Prepare for Your Birth & Beyond

Your birth experience class
This class will aid in the discovery of you and your partner’s communication style, expectations, and understanding about the medical decision-making options available to you. We created a unique approach to envisioning your birth experience which assists in setting healthy expectations for your desired birth. You and your partner will gain a refined understanding of the anatomy and physiology of childbirth, as well as explore relaxation methods and comfort techniques that aim to prepare you for a healthy, pleasant, and successful birth. We look forward to meeting you!

Bringing Home Baby

Your baby experience class
This class is the beginning of your journey of a lifetime of decisions you have the opportunity to make with and for your family. Our goal is to help you make informed and empowered choices to ensure that you feel joy throughout your postpartum experience. This journey is yours and there is no right or wrong in parenting, only what is right for you. 
 
As much as you may have expected to spend your days and nights holding, feeding, changing and loving your little one, you may not have expected the need to care for yourself as well. Throughout this class we prepare and create the kind of postpartum experience that you will happily remember for the rest of your life. We will envision your ideal fourth trimester and prepare for your experience by helping you understand the process and navigate through what choices fit best for your unique needs. We will equip you with tools and ultimately construct a fulfilling plan for you to share with your family and care providers. 

After Maternity Leave

Returning to work class
Returning to work was created out of a passion for helping families adjust from the newborn experience in transition into this new season of life that includes a work schedule. 
 
Using a layered approach we focus on simple yet productive tasks that you can start in pregnancy and continue through the first 6 weeks postpartum. We give you a step-by-step action plan that allows you and your family to embrace the fourth trimester which is a time focused on exploration, bonding and rest. This will give you the peace of mind that you are well on your way to a transition back to work which is grounded in grace, flexibility and balance.

With respect to all choices available we do our best to increase your confidence in feeding and nursing your baby by combating social myths with biological facts. We will use simple and effective training techniques and give you the tools and resources you need to make informed decisions to reach your unit goals.
