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.
Preparing for baby is more than attending childbirth class. Find out what to do with baby once he or she is here. Learn the basics of infant sleep, bathing, swaddling, feeding cues, diapering, baby-wearing, choosing non-toxic products and safety. Class is taught privately or as a group.
BIRTH PLAN WORKSHOP
Three non-judgmental, informative classes to help you create the birth you envision. Our evidence-based class focuses on both first pregnancies and experienced mothers who desire a better birth experience. The Lamaze Childbirth Preparation Series takes place over three weeks, for 2.5 hours each week. Our Lamaze Certified Instructor helps you learn about the benefits, risks and alternatives you have for options and comfort measures to ease your labor and delivery. Lamaze approaches birth as a normal biological process. Feel confident, supported and powerful to make decisions and navigate pregnancy, birth, and early parenthood. Lamaze Six Healthy Birth Practices are based on the latest research, and are the foundation of Lamaze childbirth education.Classes are taught privately or as a group. Spouses or one support person are welcome and encouraged to attend.
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.
