If Babies Came With Instructions
Offered by holistic wellness center OmBalance, the new Conscious Parenting class aims to offer new moms a better understanding of how to manage that overwhelming fourth trimester (a.k.a. baby's first 40 days). Learn everything from newborn growth and development to soothing techniques to finding a pediatrician or nanny, with plenty of postpartum care for mom in the mix. Brush up on tiny things like clipping newborn nails, and the big stuff like CPR, too. Classes are taught by a certified doula and are held in Dallas (4311 Belmont Ave., Suite 100) and in Aledo and Burleson, just outside of Fort Worth. Cost is between $160 (for a one-day fast track session) and $500 (for private instruction). Register online.
