Car Seat Safety Classes

Road injuries are the leading cause of preventable deaths and injuries to children in the U.S. 73% of car seats aren't used or installed correctly. 

Prior to admission to the hospital, we highly recommend that your car seat base be properly installed and inspected to facilitate taking your baby home safely.
