Daddy Boot Camp helps dads prepare for baby

- Preparing yourself for that little bundle of joy can be often an exciting but terrifying time,especially for Dads!

Through many hospitals, people can take "Daddy Boot Camp." This particular class was offered at St. Joe's Womens Hospital.

In a dads-only setting, the guys can talk about any and all issues. Things like bonding (which is different than moms), how to swaddle, how to recreate the womb to calm the infant and even shaken babies, and how to calm down before losing your temper.

The ability to talk about how you're feeling, what you're thinking and how to overcome fears and worries allows you to be less stressed and more confident once your little one is born.
