The Baby Basics Project is an in-hospital education class for new parents. The curriculum was developed to guide and assist health care professionals in educating new parents. This project has been designed with Roy’s Adaptation Model of Nursing to help new parents achieve successful adaption to parenthood. The postpartum period is a challenging transitional time. Short hospital stays and a large amount of education information leaves insufficient time to address new parent’s learning needs effectively. After delivery, new parents need more consistent in-hospital professional support to provide them with information and assist with their adaption to parenthood which the Baby Basics Project addresses.
