Move & Get Comfy for Labor is a two-part class, totalling 4 hours. The first two hours are virtual/Zoom for everyone. There are two per month to choose from, attend one. The second part is 2-hours and we offer that generally once per month. The second part can be attended all virtual or there are limited spots for people to attend in-person in Northborough, MA. There is also homework to do before Part One, so pay attention to the email you receive for your confirmation of this package purchase! And be sure to schedule BOTH Part One AND Part Two!!!!
Ready for an Awesome Birth
This package includes the Move & Get Comfy for Labor two-part class (4 hours) and the Awesome Birth Ready 3-week series (9 hours). Both classes include lots of additional "homework"/resources, including the ability to reach out to your instructors after classes to ask them questions! These classes really get you and your partner ready for labor and birth!
Ready for Life with a Baby (breastfeeding plan)
This package includes three classes: Breastfeeding Ready (3 hours) and New Baby & Postpartum Ready (3 hours) and Pump & Bottle Ready (2.25 hours). You'll also receive plenty of "homework" resources after class and can always reach out to your instructors with questions! This really gets you ready for living with and caring for your new baby!
Ready for Life with Baby (bottlefeeding-only plan)
This package is for those who do NOT plan on breastfeeding/chestfeeding/nursing/pumping but instead plan to only bottlefeed with formula or donor milk. In addition to the New Baby & Postpartum Ready class, you'll receive a private, virtual class (options for evening/weekend are available, just ask!). We'll go over updated recommendations on bottles, positions for bottlefeeding, flow rates, bottle preparation and more! We'll also cover how to reduce/prevent engorgement and reduce any milk supply, as milk often "comes in" during that first week and parents who don't plan on nursing/pumping need to stop that production. Grandparents welcome to join you on the call. This class is with Jeanette Mesite Frem, IBCLC, Babies in Common's owner/childbirth educator and lactation consultant.
