'Baby 101' workshop offered to Douglas County parents
ROSEBURG, Ore. -- Bringing a new baby home can be scary. Now, a parenting program in Douglas County is working to give parents the tools they need.
The Take Root program offers free parenting support classes, including a "Baby 101" workshop.
Parents can learn things like why a baby might be crying and other information about infant care.
Workshop leaders say the program can be a big help for parents.
"People think because they have to go to parenting class or want to go to parenting class is because they feel like they are being a bad parent. It's actually the opposite; there's so many new things to learn out there," says Parent 101 educator and parent Lisa Austin.
You can attend the Baby 101 class this Friday from 6-8 p.m. at Mercy Medical Center in Roseburg.
