Class 1: Childbirth Preparation Classes
More comprehensive than a hospital class, the goal of Carmel Blue’s childbirth preparation classes is to help first-time parents approach labor with confidence. We provide the information and skills to understand the fundamentals of birthing and craft a personalized plan for what will make them comfortable in Childbirth be it natural, medicated or anything in between.
Class 2: Breastfeeding Essentials
Everyone agrees that breastfeeding your baby yields great benefits both to baby and to Mom. Breastfeeding is a natural act, but many find it is a learned art that takes time and patience as it is a learned skill for both the Mom and the baby.
Class 3: Newborn Care
Join us and learn how to care for your newborn from those very first moments after birth, so that you can enter this new phase of your life confident and ready to begin!
Class 4: Infant/Child CPR and choking – emergency response training
Join us for a very important education for parents and non-parents alike. Learn preventive measures, how to detect a life threatening emergency for your baby or child and how to respond immediately.
We recommend expecting parents take all four core prenatal education classes (Childbirth Preparation, Breastfeeding Essentials, and Newborn Care and Infant CPR).*
