California Nurses Educational Institute 

Pregnancy is a time of change and new experiences. You experience feelings, both physical and emotional, that you may have never experienced before. It is a big change to all areas of your life. It is also a learning experience for you, your partner, and your family. To help you adjust to these factors there are educational classes offered in many areas including, childbirth, breastfeeding, and parenting. There are also classes to help others in your family such as grandparents and siblings. Classes include but not limited to: Childbirth Preparation, Breastfeeding, CPR, Wonder of the Human Body and Mind.

Pure Sex (Teen & Adults)

Many teens look for information about sex and sexuality from sources other than their parents. In fact, the number-one source for kids to get sex education is on the internet and from their friends—and that’s not the best place to get safe, value-centered sex information. Often their emotional involvement exceeds their maturity, and they’re left to navigate decisions about sexuality without a trustworthy guide. It’s vital to teach sexual integrity, self- worth and the dangers of multiple partners that can lead to STDs or unplanned pregnancy.
