Before the Baby is Born

  • Develop a support system of family and friends that will be able to help you.
  • Take a childbirth class and choose a person to be your coach during labor.

After the Baby is Born

  • Talk to your pediatrician and read about when to introduce your baby to solid foods.
  • As soon as baby can crawl, baby-proof the house.
