During this virtual class, expectant parents will explore the “Understanding
Your Newborn” Student Handbook which will be mailed to you. Topics
covered during this 3 hour virtual meeting will include newborn characteristics
and behavior, sleep and feeding patterns, diapering and bathing demonstrations,
comforting techniques, baby safety, when to call the doctor, transitioning
to your new role as a parent, and a Q&A session. You will be asked
to use a doll or rolled blanket as your “baby” while practicing
hands on exercises as the instructor walks you through the skills. You
will also be provided with access to an informative
mobile app that will be a useful resource for new parents during the first months
after baby arrives.
You must register online to secure your spot in class. After which, we
will email you an invitation to a Zoom meeting for the class date and time.
