Baby Makes Three

The birth of a baby is a happy event, but you will likely have moments of uncertainty after you return home with your newborn. Our Baby Makes Three class is designed especially for first-time parents and will explore issues, including feeding, diapering, bathing, crying, sleep patterns, signs of illness and safety issues such as car seats.

Other issues covered include:

  • Newborn growth and development
  • Common child care problems
  • When to call a doctor
  • Returning to work

The class is led by a childbirth educator. A pediatrician may be available to answer questions and give an overview of key areas such as immunizations, choosing a pediatrician and what to expect from your baby's doctor.

This class is recommended during the last trimester of pregnancy; one 1.5-hour session is offered.

Cost: $20
Class fee includes an infant care book.
