Navigating the ins and outs of newborn care can feel like a minefield, particularly at a time when families are feeling quite depleted. This class aims to demystify caring for your newest family member and arm you with the knowledge to feel ready for the challenges to come. A signature CHB workshop, it offers tools to support the creation of realistic parenting goals and how to meet the tangible needs of your newborn in their first weeks. Aside from essential newborn care, we will also discuss what to expect with newborn development, feeding and sleep patterns, ideal nursery set-up, necessary baby gear and more.

Class covers but is not limited to:

+The transition to life outside the womb for your infant and what to expect in the first hours 

+Immediate post-labor and delivery procedures

+Infant behavior and appearance

+Infant feeding habits and identifying feeding cues

+Infant sleep patterns

+Infant bathing, diapering, swaddling and soothing 

+When to bring in support from a pediatrician or lactation consultant

+Building a postpartum support team

+Postpartum recovery
