Description

Week 5 of our Guide to Childbirth class focuses on baby care and bonding during the first 3 months. Taught by postpartum doula, Lauren Franzen.

Topics covered:

  • what to expect in the early days
  • basic child development topics – infant development and how to respond appropriately to baby’s cues
  • practical use knowledge – how to change a diaper & how, why and when to swaddle a baby
  • sleep safety – where and how should infants sleep?

In the case of a rollback in the City of Chicago or State of Illinois reopening phases where we can no longer safely hold class in-person, or if a class cancellation due to in-class covid exposure is necessary, class will move to a virtual format. There are no refunds.
