Educational Sessions

Skill-Building Demonstrations

Hands-on learning is where it’s at! These interactive sessions are designed to teach you valuable skills you can take home and put into practice, like baby wearing, picking the perfect breast pump, and car seat safety. These demos can help you build confidence to handle life with a baby from day one.
