We offer two two-hour classes: Breastfeeding Basics and Back to Work Breastfeeding.
Infant Massage Instruction
Massage can relieve many of the common discomforts infants experience. In this class, a certified infant massage instructor will teach you to use massage to soothe an infant struggling with acid reflux, upset tummy, teething, colic and other issues. Parents will learn to massage safely and correctly to both ease a baby’s discomfort and bond with him or her. The class can also be used as a simple massage and bonding experience between parents and baby.
Using Essential Oils & Herbs Safely During Pregnancy
The essential oils and herbs you used regularly before pregnancy can have different effects on your pregnant body. In this fun, fact-filled class, we discuss how natural remedies can be used safely to stop nausea, help you sleep and relieve anxiety. From lemongrass body lotion to peppermint tea, we’ll answer your questions and equip you to use essential oils and herbs with confidence.
Safely Stretching During Pregnancy
Sleeping woes and aching backs are among the most common pregnancy complaints. In our stretching class, Nancy Heath, a licensed massage therapist, teaches Active Birth principles including proper positioning, breathing techniques and correct muscular alignment. Stretching has been shown to relieve lower back and hip discomfort, help you get a better night’s sleep and even shorten labor. Learn how to achieve all those results in your pregnancy.
