Feel more confident as you prepare to return home with your baby!
Basics of Infant Care - Virtual covers your baby's first hours in the hospital through their first few weeks at home. Topics include infant sleep, cues, and newborn development. It also covers the basics of infant care, car seat safety, and when to seek medical advice. New parents will be given tips and resources to support their new role and their recovery. Be better prepared for your homecoming so that you will fully enjoy your first weeks together.
An experienced infant care educator will meet with you virtually for this one evening session. During class, you can talk to an expert who can answer your questions in real time.
