MedStar Southern Maryland Hospital Center Prenatal eClasses provide learners convenient access to lessons and resources whenever and wherever you are – on a computer or mobile device, in the safety and comfort of your own home – whenever it is convenient for you! The eClasses are available for 9 months after the date they are opened, which provides an opportunity to review breastfeeding and newborn information whenever needed, even after delivery. Each eClass includes engaging videos, 3D animations, learning activities, fun quizzes, helpful web links, downloadable PDFs, and a Parent’s Toolbox loaded with interactive tools. An audio library with soothing sounds and lullabies is also included. And if at any point you have any questions, the “Ask an Educator” feature allows you to contact a patient educator at the MedStar Southern Maryland Hospital Women and Newborns Center.
Understanding Your Newborn eClass
Since newborns don’t come with an instruction manual, consider the Understanding Your Newborn eClass. This interactive online course covers essential information for the first six weeks and beyond, including clear video examples of bathing, feeding and diapering, and lets you know when to call the doctor. You will also stay organized with a variety of helpful checklists and trackers! Allow 2-3 hours to complete.
