Birth is a powerful event in your life as a mother and new family. This comprehensive class will help to prepare expecting parents with mother-centered information. We individualize the class for each mother based on their pregnancy and birth goals, where they plan to give birth, their level of support, any medical/trauma history, feeding goals and home life. The last hours of class include our 4th Trimester workshop information to prepare for the first 12 weeks with your newborn.
Timing: Class begins at 9:30-3:30 with a break for lunch.

Are you wondering if it is time to introduce potty training at home? Are you wondering which potty chair to use? How about the choice between Pull-Ups and underwear? And what about rewards- praise? M&M’s? Sticker charts? We will be addressing all these common questions, and many more, during our evening Parent Workshop on Toilet Training.
We realize parents can feel overwhelmed by the well-meaning but often contradictory advice from friends & family and the numerous on-line resources and books. We understand each child has his/her own unique temperament style and deserves a clear, simple and stress-free toilet training approach. Wherever you may be on your child’s toilet training journey we welcome you to join us for an informative, supportive and fun evening. There will be plenty of time for personal questions and group support.
This workshop is appropriate for loving parents & caregivers of children one year and older.
