Do you want someone with decades of experience to walk with you through your pregnancy and postpartum period?
Do you have questions that can’t be answered in a fifteen minute prenatal appointment or a google search?
Your program includes:
Pregnancy Wellness Consult via Skype or phone: We can discuss optimizing nutrition, the use of supplements, exercise, stress reduction, improving sleep, your changing body, decreasing pregnancy discomforts, finding a doula, and more.
Natural Childbirth Class in Bedford, MA or via Skype: This three hour class is about your questions and concerns, so you set the agenda! Topics covered often include: the natural process of birth; your options and the process of informed decision making; contraction rituals, support techniques, and doula tricks; interventions, complications, and cesarean birth; and what to expect postpartum. You will leave this class with a toolbox full of tools to use during your labor!*
Prenatal Breastfeeding Class in Bedford, MA or via Skype: Preparing for breastfeeding before your baby is born will make the first few weeks easier for all of you. You will learn about latch, positioning, how to know your baby is getting enough to eat, lactation consultant tricks of the trade, how breastfeeding changes over the early weeks, hand expression, newborn sleep, milk storage, and more. Class is approximately 1.5 hours.
A Visit with an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) in Your Home (within 30 minutes of Bedford, MA) or via Skype: Many new parents say they didn’t know what they didn’t know. An IBCLC visit during your early postpartum period can reassure you that all is well with breastfeeding or keep small issues from becoming bigger problems. Now that you are hard at work at your new job, you’ll love having someone who can answer your breastfeeding and newborn care questions.
Support via Phone, Text, and Email through your Pregnancy and the Newborn Period (until your baby is 6 weeks old): No question is stupid or unimportant!
