The Baby Care Basics class covers a variety of topics such as diapering, feeding, bathing and soothing baby. Parents will feel more confident and ready to take home their newest family member.
Breastfeeding: Health Benefits for Mom and Baby
Taught by a certified lactation professional, this class will help parents make informed decisions about feeding their baby. This class covers the health benefits of breastfeeding for mom and baby, comfort latch and positioning techniques and receive guidance on using a breast pump. In addition, parents can learn about resources for support and assistance, strategies for working moms and other tips for success. Both parents are encouraged to attend.
