Infants are wonderful little blessings, but they don’t come with an instruction manual. Any time that you can take advantage of learning opportunities for a newborn, it’s a chance you shouldn’t pass up. Our team at Momease helps by offering a variety of parenting classes in Washington, DC.

We work with a wide variety of students to prepare them for the many challenges and opportunities that come with parenthood. Whether you’re an expecting mother or a practicing baby nurse, you can count on our team to help you understand key facts and learn the skills you need to feel confident about childcare.

Our classes cover several topics, ranging from 101-style basics to life-saving emergency techniques. In an ideal world, you’ll only need to know the fun stuff — but you’ll also know how to handle the unexpected.

The skills you learn with us aren’t just a one-time advantage, either. Even if you aren’t a baby nurse dealing with bundles of joy every day, you’ll be able to help the children in your life whenever they need it. From your child’s future siblings to friends, family members, and other connections who might have a newborn on their hands in the future, you can be the go-to source of support with our team’s help.
