So far I have seen a lot of women who think a better support system and more education is needed in order to improve the lives of new babies and moms in the U.S.
Please read the entire question before you make a decision. I know it sounds crazy. I have actually done a lot of research on mandatory parenting classes. How do you feel about first time parents having to take a class during their pregnancy. These classes would cover basic things like nutrition, sleep, discipline, child development stages, and other basic parenting topics. They would not be a place for ideologies or beliefs.
These classes could take the form of a home visitation program where volunteers take a few families. Visiting them once a month and offering support and information. Home visitation programs have been proven to improve the life of the entire family.
Long question. What do you think?

Who would pay for these classes or visits? I'm a nursing student and this is something that we have discussed. I think it would be beneficial for most. Making it mandatory for ALL I don't agree with. I don't know how to separate who needs classes and who wouldn't. Tough question and even an tougher solution on how it would all work for the best.
