Your sweet baby is soon here! Learn how to care for your newborn + how to breastfeed your baby + all the ins and outs of first time parenting.
This unique 3-in-1class for parents-to-be in Orange County was created after having supported hundreds of parents and realizing the importance of preparing parents-to-be for their new baby and their new lives as first time parents. Parents who prepare for new parenting are much more equipped to care for their babies, to understand how their baby communicate, their biological needs, support the new mother to decrease her chances of postpartum blues and depression and to navigate the journey of new parenthood with ease and confidence. With the Newborn and First Time Parenting Class, you'll learn what many parents wished they had known when they had their first baby.

- important ways your baby communicates with you
