An online baby care and postpartum healing class for new parents
Happy Baby Happy Mama
Live Online Postpartum Education Series for New Families
This is a three-part series that honors the connectedness of the MamaBaby duo over the first six months post-birth. You and your growing baby were a single connected being during your pregnancy! And your body, your soul, and your baby all remain connected after birth. Unsurprisingly, the months immediately following your baby’s birth are a time of major transition for all.
When your baby cries you jump to the rescue and begin nurturing. Your breasts may fill with milk. You intuitively sing and move with your baby, all of which your baby experienced for months prior to being born. Your touch, your voice, and your smell soothe your baby. Your arms cradle your baby as if they were still in the womb. Your baby may nap longer if you wear them, and it’s no wonder! You are and have always been, your baby’s entire world.
The Happy Mama Happy baby Post-Birth Care class series focuses on the following aspects of the MamaBaby dyad:

SESSION 1: Happy Baby
This session aims to help you be more in tune with your baby, so as to meet their needs with less fussing. Bring all of your newborn questions and concerns, straight up! Together we will dive into typical infant behaviors, including sleep and hunger cues; and we will address everyday baby care, including typical feeding issues.
Discover the nuances of infant communication, baby’s disposition and postnatal behaviors. Learn how to soothe, calm and nap your baby. Happy baby, happier mama, happiest family.
SESSION 2: Happy Mama
In this session we will explore how to find your new rhythm while continuously bonding with your baby. Your recovery is necessary for baby to thrive. We will address specific physical recovery issues and strategies for optimal maternal restoration. We will troubleshoot potential breastfeeding challenges and bottle-feeding strategies that will affect your postpartum recovery.
Equally important are the emotional changes you’ll experience, and an acknowledgment of the powerful transition you are making from maiden to mother.
SESSION 3: Making Milk
We nurture and grow our babies by feeding them, and their nourishment will become a big part of your postpartum recovery, regardless of the way you choose to provide it. Milk, and the feeding of it to our infants, become very personal throughout the first year of their lives.
Understanding the basics of milk production, baby’s cooperation, troubleshooting challenges, and addressing common myths and nursing products are all important elements of successfully feeding your baby. When, where, and how to get prompt assistance is equally important. I can help.
Planning to pump? There are strategies, storage, and bottle-feeding considerations to learn about; and there are tricks that will completely change the landscape of your postpartum experience.
Perhaps you’re formula feeding, or planning to use a combination of both human milk and formula. You'll learn optimal bottle preparation, safety standards, and cleaning precautions. This session covers it all.
