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!
