Have you started thinking ahead to the days and weeks after your baby arrives?
How are you going to take care of this little one?
Who’s going to take care of YOU? Are your days of sleeping in numbered?
How do you change a diaper?
What’s the best way to burp a baby?
We get it! It’s a LOT of information. Get ahead of the game and learn the basics with Jen Chandlee, Homegrown Babies Director of Postpartum Education and Services.
Designed to help you navigate the postpartum, this 4.5 hour class is taken prenatally, ideally between 30-35 weeks. We will cover postpartum planning and support; changing identity, roles and relationships; breastfeeding; infant needs, cues and soothing techniques; sleep scenarios; and more!
The cost is $65 per couple; singles are welcome to bring a friend, family member, or support person. If you are taking childbirth classes, you do not need to be finished with those classes to attend the Babymoon class.

We also offer a free weekly Mother with Courage Postpartum Support Circle and a monthly support circle specifically for moms who have been self or clinically diagnosed with Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders (PMAD).
