Knowing how to care for your newborn might sound intimidating, but this class will leave you feeling prepared to welcome a baby to your home!
Starting with what to expect in the hours and days after your baby is born, this class then moves on to the basic information of caring for your newborn after leaving the hospital with discussion of newborn reflexes, behavior and characteristics and hands-on practice of daily care. When you leave you will be able to confidently bathe, feed, diaper, swaddle, and so much more!

Attention expectant parents: As Bon Secours continues to monitor the latest novel coronavirus (COVID-19), our clinical leaders have implemented protocols that are consistent with CDC guidelines to ensure the quality and safety of the care we provide to our patients. At this time, we are restricting visitors. In line with these restrictions, children under the age of 12 will not be allowed in the hospital as visitors for any reason, including for birthing center tours or classes. In addition, people with signs and symptoms of illness (e.g., fever, cough, sore throat, body aches) are not permitted to visit. If you have any symptoms of illness, we ask that you refrain from attending any birthing classes at this time. Thank you for helping us keep our community safe.
