These classes are open to ANY family considering infant adoption, no matter their placing agency. Even if you are well past this stage of life, we ask that you please share this info far and wide - we know there is a great need for this type of class and we'd love to see lots of prospective families. This one session class helps to prepare new parents for the care of their newborn during the first few weeks and months. Topics covered include infant bathing and dressing, infant communication through crying, feeding, when to call your child’s pediatrician and many more. The class will also focus on adoption specific issues such as induced lactation, post-placement supervision and post adoption depression. The class is facilitated by a Registered Nurse, with many years of NICU experience, as well as an Adoption Coordinator. You can also expect to hear testimonials from past adoptive parents.
