SCARSDALE, N.Y. -- Expectant couples will learn about the emotional and practical aspects of becoming new parents in a new prenatal support course launching in Scarsdale.

The three-week course beginning Feb. 21 will be held at Over the Moon Music and More on Garth Road.

The objective is to educate soon-to-be parents about the journey ahead, while also enabling them to make new friends and establish a support community.

Couples will learn about the birthing process and gain insight in the class run by a social worker, birth doula and licensed massage therapist, and a lactation consultant.

“Nowadays, the traditional network of grandparents and parents is not always there to offer long-term support to new parents. Motherhood can be incredibly lonely at first, and being a new parent can be emotionally taxing. We will help provide these parents with coping mechanisms and a support network to aid them in the exciting journey ahead," said Jessica Seidel, a licensed, clinical social worker.

The course for couples with similar due dates will run Sundays, Feb. 21, 28 and March 6 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
