Please join us for a class or two!
We host a wide variety of prenatal, postpartum and baby-and-me classes. Be sure to check out our Calendar for dates and times – we frequently add new events. Here are some of the classes we offer…
Designed to be taken during the first trimester of pregnancy, this one-session class help you understand and prepare for the physical and emotional changes you can expect in the first three months of your pregnancy. We will discuss common discomforts and remedies, prenatal screening tests, and fetal development. We will also offer tips for eating well, staying active, and keeping you and your baby healthy. Take this class early in your first trimester.
These are babies whose parents choose to easily and naturally prepare for childbirth using the Hypnobabies method of Hypnotic Childbirth, which some might call “hypno-birthing”. Hypnobabies however, is very different in that at Hypnobabies we teach real medical hypnosis techniques, creating an automatically peaceful, relaxing and more comfortable pregnancy, a calm confident Birth Partner, and an easier, more comfortable and sometimes pain-free natural birthing for our Hypno-Mom.
The Bradley Method is a system of natural labor techniques in which a woman and her coach play an active part. It is a simple method of increasing self-awareness, teaching you how to deal with the stress of labor. Bradley teachers urge couples to find what is comfortable for them in labor. Instead of seeking to control the sensations of labor with distraction methods, The Bradley Method encourages you to trust your body using natural breathing combined with relaxation.
This is the ideal refresher class for a couple welcoming another child. This 3 hour class will give both you and your birth partner the confidence to know just what to do and when and how to do it. No matter what kind of birth you envision you’ll be able to labor without anxiety or worry. Be comfortable and confident as you welcome your new little one into your family!
Yoga classes that inspire mothers-to-be to unite breath and movement.
