I found Ready for Baby to be the perfect complement to the HypnoBirthing as Jennifer brings her same sense of calm and openness to discussions about what happens after baby arrives. I particularly valued the conversations about baby wearing and baby-led breastfeeding. I’m excited to bond with my baby using the ideas I gained in the class.
Next Ready for Baby class:
These classes are scheduled with parents attending HypnoBirthing classes.
Jennifer has created the Ready for Baby class as a follow-up to HypnoBirthing, as the 5 HypnoBirthing® classes do not include parenting and breastfeeding information. Other participants are welcome.
This 2 1/2 hour class is packed with information to prepare you for the first hours and days all the way to the first 6 weeks after birth. Class topics will include the importance of skin-to-skin contact, baby wearing, diapering and bathing, baby-led breastfeeding, and creating a plan for the first 6 weeks of parenting.
We will watch DVDs on early skin-to-skin contact and on baby-led breastfeeding. Helpful handouts and resources are included.
Participants are asked to bring any of the following that they currently have. Please do not buy anything specifically for the class:
- baby carriers – soft pack, wrap or sling
- doll or stuffed animal
- diapers if you have something interesting to show us, ex. a cloth system
Cost if not attending HypnoBirthing:
Per person: $17.70 + $2.30 HST = $20.00
Per couple: $35.40 + $4.60 HST = $40.00
