Newborn Care Class – Surviving and Thriving!
You’ve spent months eating right, exercising, preparing for the birth, and relishing in the first days of your baby’s arrival. You finally get to bring your sweet little one home! Now what???? Oops! Did you forget to read about that part? No worries! Just attend our class in your third trimester or even in your first weeks home, and we’ll send you home with essential newborn care skills and parenting strategies to help everyone in your family survive and thrive! Our approach to the first three months of life (what many of us call the 4th trimester) is a gentle and natural one. Topics covered in this class include newborn care essentials – diapering, bathing, and wearing your baby, as well as post-partum care tips for new parents. We’ll discuss infant behavior, sleep and feeding – they’re all related! In addition, we’ll give you practical and need-to-know tips for creating a safe and healthy nursery and baby-friendly home. You will come away feeling empowered and eager for your first weeks as new parents. And when you find yourself exhausted and up with a fussy baby and you just can’t seem to remember the tools we taught, you can refer back to the newborn care booklet we’ve created especially for this class.
Instructors: Betsy Bush and Sarah Mills
Cost: $50/couple (includes a take home resource binder)
