4 Classes To Take Before You Have Your Baby

Taking a prenatal class or two before baby arrives is something that I highly recommend.  And, nowadays with the online world growing by leaps and bounds, the options for online courses abound.  Today I’d love to share with you 4 of my favorite classes to take before your baby is born so that you are super-duper prepared.

One of my favorite things about these courses below is that they are all taught by experienced nurses.  As nurses, we are born to teach.  We teach our patients every single day, and I love love LOVE that we now have the opportunity to share that knowledge and experience with the world via the internet!

These courses are affordable, yet invaluable to your preparation for becoming a parent.  You can learn at your own pace in the comfort of your own home, and learn from the best.  I hope you take the time to learn as much as you can before your baby arrives.  You won’t regret it!

Here are 4 classes you should take before you have your baby…

Childbirth Class

The childbirth class by Hillary, fellow nurse and blogger, will give you the inside scoop to all things labor and delivery.  She has worked as a labor & delivery nurse for a long time and will teach you everything you need to know about your baby’s impending delivery.  Her courses are like a traditional prenatal course, except you can enjoy them at home while you are comfy on the couch. If you would like to learn about the labor process, your options during your delivery, and what to expect on your baby’s birthday then this childbirth class just might be for you.  

Breastfeeding Class

If you plan to breastfeed, then taking a class is imperative.  I suggest the breastfeeding courses offered by Lactation Link.  Lindsey from Lactation Link is a registered nurse and board-certified lactation consultant.  She offers three courses online ranging from breastfeeding basics, to pumping how-tos, to troubleshooting your feedings.  She will walk you through those first challenging days as a breastfeeding mama.  You can also attend the live classes that she hosts in Utah throughout the year.  See what these parents have to say about Lactation Link breastfeeding classes…

Sleep Training Class

One of the most commonly asked questions we hear from parents is how they’ll get sleep with a new baby at home &/or how to sleep train their baby.  Cara, a neonatal nurse, mother of 4, & infant sleep consultant, can teach you how to get your baby to sleep through the night and help you tackle common sleep regression and changes as baby grows.  Get a good nights sleep & feel rested, thanks to Cara’s newborn sleep courses.

Baby Care/Newborn Class

After working with thousands of newborns and new mommies and daddies, I decided to create my own baby care courses called The Mommy Masterclasses.  It’s important to learn about your labor & delivery, how to breastfeed and get good sleep, but it’s also important to learn as much as you can about how to care for this new little human.  That’s why I created The Mommy Masterclasses.  

In my courses, you’ll learn basic baby care, how to prepare to have your baby, what baby gear I recommend, and what to expect those first few days in the hospital.  Taking care of a new baby can seem daunting and overwhelming.  Be empowered with The Mommy Masterclasses and enjoy those first few days, weeks, and months as a new mommy.
