If you are planning to breastfeed we recommend the Breastfeeding and Pumping 101 class. For first time expectant parents we also recommend the Infant Passenger Safety class and Baby Care Basics class.
Please note that only the series start date is listed below. The series will continue for the following three consecutive weeks (same day of week, same time). This is a total of four classes.
