I am so excited to bring you a low cost 2 Day Weekend Intensive Childbirth Preparation course in Upper Manhattan!

March 16th & 17th
Sat & Sun
10:00am-2:00pm each day, 8 hrs total
$250 per couple or birth team
Little Jewel Childcare, Inwood
4915 Broadway, 2M
(Right bank of elevators inside the building)

Who this is for: the busy couple that wanted to take a course, but due to travel, work schedules, switching providers, moving, etc., couldn’t fit it into their schedules. Perhaps your new provider or the doula you just hired has encouraged you to take a course and you’d rather be in a classroom environment vs hiring a private teacher?

What we will cover: The first day covers childbirth as an event your body was made for. We will visit labor stages, relaxation (including breath), how the body works, and practice positions.

Our second class prepares you for options in childbirth, including anesthesia and augmentation in labor, the curveballs of labor (i.e. preparing for the unexpected) including cesarean, informed consent and informed refusal (i.e. advocating for your best outcome) and finally coming together as a team.

What’s included / not included: Aside from the course topics listed above, there are Postpartum care worksheets and newborn care procedures to discuss with your birth team included for you to use afterwards. Labor rehearsals and relaxation techniques as homework moving forward until your expected day comes. There’s a full student binder, and as a thank you, a book we think you’ll love! Breastfeeding, baby care and Babywearing are NOT included.

Want more? If you have the time I strongly encourage you to take a full childbirth education course. Combo courses can also be offered by taking two concurrent sessions at the same time or contact me for other independent childbirth educators/course offerings.
But if you don’t, this is for you. I’d rather you get the information than EVER think its too late!

Please email me with questions or to sign up. $50 deposits are required to hold your space in the course, there is limited enrollment.

I look forward to meeting you! Here’s to your best Birth-day!
Gillian

In this two and a half-hour class, you get introduced to all the carriers your friends and family have given you or told you about with trained babywearing educator Gillian Foreman.

Babywearing can seem daunting at first so we want to help make it digestible. Explore why we babywear and how to do it comfortably, safely, and with development in mind for our baby. Learn the difference between ring slings, mei tais, wraps and soft-structured carriers (buckle carriers), not to mention how to wear them and when. Expectant couples, as well as those with babies (up to pre-walking), are all welcome!

As a bonus, any carriers, custom preorders, outerwear or accessories* purchased on the day of the class will be 10% off.
(*by accessories we mean these adorable hand knit baby legs, hats, toy carriers for kids, nursing necklaces and soft blocks we commissioned from local moms)

To make sure we get to spend the last hour going around for one-on-one hands-on instruction, this workshop is limited to 8 participants.

Saturdays starting  April 12, 2014 for 8 weeks
MindBodySoul Yoga
5:00-8:00 pm

Cost: PAY WHAT YOU CAN  (Usually runs $400 per couple / caregiver pair or $50 per class)

Independent childbirth classes explore everything from nutrition and relaxation, to the curve balls of labor, advocacy during cesarean, breastfeeding and most importantly preparing you for the best beginning of a new family. In 24 hrs of total class time, we also get to explore the stages of labor, anatomy & physiology of how birth works, and truly understand the range of normal that birth entails – with my nerdy and mom self. Through practice, videos and stories we will come to understand the emotional signposts of labor, how to best support a laboring mother and how to make the most of your birth experience. Here’s to Happy Birth-Days!

Location: MindBodySoul Yoga, 350 Fort Washington Ave, NY, NY
