The After Birth Care Workshop is a one-day postpartum and parenthood preparation class designed to give parents the skills, mindset, and confidence to properly care for their newborn.

We’ll help you discover a variety of ways on how to know more about your little one and how to meet your baby’s physical, emotional, and developmental needs while remaining calm in doing so. Its goal is to guide you in your transition from pregnancy to parenthood and teach you how to thrive rather than simply survive early parenthood. The class will explain why baby care starts with self-care, and with the essential information about postpartum recovery, we will help you realize how a mother can flourish after birth rather than deplete.

The After Birth Care Workshop is a hands-on class and it will help build your confidence and readiness to meet your little one. It will also help you to trust your parenting instincts and delve deeper into the first few months of your baby’s life. Lastly, it will cover the specific role of the father or co-parent and how they can be involved and care for the baby.

We highly recommend it to expectant parents who are at their third trimester (29 weeks) of the pregnancy and we encourage the expectant mom to attend together with her partner (husband, friend, or relative). This is so you will be immediately ready once you have given birth to your newborn.
