Course Description

What do you need to know about Birth? It’s a great question.

Some people will want to know everything there is to know!

Some people think, “ignorance is bliss,” right?

Truth? It depends on you! However, I will tell you this: Being educated about what to expect related to Birth will help you during the birth process.

I’m not saying you need to know all the details about the plan of care that goes into managing your labor and delivery. I’m saying, you want to be educated enough to know the questions to ask before, during, and after birth.

If you’re planning for an unmedicated birth, being educated about the birth process will help decrease your anxiety and in return, increase your pain threshold.

If you’re planning to be induced and have an epidural, being educated and informed about your options will help you make the best decision for your family. And it’ll help you feel good about the decisions you made, even if things don’t go according to plan.

If you’re having a c-section, knowing about the process and what to expect will help decrease your anxiety. A lot of the time before birth, parents don’t think about the immediate postpartum period and what it actually looks like for both mom and baby.

Knowing what to expect helps shift expectations and helps with your transition into parenthood.

The Birth Made Simple course allows you to learn as much, or as little, as you want, about birth. Pick the topics you’re interested in, and skip the ones you’re not.

Course Description

Your baby’s needs aren’t the same as my baby’s needs.

Baby’s are unique. Being “in tune” with your baby’s needs and feeling confident in your ability to figure out what your non-verbal little one needs, can be complicated when you don’t understand the “Why” behind recommendations.

The Babies Made Simple course includes: feeding on cue (whether breast or bottle), following a routine, limiting wake windows, structuring naps, hitting “reset” when your baby gets overstimulated, how to soothe your baby, how to extend nighttime sleep, and when to start solids.

Maybe you’ve been given recommendations for doing all these things.

Maybe a well-meaning friend shared a “schedule” with you to get your baby to sleep through the night.

I get it, believe me. Sleep and routine are a high priority in my house! What I’ve found to be true is you need to know the “why” and “know-how” to make these tips “stick”. Because babies go through growth spurts and developmental leaps, teething, illness, you go on vacations. You can’t live your life trapped by your baby’s “schedule”. And you need to have the “know-how” to not have to refer to your book, app, or manual every time something throws your baby “off schedule”.

In the Babies Made Simple course, you’ll get the “know-how” and you’ll feel confident in your ability to parent your baby (and have a routine that gets you the extended nighttime sleep you desire!).

Course Description

You’ve either been told “breastfeeding is natural, don’t worry” or maybe you’ve been told “breastfeeding is so hard, I don’t know how women do it.”

Truth. Breastfeeding is natural, but it isn’t easy.

Do you know what I’ve shared with friends who were starting their breastfeeding journey? Take a class, find a lactation consultant who empowers you, and give yourself grace!

Breastfeeding is a journey. In the beginning it can be difficult. And sometimes it works for mama and baby, and sometimes it doesn’t, and that’s okay! Don’t let it be a stressor that steals your JOY!

Be educated. It’s important to know about what to expect during the initiation, building, and maintenance phase of breastfeeding.

It’s important to know about complications that can come up and options for supplementing.

If you’re planning on pumping at any point, it’s important to be educated about pumping techniques and supplies.

Having an over-supply can be as difficult as having an under-supply.

Mom’s health history can affect the breastfeeding dyad.

Returning to work after maternity leave can be really stressful, and worrying when to pump, offer bottles, storage, cleaning, and everything related can add even more stress.

What if your plan is to breastfeed AND offer bottles of expressed breastmilk or formula. That is OK! 

I often hear mothers say, “I want to breastfeed, but I want my baby to sleep through the night.” Hear this: You can breastfeed AND have your baby sleep through the night. Understanding how breastfeeding and “schedules” relate to each other is really important for getting your baby to extend his nighttime sleep.

When is the right time to wean, and what does the process look like? It doesn’t have to be stressful.

All of these topics and questions are covered and answered in my course, Breastfeeding Made Simple.

Breastfeeding is a journey. And it’s a journey that should be enjoyable and mutually beneficial for YOU and your baby.
