Parent Essentials Lesson
Are you overwhelmed by all the information and advice on newborns? By combining different parenting philosophies and calming methods, our targeted lesson prepares you to handle parenthood like a pro. The Parent Essentials Lesson is designed for soon-to-be parents who need detailed information on infant care.
You'll gain safe and pertinent information on:
- Infant care, colic, sleep hygiene, feeding and babywearing safety

- Must-have clothing items and baby gear
- Diaper and feeding station(s) set-up
- Nursery and sleep station(s) set-up

I suggest you take this in-home birthing class between the weeks 34-38 of your pregnancy.
