In addition to your regular appointments and our 5-week childbirth preparation series, we encourage our clients to also attend prenatal groups. These groups – exclusive to Babymoon Inn clients – are designed to ready the mind, body, and soul for birth and parenting.
Healthy Pregnancy Class
Get all of your prenatal questions answered regarding nutrition, hydration, proper body mechanics, and common pregnancy myths. Learn what is and isn‘t safe during pregnancy and what to really expect over the coming months. This class also includes a brief orientation to Babymoon‘s program of care that covers how to contact your midwife and what resources are available to clients. Your partner is welcome and encouraged to attend.
1st and 3rd Monday of the Month: MindBody Movement (mom only)
These classes will balance staying fit while pregnant with finding relaxation during the hard points of labor. Classes include elements of yoga, stretching, exercises for optimal fetal positioning, breathing, and positive affirmations. You only need to bring a yoga mat.
2nd Saturday of the Month: Parent and Baby Movement
This parent and baby movement class will help deepen the connection between you and your baby through gentle movements together. The movements in this class were selected to help guide baby’s early developments and promote better sleep. The best age for a baby to begin this class is when he/she can hold their head up, typically at 3 to 4 months and they can join this class until they begin crawling.
4th Saturday of the Month: Couples Movement
These classes will help you practice your rhythm of relaxation to create a calm productive birthing experience. In this class you will learn different yoga postures, breathwork and partners will learn therapeutic massage to offer support and encouragement that can be used in pregnancy and labor. This class is offered monthly and may be taken more than once. Doors will open 10 minutes before class to start off with slow dancing. Class will promptly start at 9am.
A Mother’s Blessing is a celebration of a woman’s transition into motherhood. It is a time to celebrate the journey of pregnancy, feel connected with your community, and emotionally prepare for labor. This event will be a safe space for women to come together as they end their journey in pregnancy and embark on this new chapter into motherhood. During this event, there will be affirmations, tea lighting, poem reading, and connection with other expectant mothers.
