I believe that all parents should be educated and feel fully prepared when entering into parenthood. Consequently, I teach both private and group classes.
I teach Breastfeeding/Lactation classes to expecting parents. I go from the anatomy of the breasts/lactating chest through milk production and proper latch. I encourage both expectant parents/ nursing parent and support person to attend the class.
I also teach Newborn Care classes to expectant families. I go through all the basics such as swaddling, bathing and diapering, as well as what to expect with your newborn. I do this to help new families feel more informed and comfortable when welcoming their new family addition. My classes are not limited to expectant parents (birth or adoptive); Participants of that class can include grandparents and any other support person that will be helping with the care of the new baby.
*Note that I also touch on some post partum teaching in my Newborn class.
However I also conduct a more detailed and in depth Post Partum/Life After Pregnancy class.
Contact me directly if you are interested in my Newborn Care, Breastfeeding/Lactation or Post Partum Classes.
