Event description

Description

Your baby won’t arrive with an instruction manual so we are here to help support and prepare families for welcoming their newborn. This course will provide families with essential information and skills to become more comfortable and confident in how to care for a new baby.

In this 3 hour class, taught by a Postpartum & Infant Care doula, you will explore the first hours, days and weeks after baby is born. Everything from what could their skin & body look like, how to recognize hunger cues, sooth a crying baby and what does a safe sleep space look like.

"We recently took a Newborn Essentials class. The course was short (about 3hours) and jamb packed with information to prepare mom & dad once they arrive home with baby. We learned a lot of useful information and would highly recommend the class to people who need a refresher or who are more visual learners! April was a great instructor who was passionate and knowledgeable. Thanks April!"

TOPICS INCLUDE:

Newborn Appearance, Newborn Procedures
Newborn Behaviour & Hunger Cues
Feeding Overview (breast & bottle)
Umbilical Cord Care
Bathing & Diapering
Comfort / Soothing

Registration includes attendance for two people, any pregnant person and their partner or other support person. We recommend taking this course when the pregnant person is anywhere between ~30-36 weeks pregnant but the information is perfect for anytime before baby has arrived.

For additional questions please don’t hesitate to contact us via email at info@edmontonareafamilydoulas.com or to alternatively register for the class and pay via EMT (email money transfer).
