Newborn Care & Feeding Classes
Knowledge is Power
Join a class!
My newborn classes and feeding classes offer evidence-based and up-to-date information. Engaging and interactive classes ensure that you retain the information you need to know. Each student also receives a student handbook and parenting plan to take home for reference after the class ends!
This is the instructions your baby should come with!
Meet other expecting parents as you learn the basics of caring for a newborn. Safety, diapering, feeding options, swaddling, and newborn medical procedures are just some of the topics covered in this comprehensive hands-on newborn and feeding class!
Customized, private classes cover the same topics as a group class, but allow you the option to choose days and times that work better for you. Invite partners, siblings, and grandparents to come learn about your new addition alongside you, including up-to-date medical recommendations.
Online classes allow expecting parents from anywhere to participate in my comprehensive, evidence-based classes! Using Skype, we will cover the same topics as a group or private class from a distance at a convenient time for you. This is a great option for non-locals as well as parents on bed rest or experiencing other limitations.

Why should I take this class?
Compared to childbirth classes, a newborn care and feeding class can help prepare you for what to expect following your birth. Basic newborn care, breastfeeding, bottle-feeding, diapering, swaddling, parenting styles, safety, and soothing techniques are just some of the topics covered in a newborn care class.
Many expecting parents pour a lot of time into learning about pregnancy and birth, because it is such a momentous time in their lives. However, it’s important to prepare for what happens after birth just as much. Becoming a parent is a whole new identity. You will face multiple decisions, options, and choices when it comes to your new baby.
Expecting parents may be familiar with a birth plan, but what about a parenting plan? Your labor and birth will only last a relatively short while compared to your parenting experience overall. It’s important that co-parents are on the same page with how they intend to raise their child(ren) and what better way than to take a class and learn?
The classes I teach cover a broad range of newborn topics and feeding options. My hope is to present to you as many options as possible and to open a discussion among you and your partner.
In an effort to provide education and support to those who may not otherwise have the option, 10% of all revenue on education and support services goes directly to a scholarship fund.
If you are expecting, in need of education or support, and unable to afford these services, please contact me to see if a scholarship is available for you.
