Soon to be Grandparents Class

This class provides the perfect update for new grandparents-to-be. Back to sleep? Tummy time? Car seat inspections? Today's parents have dozens of new products, new ideas and new "rules" that barely existed 30 years ago. Topics include changes in labor and delivery practices, and the latest recommendations for infant care and safety. Grandparents will also learn how to support the new parents and accept their decisions. Includes a tour of the OB unit.

She really missed her patients, labor and delivery and teaching Childbirth Education classes, so she has come back. Peggy has been certified as a Childbirth Educator since 1993. Peggy is also certified as a Happiest Baby On The Block Educator and will be teaching the Grandparent classes. She will draw upon her years of experience as a grandmother.
