Newborn Care is a comprehensive class that teaches couples what to expect with their newborn. Parents-to-be will be prepared for daily care: feeding, sleep, poops, diapering, circumcision and umbilical cord care, bathing, and dressing. You will learn what a healthy newborn looks like (there are lots of things that seem like they couldn't possibly be normal, but are!). We will also discuss temperament, crying and comforting techniques, behavior states, and understanding how a newborn communicates. Couples will understand when their baby needs to be seen by their health-care provider, how to choose a health-care provider, and that each baby and family is unique. The class is interactive and time is allotted for all questions!

The class is taught by Chanin McClurkin, RN, MSN, CPNP, a pediatric nurse practitioner (PNP). PNPs provide pediatric primary health care (newborn to age 18) including well-child examinations, developmental screening, and diagnosing and managing common and complex health/illness conditions. PNPs are recognized for their focus on health promotion, prevention of disease and disability and family-centered care. Chanin earned her master's degree in pediatric primary care at Vanderbilt University. She has over ten years experience with families of diverse cultural backgrounds, and children of diverse needs. Newborn care and care of the adolescent female are her special interests. Her patients love her holistic, compassionate approach to well-child care.
