Boot Camp for New Dads
Saint Joseph Hospital
Boot Camp for New Dads is a one-session workshop and is led by men for men. In this session, you will be oriented to the unique aspects of new fatherhood by the experts - new fathers and their two to four month old babies. Topics include: gatekeeper phenomenon; troubleshooter's guide to crying babies; dad's toolbox; caring for new moms; birth and bonding; what to expect postpartum; working/family balance; your role as protector. You will have the opportunity to hold and care for real babies who are two to four months old (in our in-person class only)! This class should be taken during the last trimester of the pregnancy and is offered virtually and in-person. Please verify when registering. All visitors are required to wear a mask while in the hospital per Denver County Guidelines.
We also offer independent online class options as well.
Saint Joseph Hospital is located on 19th and Downing. We offer complementary valet parking (closes at 9:30pm) or free parking garage to our patients and guests.
In the event of bad weather (such as a snowstorm), an email will be sent out notifying you regarding class cancellation or you can call The Lactation and Education Center voicemail at 303-812-4640 one hour prior to the start of your class.
If you cancel or change your registration prior to five business days before class begins, your registration fee will be refunded or transferred to another class. No refunds or transfers will be given after this time. If you miss your scheduled class, we are unable to refund or transfer funds.
We regret that in rare instances, classes may be canceled if we do not reach a minimum number of registrations. A full refund will be given if we must cancel your class.
Please note that email and phone inquiries will only be answered during our office hours, Monday through Friday from 9am to 4pm.
