Parenting Education

Pregnancy and parenting are filled with lots of uncertainty. Bella Support Services offers a mentoring program where moms and/or dads are matched up with a mentor who will support them and be their teacher. Mentors are seasoned parents. Simply put, they meet you where you are on your journey through parenting. They will provide one on one lessons on topics like:

  • infant massage
  • first year milestones
  • healthy baby
  • infant nutrition
  • infant hygiene
  • potty training
  • healthy sibling relationships
  • safety
  • oral health
  • bonding
  • tantrums
  • toddler nutrition
  • baby & me

We also offer one on one consultation with a lactation counselor before and after delivery and information on strategies to effectively co-parent and parent alone. While learning, moms and/or dads will earn credit, which can be spent in our store, Molly’s BoutiqueMolly’s Boutique has items like diapers, wipes, clothing, baby shampoo, formula, and other hygiene items for parents. If you are in need of gas, bus tickets, food or housing, we can help connect you to other community resources too. Mentors will work with clients to schedule appointments around a mom or dad’s busy schedule.
