Classes for New Parents

Calling all new moms and second-time Moms!

The JCC is offering two new, amazing classes you won’t want to miss. Being a new mom (or a 2nd time mom) is wonderful, yet can be confusing, exhausting and sometimes isolating. It is helpful to learn and share with other women to help you through your journey. That is the purpose of these classes: to allay fears, answer questions, and connect to a great group of moms and babies. Both classes are led by Melinda Velez, a social worker and mother of four. For more information, please contact Anne Liss Johnson at 203.322.6541, or

Topics to be covered:
• Sleep deprivation
• Baby wellness
• Isolation
• Changes in your marital relationship
• Loss of identity
• Schedules
• Baby-proofing
• To work or not to work?
• Getting your body back
