You're Not Alone: The Benefit of Joining a Parenting Group
Human beings are social creatures. We turn to other people to share our experiences in times of joy and in times of challenge. We seek guidance, instruction, and support when we are unsure of our next steps. Joining a parenting group is a great way to get answers to all of your parenting questions.
Benefit #1: Advice You Can Trust
New parents can feel stressed out by all of the experiences that come their way. Rather than turning to the Internet, a parenting club can provide advice based on real world experiences of other parents. At one time or another, every parent will face questions like when is a fever a concern? What is the best way to support holistic wellness in a busy family? How can I get my baby to sleep? Meeting with a parenting group under the guidance of a family wellness professional can help new parents make holistic choices for the health of the entire family.
Benefit #2: Breastfeeding Support
In order to successfully breastfeed, many new mothers need breastfeeding support. The benefits of breastfeeding infants include increased natural resistance to infections, lower risk of asthma and allergies, and fewer digestive problems. Many mothers who make the decision to breastfeed struggle with lactation issues. A support group can provide guidance, suggestions, and hands-on help.
Benefit #3: Guidance Even Before the Birth
A parenting group can be valuable for expectant parents as well as new parents. Expectant parents make critically important decisions before the babies arrive such as preparing for a home or hospital birth, choosing a midwife or doula, and preparing for baby's homecoming. Just staying comfortable during pregnancy can be a challenge. Learning from others can help new parents make informed decisions.
