You will learn about medical and non-medical pain relief options, communication, positions for labor and birthing, and breathing techniques. This workshop will ease your mind as both first-time and seasoned parents prepare for birth.
This class does not replace a comprehensive childbirth class, and will not cover stages of labor or interventions. You will be given worksheets to take home and refer to later.

This comprehensive virtual course is taught by Board Certified Lactation Consultant Kelly Wysocki-Emery.
Get access to the Breastfeeding: Getting A Strong Start course to watch on your own first…THEN get access to a virtual Q&A session to ask any lingering questions. This education is a hybrid model (some learning on your own via video course and then meeting with a lactation consultant to bring it all into focus).
What you get:
We will cover everything and still leave time for pumping/work/bottle questions. Having your partner in crime join is highly recommended, as they will be a crucial part of the teamwork needed to breastfeed.
Admission: $ 90
Learn how to survive your first several weeks home with baby! In this laid-back class, you will go over real-life scenarios so that you’re confident and prepared when your baby arrives. Your instructor Alyssa Veneklase is a Certified Postpartum Doula, Newborn Care Specialist, and Certified Infant & Child Sleep Consultant. She will answer common questions about feeding, fussiness, soothing techniques, swaddling methods, bathing, safety, sleeping, and more.
The goal of this class is for parents to know they’re fully capable of doing this, they just need to know what to expect ahead of time. You’ve got this!
This class is virtual and not offered live. A recorded version of the class will be emailed to you, along with the worksheets, that can be completed at any time. Alyssa offers a scheduled live 30-minute call to answer questions.
