Mother/Baby Development (Ongoing)
Christiana Hospital campus
4755 Ogletown-Stanton Road, Newark, DE 19718 directions
New mothers who have already delivered with babies up to 10 weeks old are invited to four free Mother/Baby Development sessions. Bring your baby and meet other mothers who share the same joys and, at times, the same frustrations, as you. Several topics will be open for discussion, including infant development, crying, communicating with your baby and dealing with the lack of sleep. Breastfeeding questions will be answered by a certified lactation consultant.
This is a great opportunity to get encouragement and support from other new mothers who are going through the same thing that you are going through. Many of the moms who attend develop friendships that last beyond these first few weeks.
This class is free for four sessions only. No registration needed.
After attending this class, most mothers register for Mother/Baby Development 2 & 3.
Please note: no children (besides baby) are permitted to attend the class. The class is not offered on holidays or snow days.
