Ascension Saint Thomas Hospital Midtown Just About the Baby

Just About the Baby is a single session covering what to expect with your newborn and how to provide the best care in the first few weeks.

Welcome to Just About the Baby! This is an interactive class designed for expectant parents, grandparents, adopting/intended parents, nannies or anyone else needing a refresher on newborn care. We will discuss challenges you may face in the first few weeks at home with the new baby. Some of the topics include: safe sleep, feedings, soothing and general infant care.

We will practice hands-on skills including diapering, bathing and swaddling. If you register for an in-person class, we will provide the baby doll and supplies for you to borrow during your class; if you choose a VIRTUAL class, we ask that you have a few basic items on hand. Your instructor will include this info in an email prior to class.

*A support person is encouraged to attend class (no additional fee). The class fee includes the book, handouts and your session with your instructor.

Please feel free to contact us at The Family Learning Center (Monday-Friday 9 am-3 pm) at TheFamilyLearningCenter@ascension.org or 615-284-6455.
