We have transitioned our parenting and prenatal classes online!
All in-person pregnancy and parenting classes have been cancelled indefinitely in accordance with recommended guidelines from the Center for Disease Control (CDC) due to COVID-19 (coronavirus). We will let the community know when we are able to provide in-person services and classes. Catholic Charities’ Blessed Beginnings program is still helping with diapers and other baby items on an individual basis, but you must be enrolled in our program.
The Blessed Beginnings Pregnancy and Parenting Life Center is committed to the sanctity of human life, especially in its most vulnerable early stages. As a pro-life agency that honors every single human being with the dignity and respect they deserve, we are dedicated to providing the support and education young parents who choose life need to have happy, healthy babies and children. Our program focuses on the critical time period from the woman’s pregnancy through the age of five—a child’s most formative years.
Free Prenatal and Parenting Classes available in both English and Spanish.
Our classes are normally held in English and Spanish at the Moran Center (2615 Fannin Street, Houston, TX 77002 | MAP). These classes are also offered in collaboration with other nonprofit organizations and high schools in the Greater Houston Area. A wide variety of critical prenatal and parenting topics are covered, including post-partum physical care, bonding and attachment, breastfeeding, sudden infant death syndrome, shaken baby syndrome, car seat safety, age-appropriate play, positive discipline, budgeting and much more!
Program participants may be eligible to receive baby items such as diapers, bottles, clothes, cribs, car seats and age-appropriate learning toys.
Currently are not providing pregnancy test due to COVID-19.
Can’t make one of our set classes? No worries, we are here to provide support for you individually. We know that ongoing parental support is essential, so we can help you find the resources you need, and provide helpful parenting tips.
Pregnant women, dads-to-be and parents of children under the age of five.
