Newborn Care and Infant CPR

Omaha Birth & Babies and New View Training team up for this one day comprehensive new parenting seminar.

We are thrilled for you to begin planning for parenthood. So many families will plan to the tenth degree for their baby’s birth but sadly forget that after that wonderful birth comes the postpartum/newborn experience. They are now parents and need to take care of this tiny human who like they say…doesn’t come with an instruction manual. Let Omaha Birth & Babies Newborn Care and Infant CPR class give you that “manual”. Let us give you the knowledge, tips and tricks to being your baby’s “whisper”. This class will set you on the path to thriving as a new parent.

In the morning we will explore caring for your newborn through hands on demonstrations and dynamic material that is evidence based with the latest AAP and WHO recommendations. This class also comes with a free companion app that can be used on the go.

Curriculum used is from InJoy Health Services. InJoy’s curriculum has been around for 30 years and is used in 80% of US hospitals with childbirth services.
