Due to the coronavirus pandemic, we are hosting Newborn Care Class sessions online. Email Diane Sampson at des4v@virginia.edu for details.

Learn how to take care of your little one in this two-hour class. We'll cover the world of newborns — their sleeping and eating patterns, the importance of attachment and how to calm a fussy baby. We'll also review baby care basics such as:
