Dover-Foxcroft, ME- Mayo Regional Hospital and Penquis Maine Families announce they will host Boot Camp for New Dads on Saturday, April 5, from 9:00 am – 12:00 pm at a new location, Mayo Regional Hospital in the Sebec Conference Room.

New babies don’t come with owner’s manuals. Lots of first time fathers have questions. How do I hold, feed, talk to, or play with a baby? Boot Camp for New Dads offers first time fathers-to-be a chance to talk with experienced dads who bring their own babies. This workshop is designed for dads-to-be that are in the last trimester of pregnancy. “We hope that each participant will leave more confident in their ability to be a great dad,” said Denise Trafton, Residential Services Director, Penquis. The conference room is located in the Resource Center at the back of the hospital. There is a parking lot across the street from the Resource Center on Dwelley Ave. Breakfast items will be provided.

To register for the class or for more information please contact Denise Trafton with Maine Families at 974-2488 or This workshop is sponsored by Penquis Maine Families and Mayo Regional Hospital and funded by Maine Department of Health and Human Services.
