Breastfeeding is normal! And breastfeeding can be simple, especially when mother and baby are surrounded by others who understand biological breastfeeding and know how to support the new motherbaby pair. This support group is open to the community, free of charge, and meets Wednesday mornings from 9:00 am-11:00 am.

No registration is required for drop-in hours.

Group Prenatal Class--Complications with Out-of-Hospital Birth Part 2

Free Event

Date: July 9, 2015

*CLIENTS: Please email Shoshana to sign up for this class!

Couples share their experiences!

If the midwives teach anything, it is that pregnancy and birth are unpredictable, meaning the outcome cannot be controlled. We teach the power of surrender, taking care of ourselves with nutrition and living stress-free lives and connecting with our greater community. This session is facilitated by past clients who have had the unexpected happen at their birth. It is an opportunity for current clients to hear what happened, how they coped, and how they healed post birth from their experience.
