In Home Classes

Feel more confident parenting your baby with newborn and new parenting education classes that come to you.

Each of my informal parenting classes is designed to inform soon-to-be parents about the many choices available for baby care. I understand that each family is unique, so we will explore different options and techniques for keeping your newborns healthy and happy. My philosophy is that there is “no one right way to parent,” and I encourage each family to find the method that works best for everyone.
