Newborn Care Class

What are the first few hours like? When do I call the pediatrician? Why is my baby doing that? And what do I do now?! Get the answers you need, and gain the skills to feel empowered and confident with your brand new little one. This class is designed to teach you about safety and basics, with a dash of fun.

You will learn how to prepare for the safety of your newborn, what to expect, and signs of health or illness. Baby basics will be covered, such as bathing, diapering, cord care, and holding a newborn. We will also offer information about baby wearing, cloth diapering, soothing, and safe sleeping. In addition, we will provide resources and suggestions to keep you informed and connected as your baby continues to grow.

Please note that a scholarship fund is available for people who meet the income requirements.
