Breastfeeding Prep

A must for all first time parents. We will review how to get breastfeeding off to a good start, nutritional targets for mom and baby, options for feeding positions, ways to manage milk supply, medical issues that might affect breastfeeding, how to choose and use a pump, what to expect in preparing to go back to work, and more. Class is taught privately or as a group.

Develop your ideal hospital or birth center birth plan with the guidance and wisdom of an experienced perinatal specialist. Discussions will include options for medication, typical hospital and birth center procedures, labor and birth positions, and choices after birth. All participants will receive a customized birth plan after the class. Class is taught privately or as a group. The group class is on the 2nd Saturday of the month at 1:30pm.

Childbirth refresher

For families who already have gone through a full childbirth course with another pregnancy and wants a quick refresher or to create a different experience this time. We will review the basics of how to manage labor and know when it’s the best time to head to your birth place. This class does not incorporate birth plans, feeding or baby care, and you are encouraged to join those classes if you feel you need that extra support in creating a new experience in this pregnancy. Class is taught privately or as a group. The group class is on the 3rd Saturday of the month at 1:30pm.

Hypnosis for chilbirth

Private and personal, this class is only taught one on one to pregnant mothers and separately to their partners if needed. Issues where hypnosis is most helpful is when a mother would like to address some of her fears around birth and shift her subconscious in these areas, to overcome disappointments with difficult prior births, and to shift circumstances that might prevent the birth she wants such as placenta previa, pre-eclampsia, breech or other atypical presentations, pregnancy migraines, premature labor and bed-rest, as well as needle, doctor and hospital phobias. All hypnosis sessions are done via Skype, and a customized recording of the session will be sent to you afterwards.
