Preparing and Caring for Baby - New Brunswick

This class prepares new parents to care for their newborn. Babies do not come with instructions. We have designed this class to prepare new parents for the practical aspects of parenthood.

Safety, growth and development, bathing and feeding are some of the topics covered.

This class also includes information on car seat safety, shaken baby syndrome and how to childproof your home. We recommend that you take this class before your third trimester.

One day, 6-hour session. Includes a 45-minute lunch break. Offered once a month. Registration required. Scroll down to see fee.

*Canceled Through July 31

Out of an abundance of caution, our New Parent Education classes, Childbirth Experience, Preparing and Caring for Baby, Breastfeeding 101, and Maternity Tours are canceled through July 31. This is in the best interest and consideration of all expectant families. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

If your baby is due to arrive before we resume classes, we will be happy to email you information to guide you from your arrival in the hospital through delivering your baby. In addition, you may view the tutorial for the Childbirth Experience class free of charge through July 31, 2020. This evidence-based information is based on our course books and classroom resources. Please contact for details on how to access these resources.

We hope that you find this program beneficial. RWJUH is committed to the health and safety of all patients, visitors and staff. We appreciate your understanding.
