Family Classes

Super Siblings Class

Becoming a big brother or big sister is a big deal. Bring your 3-6 year-old to this class for hands-on learning that includes holding a baby and diaper changing. Tots will get comfortable with where their mom will be during delivery, plus they’ll get to take home a scrapbook and t-shirt. The goal is to prepare big brothers and sisters for all the changes that are sure to come with the new addition to the family.

Post-Birth Classes

Breastfeeding takes confidence and isn’t always as easy as it looks. This two-hour class will teach you all the incredible benefits of choosing to breastfeed, while also sharing techniques on how to maintain your milk supply and demonstrate nursing positions that provide the best support for both mom and baby. You’ll leave with the knowledge you need to get off to a great start breastfeeding your little one.


Where you welcome your baby into the world matters.
