Nested’s In-Person Childbirth Education (CBE) Boot Camp is a comprehensive class that will prepare you for your journey through labor, delivery, and the postpartum period!

In this class we will:

  • Review common third trimester issues and what to expect at your 36-week visit
  • Learn about the signs of labor, when to call your obstetrician, and what should be on your hospital bag packing list
  • Discuss each stage of labor and what can help alleviate and relax the mom, including options for pain management and potential interventions during the labor process
  • See what the hospital process will look like and what to expect from your healthcare team
  • Discuss the “typical” childbirth scenario  as well as how to prepare for the unexpected, including inductions, assisted vaginal births and c-sections.
  • Learn from experienced labor doulas as they demonstrate specialized comfort techniques to help with labor pain
  • Learn and practice tips, tricks and techniques for Prenatal Wellness: Pelvic Floor Health, Ergonomics & Exercises from a physical therapist

At Nested we know the importance of optimizing the physical and mental health of both parents during pregnancy and the postpartum period. With coping strategies, empowerment, education on diet & exercise and community resources, parents will leave feeling prepared for the doctor’s office, the delivery room and the trip back home.

We recommend taking this class on the earlier side of your pregnancy (24-39 weeks).

Note: 1 registration ticket allows for up to 2 people (1 ticket = 2 people) to attend the class and access the course resources.

WHO OWNS ANNE FRANK’S STORY?
Sid Silver is a man obsessed. When he learns about a young girl named Anne Frank and her diary, Silver makes it his mission to ensure her tale is heard. But is the manuscript a work of art? A cultural treasure? Or simply a valuable product? As he fights for the diary’s publication and the rights to adapt it into a play, Silver’s idealism turns to fanaticism, and his good intentions may prove to be his undoing. A fascinating, semi-fictional story about one forgotten writer’s battle for one extraordinary girl’s diary.

“Absorbing… a fascinating, multilayered tale.” —The New York Times
