This class is designed exclusively for Solo Parents!  We will explore what resources can be most helpful, local options and how to line up support ahead of time, and insights gleaned from those that have gone before you.  


Join us and learn how to care for your newborn from those very first moments after birth, so that you can enter this new phase of your life confident and ready to begin!  An experiential class, each member in our intimate group setting will receive personalized instruction and hands-on training in how to care for their new baby. Members will leave feeling more familiar with newborn qualities and behaviors, and ready to tailor their new-found skills to their own newborn's unique needs.
