And things you need to know once you have given birth:


  • We cover what to expect of your baby in that first hour in the delivery room and first few weeks at home
  • Participants will practice swaddling and diaper changing using dolls, learn burping positions, umbilical cord care, circumcision care and bathing of your baby.
  • Breastfeeding and other feeding options are discussed.
