Congratulations, you’ve had a baby. Now what? With all of our focus on learning how to take care of a new infant, it is easy to forgo one of motherhood’s most critical requirements for survival: self-care. Join a childbirth educator and early parenting group facilitator to discuss ways to protect one’s mental, physical, and emotional well-being -- all while managing a shift in identity as a new parent. This class is tailored for new moms with babies 0-3 months, but all parents are welcome.
Nancy trained with the National Childbirth Trust as a childbirth educator, qualifying in 2004, and had the pleasure of teaching couples in her North London home. In 2007, she began teaching both pre- and post-natal classes at several Boston-area venues, including hospitals. She devised an educational workshop to train facilitators of early parenting groups and is proud to mentor others in the field.
