It doesn't have to be scary. We are here to prepare you for the basics, the unknowns, and everything in between.
WHAT DOES PARKGATE OFFER?
If you choose to keep your baby as opposed to adoption, it is important to be prepared for parenthood. At Parkgate, we currently offer Parenting Classes for moms and their partners! Learn about parenting, breastfeeding, labor and delivery, plus so much more.
This fall, Parkgate will be offering two new mentor programs! Find one on one support for new moms and new dads to give you guidance and support in this journey.
JOIN THE FUN
We offer a 9-week parenting class taught by Tanya Robertson and Virginia McCallum covering prenatal care, breastfeeding, labor & delivery, sleep & swaddle, Mother/ Baby care, nurse-night emergencies, and training up a child.
Each week new Moms and their partners get to shop in our Baby Boutique. At the end of the 9 weeks, Tanya and Virginia give the best baby showers!
Recently, groups from The Orchard in Tupelo, MS and Christ Church in New Albany, MS have provided car seats for the new parents to bring their baby home from the hospital.
These relationships don’t often end with that last meeting. They keep in touch and support these new Moms whenever they can. We are so grateful for these devoted volunteers who make this possible.
HI, I AM VIRGINIA!
I have been the organizing half of the Parkgate Parenting Class for a year and a half. I am married to Nathan and we have two sons, Benjamin and Jonathan. I live here in Tupelo, MS, where I teach middle school Bible classes to seventh and eighth graders at TCPS. My home church is Christ Community Church in New Albany, MS. Being part of Parkgate has been an incredible blessing to me… both the other Parkgate workers and the sweet mothers we teach have been a wonderful addition to my life.
HI, I AM CHANDLER!
I am married to Corey Smith and we have 2 children, Lydia and Levi. I am a registered nurse on a general pediatric unit and pediatric intensive care unit with nursery, postpartum and neonatal intensive care experience. We live in Saltillo, MS and are members of The Church at Trace Crossing in Tupelo, MS. I am so thankful to have this opportunity to share with the mothers at Parkgate so they can better care/advocate for themselves and their babies!
HI, I AM TANYA!
I have been teaching the Parenting Classes at Parkgate since their move to the new facility. I am a wife of 28 years to my husband Keith, and we have 4 grown children and 2 beautiful grandchildren. We are members of The Church at Trace Crossing. I have been a homeschooling mom for 15 years and have discovered a love for teaching literature while teaching junior and senior high students for the last 6 years. I have always had a passion for teaching and discipleship, and I have so enjoyed the opportunity to come alongside and encourage the young women in our classes. It is a gift to share a small part in their story, and to have the opportunity to prayerfully equip them as much as we can for their new journey.
