Power Parenting

This is a one-day class that focuses on breastfeeding, newborn care, and infant CPR to help parents and loved ones prepare for their baby-to-be!

Breastfeeding is one of the most precious gifts a mother and baby can give to each other. The American Academy of Pediatrics recognizes breastfeeding as the best method of feeding and nurturing infants. At our Breastfeeding Class, our International Board Certified Lactation Consultant will assist soon-to-be moms and provide helpful information to make your breastfeeding experience as smooth as possible.

Our Newborn Care Class is taught by our Certified Happiest Baby Instructor and aligns with the Happiest Baby Association. The class covers tools to calm a crying, fussy baby by turning on their calming reflex, tips for practicing safe sleep and reducing the risk of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS), and much more on newborn care!

Infant CPR class teaches family and friends what they need to know in the event of a life-threatening emergency — for example, if your baby is choking or isn’t moving or breathing because of a fall or a near drowning. 

Please bring a newborn-sized baby doll or stuffed animal in order to practice techniques. In order to provide an optimal experience and ensure that other class participants may focus on our instructor, please do not bring small children.

$50 per couple. Only one registration is needed per couple. Scholarships are available. For scholarship information, call (386) 943-4489.
