Be Healthy Expectations

Pregnancy is a special time.  It is exciting and daunting, slow-moving and over in the blink of an eye.  There are so many books out there about pregnancy, birth, postpartum care, and taking care of your newborn that it is easy to get overwhelmed.

The Be Healthy Expectations series summarizes Dr. Sears’ Pregnancy Book, Breastfeeding Book, and Baby Book.  The series consists of 3 2-hour workshops for women trying to conceive, expectant mamas, and postpartum mamas.  The workshops can be taken as a series or individually, and can be taken at any point when trying to conceive, during pregnancy, or postpartum.  As part of the series fee you will receive a reference book for each completed workshop.

In this series you will learn about:

One of the special things about this series is that you will be introduced to babywearing.  During the class you will have an opportunity to learn about the benefits of babywearing including how it can promote bonding, breastfeeding, adjustment to parenthood, and infant growth.  Participants will be able to try a Moby Wrap, ErgoBaby Organic Carrier*, Boba 3G*, Toddler Tula, MayaWrap Ring Sling, TaylorMade Water Ring Sling, Ellaroo Mei Tai, and a woven wrap.

I think taking a quality birthing class is key to starting your parenting journey in a positive manner.  If you commit to (and pay your deposit for) a Hypnobabies or Mindful Birth class with Julie Byers I will offer you 10% off the Expectations series.  Make sure you let me know so that I can give you the appropriate discount!

*A special thank you to ErgoBaby and Boba for donating carriers to be used in this class!
