Personalized classes held at your home or mine to focus on what you want to know most about pregnancy and delivery.
Topics include but are not limited to:
- baby wearing
-position movement during labor and pushing,
-what happens during inductions, c-sections, & VBACs.
-breastfeeding and new baby care are also available prior to and after baby
* A note about the breastfeeding instruction: I go over breastfeeding during the classes (before deliver) and AFTER delivery if the mom chooses. I provide several nursing pillows for you to try with your baby so you can make an informed decision before you buy a nursing pillow. In most cases I can meet you at the hospital to help with nursing or at your home. This visit is included in the $200 fee.
* Additional hours for class are available at a discounted rate after the first four (4) hour block, please contact me for price.
Not looking for a formal class? Only want to try out the baby carriers/wraps?
No problem, my baby carrier/wrap lending program is perfect.
The baby carriers/wraps are available to borrow before or after your baby comes. The expecting person/couple gets a different carrier/wrap to use for three - five days and then swaps them out for a new one. Some couples use the program prior to baby so they know what to ask for at their baby shower, others have used them after the baby came out to see which one felt best with their baby.
* Each carrier/wrap is steamed and washed in sensitive detergent after use.
