Beyond the Birth Day: What to Expect in the Immediate Postpartum



4:30 pm - 6:30 pm
140 East Hill Office Building

In this session we will discuss what to expect during the first few weeks after your baby's birth. We will cover evidence based information on infant sleep, newborn behavior, and maternal recovery from birth. This will be a lively and engaging class with group discussion on the needs and expectations of both babies and mothers, including suggestions for how to make sure that everyone is getting the care and support that they need.
