Baby Basics (NEW!)

Baby Basics is a NEW three-hour hands-on, interactive workshop that builds confidence as parents practice the basics of newborn care. Topics covered include diapering, swaddling, bathing, normal newborn appearance, baby communication, soothing techniques, sleeping strategies and newborn abilities.

The class is led by our own women's and children's professionals1, who will provide expectant parents with practical information on taking care of their baby in the first few months of life.

Plan to enroll in this class during the fifth month of pregnancy and attend during the seventh or eighth month.

Class fee: $55 per couple
Class fee includes your own newborn care kit (muslin swaddle blanket, thermometer and bulb syringe).

SPECIAL OFFER: THE BABY BUNDLE is a parenting double feature! Our expectant families will be able to take two of our parenting classes, Baby Basics and The Art & Science of Parenthood, back to back! There will be a one-hour intermission between classes during which you will have the opportunity to mingle with your peers. The Baby Bundle is offered once a month starting in April 2017.

Class fee: $85 per couple
