Prenatal Classes

These prenatal classes were created to give parents the tools, education, and options to help aid in the beautiful transition occurring in their lives. Choose any combination of classes. The class(es) are held in the comfort of your own home. Have fun with it- do snacks, mocktails, background music , invite other expecting friends– whatever will make you the most comfortable! The goal is to create an environment with full participation. I want you to ask any question you have and try different techniques without feeling put on the spot or uncomfortable in front of strangers.

I want your partner to feel comfortable and participate. Bringing home a new baby isn’t just about Mom and Baby. It’s about Partner and Baby. It’s about Mom, Partner, and Baby as a whole. We will talk about how to reconnect as a couple and how to involve partners in the whole transition from labor to after baby comes home.

While people may think these are for the “new parent”, they aren’t referring to first time parents. Each pregnancy is different. Each birth is different. Each child is different. You as a parent are always evolving and changing. Therefore, you become a new parent with each birth. For “experienced” parents, these classes may offer tips and options you weren’t aware of previously. Maybe you want to try breastfeeding this time. Maybe you didn’t know of different ways that could possibly help speed up recovery. Maybe you need a refresher on everything. Whatever your reason, you are welcome to any of these classes.
