Postpartum Wellness, Breastfeeding & Newborn Care with Elizabeth Varaso

At MWJ we offer a comprehensive pregnancy, birth and postpartum series that consists of THREE different classes for you to choose from. Take all 3 in our Childbirth Education Intensive.

This series serves as your trusted guide from your 1st trimester all the way through your 4th trimester. From your your earliest questions about a healthy pregnancy, continuing on as you prepare for labor and birth, all the way through postpartum wellness, breastfeeding and basic newborn care, each class in this series is designed to give you exactly the information and tools you need, just as you need them.

It's recommended to take the Class One - Positively Pregnant before 20 weeks of pregnancy; Class Two - Confident & Prepared Birth Class between 20 and 35 weeks of pregnancy; and Class Three - Postpartum Wellness, Breastfeeding & Newborn Care between weeks 30 and 37 of your pregnancy.

Postpartum Wellness, Breastfeeding & Newborn Care

Welcoming your new baby means that you are endeavoring three important and demanding jobs - care of your postpartum body & mind, learning how to breastfeed confidently and practical care of your newborn baby. This class will help you and your partner know what to expect and how to create the best possible support to thrive in all of these roles. Postpartum wellness topics include what to expect during your early hours and days at the hospital, how to care for your healing postpartum body and optimizing emotional support and healthy expectations for the postpartum period. You'll learn the basics of breastfeeding such as getting a good latch, how often to feed your baby and how to know that your baby is getting enough milk, how to handle common challenges and practical solutions for breastfeeding. We'll also discuss pumping, baby's first bottle, safe storage of milk and returning to work. You'll become familiar with typical newborn appearance and behavior, cover the basics of diapering, dressing and bathing your baby as well as supporting healthy sleep for your baby and yourself.
