Newborn Safety Education

Our Children’s Safety and Community Outreach program has partnered with Wiser Women’s Hospital to host newborn care and safety classes for expectant mothers. The classes aim to combat preventable injuries and infant mortality.

Classes focus on infant CPR, and also cover information on safe sleep environments, childproofing the home, and child passenger safety. Thirty minutes prior to each class, car seat technicians are available to meet parents car-side in the parking area to teach them how to properly install their car seats.

Classes are hosted quarterly in Wiser Women’s Hospital. For more information, call (601) 984-BABY (2229).
