Why did you create NewbornCourse.com?

The founders realized that despite the availability of parenting books, blogs, and seminars, there was still a pervasive sense of discomfort and fear among expecting parents about their impending roles. They did a little digging (and some market research) and discovered that there was no single resource that housed all the information that these parents so desperately sought. Much to their mothers’ delight, these three guys—two brothers and a cousin—decided to take it upon themselves to create an all-inclusive, immersive course on pregnancy, birth, and the subsequent care of newborns and their mothers—something that didn’t exist yet on the internet. Thus, the NewbornCourse was born! Because Babies Don’t Come With A Manual

The Courses will give you a sense of confidence and prepare you for all of your interactions with your Doctors, professionals, family member’s friends and anyone else you may meet on this adventure.
