Congratulations! Your baby’s having a baby!

Join Emerald Doula co-owner, experienced doula, babywearing consultant, and certified child passenger safety technician, Ashley Rankin Collins, for this two-hour online class is designed specifically for today’s modern grandparents.

You’ve put in the work of being a parent. Now, let’s get ready for the fun of grandparenting, together!

We’ll breakdown the generation gap, introduce to you to other grandparents in the class, and provide a refresher on the basics of infant care (it may have been some time since you’ve last swaddled, diapered, or bathed a new baby!).

Plus, we’ll give you the most up-to-date information and an overview about:

  • Current safe-sleep recommendations

  • Baby carrier basics and how to use them

  • Carseat Safety

  • Infant Feeding Basics (Breast and Bottle Feeding Support)

  • Common Terminology in today’s birth and parenting worlds

  • Ways you can support to your child as they transition into parenthood themselves!

Because this class is online, you do not have to be local to Durham, NC communities to take part!

But, you will need computer access, and ideally, video and microphone capabilities on your computer (so that you can be an active participant in the discussion!). Participants will be emailed a link via Zoom one week prior to the class date. Simply click the link to join the class.
