Having a new baby is typically a wonderful mix of fun and frustration, confidence and confusion, feeling both overjoyed and overwhelmed,
Survival Parenting: Learning to Live With a Newborn is a relaxed, entertaining, empowering look at life with a newborn. You'll learn what you need to know about the care and capabilites of newborns to make it through those early, crazy days and weeks: diapering; bathing; cord care; sleep (theirs and yours); swaddling; recovering from childbirth (both physically and emotionally); dealing with family and visitors; keeping your relationships strong; and much, much more!
Classes are small and personal, so there’s plenty of time for questions, discussion, and individual instruction time.
You'll get the most out of Survival Parenting if you take it in the last trimester of your pregnancy, or shortly after your baby is born. If your baby has already been born, you're welcome to bring him or her with you.
Registration is $20 per individual, $30 per couple.
