The Better Baby Class is the most comprehensive prenatal newborn prep class on the market. So many people have found their hospital-based newborn classes to be lacking, and we at OBC wanted to give you more. In this four-hour class, we cover everything you need to know from the moment your baby is born through the first two weeks of his or her life. You will leave class prepared to take care of your newborn; you’ll know how to get breastfeeding off to the right start and how to ease the recovery for the birthing mom; and your partner will have a concrete understanding of what they should be doing each step of the way and how best to support the family through these early days. The Better Baby Class teaches you not just how to diaper and swaddle your baby, but it will empower you to thrive as new parents. Class topics include:
Embracing the final days of pregnancy
Plans for when you’re in labor
What is the “fourth trimester”
The “Golden Hour” after birth
Benefits of skin-to-skin contact
