Information

This class helps mom & baby make the transition form the hospital to home.

The first and second classes prepare you for your baby's arrival, with instructions on how newborns look when delivered, how to bathe your baby, and how to care for the umbilical cord and circumcision. You will receive information about newborn jaundice and newborn laboratory tests. Learning how to choose a pediatric provider and how to determine when to call him or her is part of this class. Infant feeding is discussed as well as safety issues such as car seats and sleep positioning. Bring a doll for practice sessions on the first 2 nights.

The third class will cover care of mom after delivery. Discussion will include the importance of the new mother taking care of herself as well as her baby when they leave the hospital setting.

This is a three session class held on Mondays, August 3rd-17th from 5:30pm-7:30pm in room G303 at UnityPoint Health Methodist. Please plan on attending all 3 sessions when registering for this class.
