Mother Baby Hour

Mother and Baby

Mother Baby Hour is a time for moms and their babies to get together to ask questions, express concerns, learn about resources and share stories.

A Community Educator facilitates the groups and offers a weekly topic (such as sleeping, feeding or traveling with baby). Join us as early as the first week after your baby is born.

To register online, please visit the online class registration page and select the Mother Baby Hour group you will be attending or call the Women's Health Education Department at (608)417-8446.
