Free Classes

Prenatal Class
It is our goal to present you with the information you need to make informed decisions about your pregnancy, labor, and delivery. Classes are taught by a doula, and they cover material on infant CPR, comfort while pregnant, medical procedures, labor techniques, delivery options, nursing, and more! Clients are encouraged to bring their partner, a family member, or a friend with them to each class so that they have additional support during this learning process.

During each class there are also opportunities to earn points which can be redeemed on the last day of class in our Mommy and Me Store! Our Mommy and Me Store contains anything an expectant mom could want, including strollers, car seats, diapers, baby blankets, baby clothes, medical kits, and more!

Our classes take place in January, April, July, and October and run for 6 weeks. Please give us a call at (504) 227-9090 if you are interested in joining us for our next class!

(You must become a client of Community Center for Life to participate.)

Parenting Class

It is our desire to support you as well as your partner by providing parenting classes that will equip you to connect with your baby (or other children) in ways that will build a firm foundation of trust and love. We want to help you learn appropriate ways to correct, instruct, and set limits with your children. We hope to change your thinking from “Parenting is hard work” to “Parenting is heart work.” During our classes we will give you hands on strategies and practical applications for building a strong family.

If you are a new mom, or a mom who is tired, has had enough and doesn’t know what to do next, please consider joining us for our free parenting classes!

Call (504) 227-9090 for more information on our upcoming classes or to enroll today!

 Post-Abortion Healing Class

Hope for Today…Healing after abortion…

We are available for emergency counseling after the trauma of abortion. Some women are paralyzed immediately by the loss and the intrusive procedure. Many are able to suppress their pain and grief for a long time, perhaps even years before they notice signs or symptoms of distress.

If you are experiencing the trauma of a past abortion, please call our abortion trauma line at (504) 734-5016.

We also offer post-abortion healing classes that allow women to bring their emotional scars from their experience “out of the dark past” into a true and lasting place of healing light.

To sign up for post-abortion healing class please contact us at (504) 227-9090.
