Beyond the Basics: Comprehensive Childbirth Education Class
Beyond the Basics is designed to be an extension of what you probably learned in the standard hospital childbirth classes. Catered to your learning style, your needs and your ideal birth, this private childbirth education class is taught in the comfort of your home. We cover virtually everything you will need to know to have a informed pregnancy, birth, postpartum and breastfeeding or formula-feeding experience. Some topics that are included are labor comfort measures, medical versus non-medical labor inductions, birth interventions, what to expect when you arrive to the hospital, newborn baby care, breastfeeding, infant CPR and choking relief, etc. You will receive 8 hours of education. Your entire birth team is invited to learn and participate.
Audience: New parents, Expanding families, Adoptive parents.
Prenatal Lactation Consultation
Whether you are pregnant with your first baby or your third, every breastfeeding experience is different. A prenatal lactation consultation can increase your chances of success. We will discuss your goals for breastfeeding and how to explain your wishes with your family. We will create a breastfeeding care plan that will include techniques for pain-free latching, hold positions, breast and nipple care, and tips for returning to work or school. We will explore helpful lactation products and gear. Your plan will also include information about newborn nutrition and digestion. I cater this consultation to your needs, so whatever knowledge you crave; I am here to help. (45 minutes)
Child & Infant CPR Class for Parents
Learn CPR. Save your Child’s Life. I will teach you basic infant and child CPR and choking relief techniques so you will feel comfortable rendering aid if an emergency were to occur. The classes are held in your home and at your convenience. While it is my hope that you never have to give CPR, past clients have stated that having the knowledge is empowering. This is a non-certifying course. (If you need a certifying class visit the CPR page).
Audience: Parents, Grandparents, Extended family, Babysitter, Nanny.
Investment: $40 per person
