This 3 hour class is taught by our Certified RN Childbirth Educators. This hands on and interacive class gives new parents the opportunity to practice infant care skills like diapering and swaddling on our newborn sized dolls. The class will cover newborn appearance and behavior, safe handling, feeding, burping, SIDS prevention, safe sleep environments, car seats, and choosing a pediatrician. Popular infant products are discussed to help parents develop a critical eye and become knowledgable consumers. In the Infant CPR segment registrants will learn about and practice infant CPR by viewing the American Heart Association's Infant CPR Anytime video. Participants can choose to receive an Infant CPR Anytime kit to take home to own to share these lifesaving skills with all of their child's caregivers. (This class does not provide CPR certification for employers or daycare facilities). Room location will be emailed to particpants 48 hours prior to the class.
Parking is offered for a fee in the Main East campus garage at 330 Brookline Ave or in the Shaprio Clinical Center garage on Binney St.
