Newborn Care

Wouldn’t it be nice if babies came with instruction manuals?  In this class, we’ll teach you the information and skills you need to feel confident about caring for your newborn.  We’ll cover essential topics such as feeding, bathing, diapering, and when to call your physician.

Preparing for Childbirth

Few events are more exciting than the birth of your baby.  Get prepared by learning what to expect before, during, and after delivery.  Practice breathing and relaxation techniques to ease labor and delivery, and understand your options for managing labor and using a birthing coach for support.  Bring pillows or a mat as some of the exercises are performed on the floor.  Take this class during the last three months of pregnancy.
