Parents busy preparing to bring a new baby home need more than a crib. It’s also important to know how to safely carry babies in the car, put them to sleep and what to do in an emergency.

The Austin Diagnostic Clinic’s OB/GYN doctors are working with Austin Travis County EMS to offer a child safety class for new parents.

The three-hour class covers general guidelines and laws about passenger safety, how to make sure infants are safe when they sleep, and how to perform CPR or help your child if they choke.

Parents will also review how to install a car seat correctly.

The class is for expectant parents and those with children under a year old. The class is free, but space is limited.
