Mother Infant Assessment Course Materials

This class is mandatory for The Birth Center clients. Learn how to care for both mom and baby during the first few days at home. Learn what is normal in a newborn, how to be sure baby is getting enough to eat, and the importance of rest to aid mom’s healing process. The goal of this class is to help parents feel more prepared to take baby home after an early discharge. This class should be taken by 34 weeks.

This is an online only version. There is also an in person 1.5 hour class option. They are the same course with the same material. Only one is required.

This course is required for all Birth Center clients. Please watch the course video. Once the course is completed, please complete the quiz at the bottom of the page to confirm you participated.

We also want to invite you to join our private Facebook group for peer support. The Birth Center offers a private, mentor-led Facebook group, Birth Center Mamas. Join here.
