Our classes are based on the research that has been proven to lead to the best outcomes for moms and babies.
You won’t find dull Powerpoints or hours of lecture in a Babymoon birth class! Our classes incorporate movement, hands-on activities, and lots of conversation and interaction.
Our educators go through a rigorous and continuous training progress to stay up-to-date on current research, recommendations, and effective teaching strategies for birth classes.
The following birth classes are included in Babymoon Inn’s program of care but are also open to the community.

Back to Work
A frequent concern to arise in the breastfeeding portion of our Lamaze series is how to transition to being a working, breastfeeding parent. This class is recommended if you will be returning to work after the birth of their baby.
“Even as a second-time mom, it had been a while since I had a baby (5 years). I signed up for the 5-week Lamaze series with my husband who would be dealing with a baby for the first time. I was so surprised at the amount of information that was entirely new to me! As the series went on, my birth plan kept changing with the new information. I’m so thankful, because it gave my husband and I time to bond and learn and prepare for this new experience together. To make new friends who were in the same spot as us. It was great to see that Lamaze is nothing like it is on TV.”
“As someone who does a lot of research and likes finding things out for myself, I was incredibly skeptical that Lamaze would add anything to my understanding. But it was clear after our first class that even if I did know a lot of the information, there was plenty I (and my partner) did not. Without the structured learning and group environment Lamaze at Babymoon gave us, we never would have found out what my triggers were in times of physical stress, what actually helped me cope, and how to best communicate to those surrounding me during labor, among so many other valuable lessons.”
