Spotlight Video Details:
Parenting a baby is filled with everything – with joy, with frustration, guilt and uncertainty. And that’s OK. It’s normal. Parenting is a roller coaster. Your support means we are here to help families, where they are and when they need us! Together, we can keep kids safe and families strong.
The cornerstone of a healthy family is the relationship between parent and baby. All families deserve education and support to ensure their connection with their baby is strong and healthy. Strong connections = safe kids.

Kim is also an ICEA and Lamaze® International certified childbirth educator. Kim is passionate about her work with new families. As Kim says:
“Effective parenting is one of the best ways to improve the world, and parenting begins with pregnancy and birth. I firmly believe in using any fear and anxiety we might have to examine our choices and beliefs, and find ways of birthing and parenting that are just right for us. When I think about the power of preparing for labor, birth, and parenthood, Maya Angelou sums it up best: ‘When you know better, you do better.'”
