NEW! Post-birth Planning Workshop

Did you make a birth plan? Have you thought about your post-birth plan? It takes approximately 10 hours per day to take care of a newborn. Where will the time come from? How will you manage to get it all done: meals, errands, laundry, cleaning? When do you sleep? And what about maintaining a healthy relationship with your partner so that communication and intimacy doesn’t suffer. You will leave this workshop with practical tools so you have a successful transition in these early weeks of parenting.

NEW! There's A Baby Sibling Preparation class

This 1 hour class was developed by Penny Simkin to prepare young children for the birth of a sibling. Topics are presented in a sensitive and age appropriate manner and include: pregnancy, birth (including the video "There's A Baby"), how newborns behave, and practice of holding a baby. The age recommendation is 2.5 - 6 years old with a parent in attendance. Special consideration can be given based on the child's attention span, interest, and ability to speak in sentences. Information is presented to the child with the parent listening in.
