LAST Infant Massage Class until late Spring 2014

Parents, parents-to-be and family members are welcome to join us for classes designed to educate and support you in the beautiful art of baby massage. Studies have shown that babies need loving touch to grow emotionally and physically strong. Infant Massage can relieve symptoms of colic and gas, stimulates babies body systems, relieve stress through increased relaxation for parent and baby and can help regulate sleep patterns and so much more. Infant Massage also offers special individual time for communication that builds love and respect.

At these classes you will learn the benefits of infant massage for the babies and parents, infant massage strokes, songs, receive handouts, have conversations on infant care and meet other parents, I hope to see you there!

Classes are best for ages 6 weeks – 7 months/ precrawling.

Location: Fluffy Bottom Babies
Dates: November 15th – December 6th, Fridays
Time: 10:30 – 11:30am
Investment: $75 for 4 weeks, 60 minute classes

Postpartum Doula Special for September and October

Take advantage of my Labour Day Special on my Postpartum Doula Services for September and October 2013.

What a postpartum doula does changes from day to day, as the needs of the family 551095_469122216439336_702803440_n - Copychange. Postpartum doulas do whatever a mother needs to best enjoy and care for her new baby. They share information about baby care with parents, as well as teach siblings and partners to “mother the mother.” They assist with breastfeeding education. Postpartum doulas also make sure the mother is fed, well hydrated and comfortable. They are the great “mother’s helper” to make her feel comfortable but to also perform light household chores and organizational tasks; an extra set of hands. (from www.DONA.org)

Survey for Newborn Classes

Parents expecting a new baby often have many questions during the pregnancy.  Embrace Doula is looking to start some new classes, unlike any currently being offered in HRM, on newborns for families to take prenatally.  In these classes parents can expect to learn about what to anticipate those early days after delivery and to support them with newborn care.  These Newborn Classes will be designed to give families all the critical information they will need to experience their new journey into parenthood in the most positive way possible and to empower them along the way.

Please feel free to send this survey to anyone that you know that is expecting or post to your facebook page.  Thank  you so much.

If you are completing this survey I thank you for your time and input.  This survey should take about 4 minutes to complete and the information that you provide will help me implement and provide these newborn classes that I hope to offer.
