The First 48:
A Postpartum & Newborn Care Class
The first 48 hours after delivery entails a huge transition emotionally, physically, and socially. In addition, there are all the anxieties of trying to take care of a new little human.
In the one hour Zoom class, we will be answering the questions: "What is my body doing?" "What is safe sleep?" "What does feeding look and feel like?" and more.
Maggie is a Certified Newborn Care Specialist through Newborn Care Solutions and a Postpartum Doula through the International Placenta and Postpartum Association (IPPA). Maggie has been helping families make the transition into parenthood for over six years.
You will receive:
Step-by-step instructions on swaddling and baby wearing
A "Building Your Nursery" Check List
A guide to postpartum and baby care
A guide to perineum care
A packing list for the hospital/birth center
A copy of The First 48 PowerPoint for your reference.
The classes are about an hour long with a break in the middle.
The first half covers the postpartum journey and the second half covers newborn care.
The class is $75. If you were referred by a midwife, your class may be included with their package.
