Taking your baby home and the first six weeks are exciting. Let us help you prepare!
This class will help new parents feel more confident, comfortable and prepared for the first six weeks of baby’s life. It’s also ideal for parents who are adopting a newborn. You’ll enjoy the hands-on stations to practice real-life scenarios, as well as great discussion that includes practical tips. Topics include: newborn appearance, senses and brain development, understanding baby’s communication cues, why babies cry and how to comfort them, feeding your baby, diapering, bathing, sleeping, keeping baby healthy and safe, and more! We recommend that you take this class in addition to the Childbirth Class.
