Carolina Kids Pediatrics offers free prenatal parenting classes on newborn care and orientations to our practice every two weeks. These classes are held in our office, and are led by one of our five pediatricians. Our lactation consultant, Jerrianne Webb, also offers brief breastfeeding classes on dates marked with an asterisk. Please contact us by signing up at the BOTTOM of this page, or call our office.
We look forward to meeting you soon!
We also offer periodic classes on other chronic disease management and healthy lifestyle topics. These classes are led by one of our pediatricians and are informal and interactive, with plenty of time for discussion and questions. To sign up for these classes, either call our office at (919) 881-9009 or send us a message through the patient portal (the sign up interface below is only for prenatal/breastfeeding classes). Upcoming classes on chronic disease management and healthy lifestyles for the summer of 2018 are listed below. The classes are held in the waiting room area of our office at 2605 Blue Ridge Road, Suite 100 in Raleigh. Classes are free, but you must sign up at least 3 days in advance to attend.

These classes are offered in combination with our physician-led prenatal education classes.
