Planning for Postpartum Success: The First Four Weeks with your Newborn

Friday, September 20, 2019, 1:00 AM

This is a great class for first-time parents and is 1 of the 3 classes we ask first-time parents to attend.We encourage you to attend it between 32 and 36 weeks of pregnancy.  This class covers care for baby and mother in the immediate post partum period,  basic newborn care (bathing, dressing, diapering) as well as logistical and emotional elements of the first few weeks of being new parents.  In addition to discussing the importance of a “babymoon,” recruiting help with household chores after baby arrives in order to make the transition easier, parents will be taught warning signs in various health areas including cord care, urination/bowel movements, skin care and more. Dads or partners are required to attend!
