Postpartum Edition

One-Day Postpartum, Newborn Care, & Infant Feeding Class | Lamaze Certified Instructor

This class is so much more than your typical baby care class…

…because I know you need care when you bring your little one home too. This delicate time is one that is so often accompanied by moments of doubt and questions ending in “what now?” While there is no one-size-fits-all approach to this postpartum season, you can optimize your experience with hands-on tools and supportive techniques delivered with an eclectic approach.

This one-day group class is tailored to inform and equip you to not only meet your babies needs, but also the needs of the entrusted infant guardians (YOU!). Understanding that this is the beginning not only of your baby’s life at home but also of your joint parenting philosophy we will explore key information and tools to navigate the many facets of this experience. From the moment you leave your birth location, I want you to feel prepared for your recovery AND ready to care for your baby at each early milestone.

This class goes beyond baby care basics…

…because I understand that each postpartum experience is just as vast and unique as the next. The distinctive value of this 4th trimester class is its integrated approach. Bundling the physical act of caring for you and your newborn together with your emotional well-being, personal goals, and blended parenting vision. You will leave with a personalized, written plan and a realistic expectation that will guide you in your postpartum journey from day one. Setting your family up for a satisfying and memorable adjustment to life with a new baby is my ultimate mission!

Leanna was much more skilled and educated than I would have anticipated an instructor to be. She helped us to know exactly what we wanted in our experience and made sure she understood our wants and needs exactly before jumping into the education session. I would recommend Leanna to any pregnant person I meet because of how knowledgable, professional, kind and personable she was!

Keanna S. | First Time Parent

I was a bit leery about this class only being one day and not a traditional multi-week class. Due to work and being 36 weeks, I needed something short and sweet.  Leanna came well prepared for our session with activities, visuals, and a parent guide and was ready on the spot to answer questions and concerns. This class was very thorough and helped me feel like I put a lot of effort into preparing myself in just a short amount of time.

Hannah R. | First Time Parent

Leanna is very well educated when it comes to birth. She answered all of our (very detailed) questions and provided everything we needed to visualize and prepare for our hospital birth. While we did have a natural birth in the hospital, we went in with a sense of peace feeling informed about the procedures and options I had if an intervention was needed. 

Tish G. | Second Time Parent

Leanna has such a sweet doula heart! She is very knowledgable about pregnancy and birth and helped us prepare so well for the birth of our daughter.

Shannon S. | First Time Parent

Leanna was a pleasure to work with. She is kind and patient, as well as compassionate about personal choices. My wife and I would recommend her in a heartbeat to other expecting parents, especially because the entire course is based off of what YOU want, and not a particular method.

Michael G. | First Time Parent

Leanna was so sweet and shared so many resources with us. I appreciate the support and guidance we gained, resulting in a healthy and safe delivery!

Erin S. | Third Time Parent

I appreciate how truly compassionate Leanna was during our classes. She was knowledgable and made our experience feel so personalized.

Stephanie S. | First Time Parent

Honestly, I didn’t really want to take a birth class. After some persistence, I decided to go for it last minute. I LOVED IT! She knew what she was talking about and took us through the most relevant parts for our situation. It was more helpful than I thought it would be as I realized I did have wants and needs for my experience.

Emily C. | Second Time Parent

When should I take a class?

I recommend taking classes between 28-36 weeks. Each class is designed for late pregnancy, labor, birthing and the immediate postpartum period.

Does my partner need to attend? What if I don't have a partner?

Partners are highly encouraged to attend the whole class as it can make a significant impact on the confidence they feel while supporting you through labor, birth and into postpartum.

I aim to accommodate by offering weekend and/or private classes where you can attend at a time that is most convenient for you.

No partner? No problem - feel free to bring another support person such as a family member, friend, doula, etc.

I am planning to utilize medication, Will this class still benefit me?

YES!!! I am not here to tell you what kind of birth tools you should or shouldn't use. My goal is to make you aware of all the tools you have at your disposal (medicated and unmedicated) and for you to be well equipped in knowing when and where you would like to utilize these tools. Allowing you to make confident decisions whether or not medication or medical intervention is needed (or wanted!) during your birth experience- my aim is to offer you tools and techniques that will serve you through any kind of hospital birth experience you choose.

How much do classes cost?

Each class varies:

Private childbirth sessions start at $347

Group childbirth & postpartum classes at $197

You can find more details about each class by finding it listed under the 'education' tab in the menu above.

Are your classes covered by insurance?

Maybe! FSA/HSA accounts can be used to pay for a class.
A receipt can also be provided to submit for reimbursement upon request.
Call your insurance and ask if your plan covers parent education classes.

Why an emphasis on communication?

This childbirth class is unique, going beyond just a page of birth wishes, into how you can communicate, collaborate, and build a relationship with your OB or Midwife. Learning how to share your family’s preferences respectfully and make the most of your prenatal visits with your birth provider will empower you and begin to turn the birth process into a true experience.

Labor, birth, and the fourth trimester come with so many choices to make. You know what is best for your family and what you don’t know yet, I am here to help you explore in a meaningful and practical way.
