As stated in the previous blog post, The Southern Tier PRC is committed to their mission of being a resource for the community. Becoming a parent is an important journey and we want to provide the support you may need along the way.
Our Life Center’s dedicated peer counselors can help you with emotional and educational support as well as making you aware of resources available. We can help you to prepare for your child or help in those early infancy and toddler years.
We offer a special program called Earn While You Learn. Not only does this program provide parenting lessons and information, you will be able to earn Baby Bucks while you do it. These Baby Bucks can then be used in our boutique to purchase items for your child. You will find items that include clothing (from newborn sizes to 5T), larger baby items (strollers, playpens, etc.) and much more!
Each person in this program will have an opportunity to work with a peer counselor to select a personalized plan for topics you would like to cover.
Examples of possible topics:
- what to expect in each trimester (we can cover all of them or you can select)
- emotions of pregnancy
- infant care
- caring for yourself
- nutrition, immunizations, illnesses
- changes as the child grows (including toilet training)
These are just a few of the possible topics. We want to help you be the best parent you can be.
If you haven’t stopped in to see us, please do. Our qualified peer-counselors will help you with the support you need. Our services are kept confidential. Contact us today for an appointment.
