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 your questions answered regarding nutrition, hydration, proper body mechanics, and common pregnancy myths. Learn what is and isn‘t safe during pregnancy and what to expect over the coming months. This class also includes a brief orientation to Babymoon‘s program of care that covers how to contact the midwife and what resources are available to clients. Partners are welcome and encouraged to attend.
begin in 2nd trimester, may attend multiple times
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. Participants need to bring a yoga mat. Due to limited space, this class is for pregnant women only. Partners do not need to attend. This class is offered monthly and may be taken more than once.
For mothers–to–be only, our Mama–Baby Hour is a social gathering during the final trimester of pregnancy. Enjoy delicious snacks and the fellowship of other women as you celebrate the last days of pregnancy. If you desire, our midwives will “map“ your belly to draw the position where your baby currently resides. Wear comfortable clothing that allows you to expose your belly if you like! Female partners are welcome to join you at Mama-Baby Hour. Male partners are invited to attend Papa-Prep Hour, which is held at the same time.
offered monthly, may attend multiple times
Join us for Papa Prep Hour, a laid-back gathering for dads, led by dads. Topics rotate every three months and will cover pregnancy, birth, and postpartum – all from a dad’s perspective. Discuss topics like how to be a supportive birth partner, how to pack a diaper bag, how to bond with your baby, and what to expect during the immediate days and weeks after baby comes home. This class is for expectant fathers; new fathers with babies in arms are also welcome to attend to share your knowledge and experience.
