Find New Parent Classes

Learn the best practices and tips for caring for your baby from leading specialists. Many of our new parent classes are free.

Becoming a new parent can come with a lot of stress — there’s no doubt about it. If you find yourself feeling a bit overwhelmed, know that it’s completely normal for your feelings of excitement to be met with feelings of anxiety. Maybe you’re feeling a little stressed or maybe you just want to brush up on the latest baby care techniques. Either way, we’ve got you covered with our classes that help guide you on caring for your baby. These classes, many of which are free, walk you through all aspects of baby care step by step, from tips on breastfeeding to best practices for keeping your baby safe.

All of our classes are led by specialists in their field, which include pediatricians with Norton Children’s Medical Group. When you take one of our new parent classes, you can expect us to break down the essentials for you in a way that’s easy to understand — with patience and compassion — so you can continue to focus on what’s most important: your baby, yourself and your family.

Benefits of New Parent Classes

In addition to getting the latest pediatrician-approved techniques on taking care of your baby, our classes will leave you feeling educated and empowered. Our classes can help you better understand your child’s development and even start to build a support network with our team of pediatricians and other new parents who are in the same stage of life as you are — asking the same types of questions and sharing the same passion for being a great parent to your little ones.

Below you can find a list of our current new parent classes. Find the classes that are best for you and fit in with your schedule. Many classes are available in person or online.
