Expectant Dad’s Class
Expectant fathers enjoy an informal, hands-on class that provides practical information and a real boost of confidence about handling the baby's impending arrival.
Participants connect with other expectant dads, and also have the opportunity to talk with a “veteran dad” who has been through the class and brings his infant with him to the class. Dads-to-be get to hear directly from the new dad about his experience—and practice diapering, swaddling, soothing, and burping the baby.
What Dad’s Class Attendees Say…
Daniel and Jonathan did a great job walking through all of the expectant dads on a variety of topics from diaper changing to fathers mental well being. Finally some instruction for fathers. I highly recommend taking the time to go through this course if you are a expecting dad! (see original Yelp review)

I just took the expectant dads class with Dr. Jonathan Marquez, and boy am I glad I did! I feel so much more prepared and equipped with helpful resources to navigate the rest of my wife’s pregnancy and beyond. This class is a must for expectant fathers. It helped me understand what I did not yet know (which was a lot), and then gave me the answers to those questions as well. It was practical, informative, but not in an overwhelming way. I especially loved that they had a veteran dad come in and speak to us about he and his wife’s pregnancy and postpartum experience 5 months out from his daughter being born. It felt really nice to be in community with other expectant fathers, not feeling alone in the process. It was a really positive and supportive experience. (See original Yelp review)

Took Dr. Singley and Dr. Marquez Expectant Dads Class and loved it. They went over everything from changing diapers, to suggestions for your hospital bag, swaddling, having a birth plan, interviewing pediatricians, etc…. tons of helpful and useful information for new dads. One of my favorite things about the class was going over questions that you would want to discuss with your partner, basically a “postpartum game plan”, it was super helpful because there were a bunch of questions that I didn’t even think to ask or consider.
The class was more than what I expected. Highly recommended for new dads! (See original Yelp review)
