In addition to this, it is highly recommended that NEW expectant parents take BOTH newborn classes IN ORDER to gain the most from the information provided. These classes are “Oh Baby! It's Your Birthday! and “Making Memories”.
It is requested that you bring your Partners in Care binder along to EVERY class. It will be referenced during the classes.
