New Parents & Infants: The Fourth Trimester

 

Our TLC New Parents & Infants Class series is unique and unlike all other newborn classes. The curriculum focuses both on the development, behavior, and care of your new baby and also on the pivotal experiences of becoming a new parent.

• Expert guidance around baby-care skills, breast & bottle feeding, sleep, how to best support your baby’s development and learning, and so much more…

• The opportunity to discuss the experiences of becoming a new parent such as the inevitable physical and emotional changes, the possible shifts in your personal relationships, returning to work (or not), the importance of self-care, and so much more…

• A weekly TLC Newsletter with parent-friendly trusted resources to best prepare for the upcoming session topics.

 

This live class series is facilitated by an experienced perinatal nurse (and mother!). There will be ample time for personal questions and, of course, co-parents are most welcome.
