The Healthy Moms for Healthy Babies series will focus on giving you the tools to develop a healthy lifestyle now, and to commit to lifelong changes.
In our Prenatal Nutrition course, a Childbirth Educator will provide education on properly balanced nutrition (including key vitamins and minerals) to support a healthy pregnancy, the importance of sleep, foods to substances to avoid during pregnancy, guidelines surrounding proper weight gain trimester by trimester, as well as how to transition to a postpartum diet to support maternal recovery and breastfeeding.
Expecting and preparing for a new baby is very exciting, but can also bring a lot of stress and anxiety for expectant parents. There are a lot of natural, simple things that can be done to manage this stress and anxiety during this time. Join us in our Stress & Anxiety Management session to learn more about these management strategies, as well as what you can do if you feel you can’t manage your stress and anxiety on your own.
Our Prenatal Yoga class focuses on breathing and safe sequences which can help ease labor and delivery. A Certified Prenatal Yoga Instructor will take you through a basic routine. Our prenatal structure encourages movement into optimal birthing positioning, as well as strengthening and softening the pelvic floor to make for a safe labor and works muscles that mom will need in the early stages after baby has arrived. Our yoga class ends with a deep guided relaxation to help restore the body at this changing time.
