Daddy Basics

Just for Dads or significant other only

As cases of COVID-19 increase across the U.S., Ascension Via Christi Hospital continues to aggressively respond to this evolving situation. Working with local and state public health officials, we are trying to limit the number of people in the hospital to further reduce patients', visitors' and associates' risk for exposure. As part of the comprehensive response to the novel coronavirus outbreak, we been directed to cancel all hospital-based education classes.

This class has been cancelled until further notice.

We apologize that we can not provide this class at the current time, but the health and safety of our providers, associates, patients and communities is our top priority.

Just for Dads (or mom's partner): Daddy Basics uses trained facilitators and "veteran" dads to cover topics such as:

  • Becoming a dad
  • Forming a new family
  • Caring for new moms
  • Safety issues
  • Preventing child abuse
  • Bonding
  • Balancing work and family
  • Forming a parenting team

This class also offers hands-on opportunities for new dads to become comfortable in caring for babies. Veteran dads will demonstrate activities such as:

  • Changing diapers
  • Feeding
  • Swaddling
  • Holding the baby and dealing with crying

If your class required payment, a refund will be given if a cancellation request is received 2 business days (48 hours) prior to the start of the class/program. A full refund will be given for any class cancelled by the site.
