This is a prenatal newborn care class to help new families become familiar with the basics of infant care and feeding in the early days and weeks after birth.

Had a private session for c-section prep with the wonderful Meghan recently. She was very knowledgeable about the whole process and in touch with what was happening in local hospitals. She answered all of our questions about hospital stay, tips on breastfeeding, swaddling and diaper changing and more. My husband and I felt more at ease and prepared after meeting with Meghan and we would highly recommend Birth Day Presence!
