St. Mary's, UE offering financial preparedness class for new parents

Posted: Updated:

Welcoming a new baby brings a lot of joy to families, but it can also bring many questions about finances.

Preparing for the expenses of the first few months of life, costs for daycare, saving for college, and the overall costs of raising a child can leave parents feeling stressed.

That's why St. Mary's Hospital for Women & Children and the University of Evansville are teaming up to offer a financial preparedness class for new and expectant parents, whether they are having their first child or welcoming another baby to the family.

The class is set for Wednesday, January 22 from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m. in the St. Mary's Gift Conference Room, located just off the lobby of the Hospital for Women and Children.

Dr. Yasser Alhenawi, Assistant Professor of Finance at the University of Evansville, will address topics including:

  • Household financial planning
  • Taxes and insurance
  • Resources available for those needing assistance

The class is free, but registration is required. To reserve a spot, go to and click the "Class or Event" tab, or call Terry Cooper, Personal Birth Consultant, at (812) 485-6016.
