NESTED Childbirth Education Boot Camp (IN PERSON)
Jan 23 @ 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm

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.

We will explore several topics, including: concerns about childbirth and parenting; balancing family with work outside the home; navigating new relationships with your partner, parents, and in-laws; and recognizing post (and pre)-partum depression and anxiety.  The group will be kept small so that connections can be fostered easily, even in a virtual space.

SECOND THOUGHTS: ADAPTING TO BABY #2
3 Wednesdays: February 23, March 2, and March 9

8:00-9:00 PM
$62 for the three-week session
Facilitated by Taylor Lerner, Psy.D

Are you expecting baby #2? Looking to create a community with other second time parents to exchange ideas and find support? This group will meet weekly via Zoom for three weeks to provide a safe space for second time parents-to-be to discuss their experiences and learn from one another. We will explore several topics, including: managing your big kid’s (big!) feelings before, during, and after welcoming the new baby; kid-care and self-care with two; navigating new relationships and new roles; and the complicating factors of Covid-19. Find support and connections while eating your lunch!
The group will be kept small so that connections can be fostered easily, even in a virtual space, and also so that in-person outdoor meet-ups can be organized safely if the group wants.
