I’m beginning another series of classes for new and expectant parents for Natural Baby. I love teaching these six classes. We focus on the physiology of infants and mothers; learning the biology of postpartum and development rather than a checklist of tasks.

Classes are 20.00/student or you may register for the entire series for 80.00/student. If attending with your partner, you will still only pay for one space. Babies are welcome in class.
Class 1 (Jan. 22, 6pm-7:30pm): Try to See It My Way: “Why is my baby crying? Is this normal? I don’t understand what she is trying to say!” Come learn about infant communication and cues. We’ll also discuss birth bonding, attachment theory, soothing skills, and finding balance. Plus lots of tricks for calm parenting. Babywearing and swaddling lessons included! This class is most appropriate for expectant families and new parents with babies less than 6 months old.
Class 2 (Jan. 29, 6pm-7:30pm): Breastfeeding: In our breastfeeding class, we’ll learn about the biology of breastfeeding. We’ll discuss common issues, finding help through community resources, and returning to work. This class is most appropriate for expectant families and new parents with babies less than 3 months old.
Class 3 (Feb. 5, 6pm-7:30pm): Now What? Parenting the First Six Weeks: The first six weeks can feel like a whirlwind of emotions and the learning curve may seem steep. Learn what to expect during the postpartum. For mom, we’ll discuss physical changes, healing from birth, and creating a postpartum plan. For baby, we’ll look at common issues such as jaundice and gastric changes. And we’ll learn about baby care basics, newborn procedures at the hospital, and vaccine choices. This class is most appropriate for expectant families and new parents with babies less than six weeks old.
Class 4 (Feb. 12, 6pm-7:30pm): Sleeping Like A Baby: *Yawn* Who came up with the phrase “sleeping like a baby” anyway? Learn about the physiology of infant sleep.

This class is most appropriate for expectant families and parents of babies less than 9 months old.
Class 5 (Feb. 19, 6pm-7:30pm): Having A Baby Without Breaking the Bank: Having a baby does not have to put a giant hole in your wallet!

We’ll talk about creating a lean and green baby registry. What do you really need to raise a baby? This class is most appropriate for expectant families and parents of babies less than six months old.
Class 6 (Feb. 26, 6pm-7:30pm): Parenting the First Year: Parents have many decisions to make the first year.
