New Dads Join Pregnancy Group Discussion

June 17, 2012, 10:03 PM by Michaela Read

New Dads Join Pregnancy Group Discussion
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

Having a child can be a life-changing experience. And for women in Sanford's Centering Pregnancy Program, they know it's nice to talk to someone who knows what you're going through.

"The women in our group are incredibly supportive. We all happen to be around the same age and a lot of us are having our first or second child," said Centering Pregnancy Program member Collette Manning.

The program brings expecting mothers together to share their experiences. But now that their children have been born, the other side of the family gets to bond on Father's Day.

"You hear about all these people from your wife and it's nice to meet everyone," new father Justin Manning said.

"The women got really close in our centering group and so it's nice to be able to share that time with the other half of your support system at home," Justin's wife, Collette Manning, said.

For some, it's not only the first time meeting other group members and their spouses, it's also their first time being a dad.

"It's a whole different thing when you have your own kid, totally different experience," Justin said.

It's an experience that may be new, but will never get old. 

The moms and dads both hope these types of get-togethers can occur more often in the future.
