Prepare for early parenthood through this engaging, hands-on Newborn Care class, a prenatal class to help you learn to care for newborns up to six weeks of age. Using a doll model, you will practice the basics of bathing, diapering, swaddling, umbilical cord and circumcision care, colic holds, and gas relief techniques. You will learn proven techniques to soothe your crying baby, how to determine what is normal adjustment and what is not, the essentials of car seat safety, and more.
You should complete your classes by about one month before your due date (earlier for twins). On the day of class, bring a pen, water and snacks.
