Designed for expectant parents, this class goes beyond the basics of newborn care. You'll learn tips and tricks to make the newborn days easier and more manageable. Our registered nurses will cover the following topics (and more), so you're better equipped to handle a new baby:
- Normal newborn characteristics and behavior
- When to call your healthcare provider if you think your baby is ill
- Feeding and comforting
- Baby safety
- Car seat safety (official car seat inspections will not be offered)
Please bring your prenatal book "Gift of Motherhood" which you received during your first obstetric appointment. This book will be used during the class. The book can be accessed online. You may also bring snacks/drinks as desired Arrive 10 minutes early to allow time for parking.
Registration fee includes both you and a partner. You are encouraged to register for classes early to reserve your spot (classes fill quickly), but should not attend until after 24 weeks. Individual circumstances can vary.
If class is full please call the New Life Education Office at (608) 775-6878.
