Mama Care, Baby Care


Becoming a parent is an exciting journey, filled with wonderful new experiences - and often a lot of questions.   Whether you are pregnant with your first baby or you're looking for a refresher, this interactive class will teach you all you need to know about caring for your new baby and for yourself in the early months following childbirth.

The following topics will be covered:

  • common newborn characteristics - what is normal, what is not

  • umbilical cord care and bathing

  • how to hold, swaddle, and comfort your newborn

  • hunger signs, breast and bottle feeding

  • sleep patterns 

  • general health and safety issues for both mom and baby

          AND MORE!

You'll also receive a valuable booklet full of information and resources to help see you through your baby's first 3 months.  Partners are encouraged to attend, but we ask that childcare is arranged for all children (with the exception of breastfeeding infants) so that we can ensure a distraction free learning environment. 

This class is held every other month.  The cost is $20 per person (though partners attend for free) and prepayment is required to reserve your seat and materials.  An invoice will be sent to you within a week of our receipt of your online registration.
