUR FIRST BABY?
BABY BOOT CAMP:
Baby Basics Boot Camp is a class that provides information on labor & delivery, postpartum, breast-feeding, bottle feeding, and safety. The class emphasizes the father’s involvement and includes interactive demonstrations of basic infant care, such as bathing, diapering, and soothing a crying baby. This class is provided to expectant parents (both couples & singles). Participants must register prior to attending the class by calling the NPSP Office.
INFANT MASSAGE CLASSES:
Infant Massage is an opportunity for parents to bond and communicate with their infants through touch. It can help to aid in infants' digestion and promote sleep. This class will give you an opportunity to gain a better understanding of your infant's cues and contribute to their growth and development.
Parenting classes are offered, utilizing evidence-based and family-focused programs, such as The Nurturing Parenting curriculum that is recognized internationally for enhancing self-worth, empathy, discipline, and empowerment. It embraces the importance of raising children with respect, compassion, and integrity, always keeping the well-being of children as the primary goal of parenting. Participants must register prior to attending the classes by calling the NPSP Office.
