Alert

3/1/21: Mayo Clinic’s Perinatal Education Program is still here for you providing education and support during this unprecedented time with in-person classes, some virtual-interactive live classroom offerings on Zoom, and online eClass options. We are taking every precaution to ensure that the health and safety of our class participants and educators remain a top priority. New safety measures will be in place for in-person classes that include reduced class sizes, room arrangement that supports safe distancing, health screening of participants, and a requirement for everyone to wear a mask through the duration of the class. If you are currently registered for a class you will be contacted with further information. We will continue to offer the four eClasses available online if you choose not to take in-person classes: Understanding Birth, Understanding Breastfeeding, Understanding Infant and Child Safety, and Understanding Your Newborn.

Car Seat: Infant Passenger Safety Class

Did you know that four out of five car seats are installed incorrectly? This class focuses on car seat safety for infants through the first year of life. Join our certified educator and learn how to select a car seat, and how to secure the seat and your child in your car. The course utilizes discussion, video, written materials, sample seat belt systems and car seat demonstrations, including a hands-on small group activity. Anyone who transports infants is encouraged to attend. It is recommended to take this class prior to purchasing a car seat so many expectant parents take it early in pregnancy. However, if you have already purchased a car seat, please bring it with you to class.

Topics include:

  • Installation basics
  • Car seat selection
  • Avoiding common mistakes
  • Additional resources

All registered participants will receive a confirmation email within one hour after registering (be sure to check your e-mail junk folder if you don't see the e-mail in your inbox). Please contact us immediately (phone: 507/266-7473 or email: perinataleducation@mayo.edu) if you do not receive an email.
