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.
