Wellness and Parenting Education for Growing Families

The mission of Breathing Space includes supporting families during the transformative time of pregnancy, birth, and early childhood. 

The 4th Trimester: Postpartum Planning

Often our focus is on pregnancy and childbirth, newborn care and feeding, without much thought as to how to care for recovery and adjustment for the entire family. If you wrote/are writing a birth plan than it’s also important to create a plan for the 4th trimester.

Introduction to Breastfeeding

Breastfeeding is often described as natural, but it isn’t always easy. In this class, parents will learn what to expect during the first days and weeks after birth, how to help get breastfeeding off to a good start, as well as what to do if things do not go as planned. Your instructor is an experienced International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC).

Newborn Development & Care

Learn about life with a newborn, typical development, and baby care tips. Topics include soothing techniques, sleep, diapering, bathing and more. Parents will receive an extensive online resource following the class… Recommended for prenatal parents.
