ONLINE Intro to Baby Sign Language Virtual
May 26, 2022 - May 26, 2022
Stop guessing what your baby is trying to tell you and start spending more time fulfilling your child's specific needs. Baby Sign Language gives parents the opportunity to communicate with children long before babies can verbalize their wants and needs. Research studies show that signing with babies accelerates language acquisition, reduces frustration and aggressive behavior, and as children mature, results in a greater interest in reading. Out of all the wonderful benefits of baby sign language, the most important benefit of all is that signing will greatly deepen the bond between you and your child.

What you will learn

Happy Baby Signs' Introductory Workshop introduces basic baby signs that are based on American Sign Language (ASL) and is designed for expectant parents and parents with hearing babies who range in age from birth to 18 months old. The workshop is an hour and a half long during which information on the latest research on the benefits of signing with babies will be discussed. Parents are taught useful tips on how to train their babies to sign. Fun activities and songs will show you how easy it can be to integrate these signs into your every day routine and jump-start your child's verbal skills. This is a great way to see what infant signing is all about without a major commitment. Please join us with or without your baby!

Navigating Your Birth: Secrets from a Doula Virtual
Jun 7, 2022 - Jul 12, 2022

Imagine a birth experience where you feel informed, supported, and confident. Your desires are taken seriously, you know the right questions to ask, and you feel no fear bringing your child into this world. This class will equip you with the information and tools you (and your partner!) need to make this a reality. Whether you are desiring an unmedicated birth, are stoked for the epidural, or aren’t really sure yet!

 Join a group of expecting parents as we dive into everything you might experience during your time at the hospital. We’ll discuss how to prepare for birth, what to expect at each stage, all of your choices in labor, advocacy, and so much more. With this knowledge you will feel confident in your labor and as a new parent.

This class is taught by experienced birth and postpartum doula, and childbirth educator Cameron Seeberger. Having been to many births before, Cameron offers a unique insight into what birth is really like, and how to successfully navigate birthing in a hospital setting. But you won’t just hear from a doula– this class includes interviews with real mothers, all of whom had very different birth experiences and share their stories and advice.

We’ll discuss all of the choices you have with epidurals, inductions, and other medical interventions without any shame or judgment. You will also learn the evidence-based information you need to know to make the best decisions for your birth. Plus, you will connect with other expecting parents, learn lessons from a doula, and hear real stories from real women.

 

Week 1: Preparing for Birth

Week 2: Early Labor and Inductions

Week 3: The Hospital Experience

Week 4: Communication is Key

Week 5: Staying in Control

Week 6: Finishing Strong

Charla de sueño para bebés

Este taller va a responder las inquietudes que tienes sobre el sueño de tu bebé y te dará consejos prácticos que podrás implementar de inmediato. Además, podrás hacer preguntas en vivo.

ONLINE Intro to Baby Sign Language Virtual
Jul 26, 2022 - Jul 26, 2022
Stop guessing what your baby is trying to tell you and start spending more time fulfilling your child's specific needs. Baby Sign Language gives parents the opportunity to communicate with children long before babies can verbalize their wants and needs. Research studies show that signing with babies accelerates language acquisition, reduces frustration and aggressive behavior, and as children mature, results in a greater interest in reading. Out of all the wonderful benefits of baby sign language, the most important benefit of all is that signing will greatly deepen the bond between you and your child.

What you will learn

Happy Baby Signs' Introductory Workshop introduces basic baby signs that are based on American Sign Language (ASL) and is designed for expectant parents and parents with hearing babies who range in age from birth to 18 months old. The workshop is an hour and a half long during which information on the latest research on the benefits of signing with babies will be discussed. Parents are taught useful tips on how to train their babies to sign. Fun activities and songs will show you how easy it can be to integrate these signs into your every day routine and jump-start your child's verbal skills. This is a great way to see what infant signing is all about without a major commitment. Please join us with or without your baby!

Online HypnoBirthing® - The Mongan Method | 5-week series Virtual
Jul 31, 2022 - Aug 28, 2022

 HypnoBirthing® is as much a philosophy of birth as it is a technique for achieving a satisfying, relaxing, and stress-free method of birthing. This amazing program teaches you, along with your birthing companion, the art and joy of experiencing birth in a more comfortable manner. Through a very simple program of relaxation, self-hypnosis and education, you will learn to release emotions tied to fear-based stories and misinformation. You will see birth as normal and learn to trust that your body and call upon its own natural ability to focus and relax and thus relieve, or even eliminate, discomfort. HypnoBirthing® helps families bring babies into the world in a calm and gentle way.

This class will begin by working on the “what to expects” of childbirth, normalizing the process for both partners as well as working on creating a plan for your ideal birth, together. We will delve into all normal aspects of a comprehensive childbirth education class; breathing, stages of labor, birth plans, natural childbirth vs pain relief options, medical interventions, coping techniques, and hands on partner support comfort measures. When a family is properly prepared for childbirth and when mind and body are in harmony you and your partner can feel at peace, confident and heard.

We will also work on a solid foundation of relaxation and breaking the Fear-Tension-Pain Cycle that can affect your birth in a negative way. Your Birth Companion will learn many useful tools and tips to help support the birthing mother. This class is ideal for anyone wishing to go in depth to learn about birthing, and those wanting to work closely with their partner to have a more satisfying birth.

Research studies show that signing with babies accelerates language acquisition, reduces frustration and aggressive behavior, and as children mature, results in a greater interest in reading. Out of all the wonderful benefits of baby sign language, the most important benefit of all is that signing will greatly deepen the bond between you and your child.

What you will learn

Happy Baby Signs' Introductory Workshop introduces basic baby signs that are based on American Sign Language (ASL) and is designed for expectant parents and parents with hearing babies who range in age from birth to 18 months old. The workshop is an hour and a half long during which information on the latest research on the benefits of signing with babies will be discussed. Parents are taught useful tips on how to train their babies to sign. Fun activities and songs will show you how easy it can be to integrate these signs into your every day routine and jump-start your child's verbal skills. This is a great way to see what infant signing is all about without a major commitment. Please join us with or without your baby!

Online HypnoBirthing® - The Mongan Method | 5-week series Virtual
Nov 5, 2022 - Nov 19, 2022

 HypnoBirthing® is as much a philosophy of birth as it is a technique for achieving a satisfying, relaxing, and stress-free method of birthing. This amazing program teaches you, along with your birthing companion, the art and joy of experiencing birth in a more comfortable manner. Through a very simple program of relaxation, self-hypnosis and education, you will learn to release emotions tied to fear-based stories and misinformation. You will see birth as normal and learn to trust that your body and call upon its own natural ability to focus and relax and thus relieve, or even eliminate, discomfort. HypnoBirthing® helps families bring babies into the world in a calm and gentle way.

This class will begin by working on the “what to expects” of childbirth, normalizing the process for both partners as well as working on creating a plan for your ideal birth, together. We will delve into all normal aspects of a comprehensive childbirth education class; breathing, stages of labor, birth plans, natural childbirth vs pain relief options, medical interventions, coping techniques, and hands on partner support comfort measures. When a family is properly prepared for childbirth and when mind and body are in harmony you and your partner can feel at peace, confident and heard.

We will also work on a solid foundation of relaxation and breaking the Fear-Tension-Pain Cycle that can affect your birth in a negative way. Your Birth Companion will learn many useful tools and tips to help support the birthing mother. This class is ideal for anyone wishing to go in depth to learn about birthing, and those wanting to work closely with their partner to have a more satisfying birth.
