Evidence shows that parents who have properly studied breastfeeding before baby arrives, will have a higher rate of success. We are holding a special class for expecting parents to gain knowledge about lactation and the natural way of feeding your baby. Topics include benefits, technique, physiology, health and nutrition, common early concerns, alternative techniques, and how to incorporate breastfeeding into your lifestyle. The goal of this class is to inform and instill confidence to successfully and exclusively breastfeed.

A Birth Circle is an informational, inspirational, fun event where parents and parents-to-be come to talk about birth in a safe environment, without judgment. Most people who have given birth don't typically get an opportunity to share the positive aspects of their birth story (natural, medicated, Cesarean, hospital, birth center or homebirth) with others who are there JUST TO HEAR THE STORY...come share your story.
This event is open to women who plan to get pregnant or have given birth, or plan to give birth, grandmothers, sisters and doulas are also welcome to join!
While of course, there may be some negative parts to your story which you are welcome to share, Birth Circles is not a place to try to fully process your traumatic birth but feel free to tell your story.
Birth Circles tend to include laughter, questions, learning, inspiration and lots of listening.
