Caregiving comes in many shapes, and can last a lifetime. Sometimes caregivers are celebrated for their accomplishments and yet in many ways pregnancy and childrearing leaves people feeling isolated, confused, and overwhelmed.
Here you can take classes that focus on motherhood, fatherhood, and family from an interdisciplinary perspective. Topics include some of the most basic things people should know about themselves from a procreative standpoint including biology, sociology, history, global perspectives, and the art of motherhood.
Classes are targeted towards those thinking of becoming pregnant, those going through IVF, or who are thinking of adopting, new mothers and fathers, and individuals seeking a deeper understanding of the significant role mothers have played in society, and the challenges they have faced throughout history, and continue to face today.
The Educated Mother is a division of the School of M.O.M.; pioneered by Martha Joy Rose for the Museum of Motherhood.
