Baby Care, 2 hours, $125 per couple
Each of our birthing classes are offered by Nurse Jackie Chapman RN, a lactation consultant, childbirth specialist & Certified BLS/CPR/AED instructor with over 40 years experience. Her classes are held weekly at the Birthing Center of NY, located at 6700 3rd Avenue, in the heart of South Brooklyn.
Nurse Jackie Says, “Now babies now come with instructions!” Learn the tips, tricks and techniques on how to keep your baby healthy – a must for any new mother!
Nurse Jackie encourages parents to bring their older children along to the baby care classes so that she can teach them how to be involved with the baby and thus have the older child not feel left out. This also helps with the bonding between the two and will lessen the possible feelings of resentment.
