So often when families get home from the hospital or birth center, they have a moment of “what now?” Leanna will set you up for success & an enjoyable postpartum experience with your baby. The moment you walk in the door, I want you to feel prepared for your recovery and healing, supported with information on your emotional wellbeing & ready to care for your baby at each milestone. This is the beginning not only of your baby’s life at home, but also of your parenting philosophy for this baby.
Breastfeeding experiences are just as vast and unique as birth experiences, so Your Breastfeeding Experience classes prepare you realistically for what to expect. In those early days, when you and your baby are both learning, it helps to have a boost of confidence from a comprehensive breastfeeding class. Take advantage of a one-time group class with like-minded parents to learn not only what to expect, but also how to enjoy your time as a breastfeeding mother.
Belly binding pulls the rib cage, muscles of the abdomen and hips back in, leaving you feeling more stable and comfortable in the early months after your baby is born. Its far-reaching benefits extend to mothers who have had a vaginal birth or a cesarean birth. Leanna is honored to bring you a personalized belly binding experience and source of emotional support that won’t be found in a maternity store.
