Childbirth Education is a must! The class that I teach has its foundation in CAPPA Childbirth Education principles, coupled with Evidence Based Birth. I strive to provide a very thorough curriculum that covers the final trimester through the early postpartum period. You will finish this class with the knowledge and tools that you need to enter into labor with confidence!
The value of meeting privately together in your home as we work through this class, allows for plenty of freedom to ask questions and practice positions and comfort measures that will help you cope with labor. Classtime is 6 hours and both partners are requested to be present. Options are one full day of class, covering the entirety of the curriculum or two separate classes lasting 3 hours each. Cost $300
Have you decided to breastfeed your baby?
Many new moms have lots of questions about breastfeeding but don't think to ask them until they have a hungry baby in their arms! Do yourself a great favor and spend 2 hours with me talking about all things breastfeeding. We will cover the importance of a good latch, the benefits of colostrum, different feeding positions, baby-led feeding, support groups, pumps and so much more! After taking this class with me, you will feel confident for those early breastfeeding days as well as the months ahead! Cost $150
Breastfeeding Consultation Visits
Often, once you are home with your new baby, breastfeeding questions and concerns can arise. I offer private consultations in your home so that you can continue to breastfeed your baby with confidence. Cost $120
Many, many new parents are handed a tiny newborn and realize that they really have no idea what to do next. While much of parenting is intuitive, there are definitely a lot of things that you need to know before going home with that tiny little one. In this very interactive class, we will cover topics such as "Handling your Newborn," "Why Babies Cry & Comfort Techniques," " Newborn Hunger Cues", "Bathing", "Diapering", "Bowel & Bladder Functions", "Newborn Screenings" and so much more! Cost $150
Once you are home and getting to know your baby, many parents want to have someone to come into their home and observe or help with a few of those "firsts" that they learned in the Newborn Class. Rather than a full postpartum visit, they prefer a consultation with me to make sure they are doing all they can for their new little one. I provide families with a private, in-home consultations as needed. Cost $120
