The Birthsmarter Newborn Care class was developed to help you enter parenthood with confidence and understanding. Rest assured, this is not your typical Baby 101 course. Like our signature birth classes, our Newborn Care class raises the bar for infant care classes; so you can develop a sophisticated framework for responding to your newborn’s needs and improvise as your baby grows.
- Bonding with baby in the early days
- Why babies cry and how to respond to their needs
- Sleep for the whole family in weeks 0 - 12
- Bottle feeding
- Newborn appearance, hospital procedures, and cord care
- Stages of development and developmental movement
- Basic health and hygiene
- What baby gear you actually need and how to set up your home
- Choosing and communicating with your pediatrician
When you register for class you will receive access to an ever-growing library of on-demand Newborn Care videos. These cover instructional topics such as diaper changes and infant bath. You’ll be able to watch these videos ahead of time and bring questions to class so our time together is well spent! (You also get lifetime-access to the videos as well as all of Birthsmarter’s curated resources for infant development and family bonding).
This class is taught by Birthsmarter Educators Beth, Yoko, and / or Ashley.
Great as a standalone class, but we love to bundle with Postpartum Planning and Lactation (Not So) Basics for a comprehensive education! Book all three classes in one transaction for 10% off with the code BUNDLE. All classes include you + your support team.
In a world where it is difficult to keep sight of what is most important Birthsmarter aims to call our attention back to what is valuable. Do you notice that expectant parents spend more time choosing a stroller than they do a midwife or obstetrician? More time arranging their nursery than arranging comprehensive support for after the birth. As a business we have the power to convince you that pregnancy, birth, and the postnatal period are worth investing in. If we don’t, women and families suffer and you miss the opportunity to build an intentional foundation for your family; the foundation on which we’d like our society to rest.
Birthsmarter lives in the space where biology meets society, wisdom meets data, and empathy meets activism. We believe that transparency is the key to birth, babies, and business, that it is always worth investing in parents, and that together, we can change the world. Our unique birth and parenting classes offer expecting parents and their support team the information and practice that will enable them to think critically and improvise during high stakes moments. Our continuing education workshops empower health and wellness professionals to become trusted pillars of their perinatal community. We’re shaping the future, one birth at a time.
