During this class you will learn:
- Basics of baby care
- Bathing and skin care
- Safe Sleep
- Infant CPR
- Home safety
- Travel and car seat safety (good to know before buying a car seat)
- Challenges faced by a new family
*Class content is the same at both the Bronson Battle Creek and Kalamazoo locations, so you may take classes at either location.
*Baby Basics is meant for expectant parents, while Grandparents 101/Baby Basics is meant for expectant grandparents. They are the same class where you can sit and learn together with other parents and grandparents, but the registration information is different. Please encourage grandparents to sign up with you under the title "Grandparents 101/Baby Basics".
This class should be taken between the 28th and 38th week of pregnancy. We expect that each mom registered will bring a support person with her to class.
Medicaid is accepted and financial aid is available.
You are welcome to bring drinks or snacks to class.
You will have about a 45-60 minute lunch break. There are cafeterias at Bronson or you will have time to go out.
The class will be held in the basement of the Bronson Gilmore Center for Health Education
