Classes offered through Sound Breastfeeding are now closed. New classes offerings through Sound Beginnings will launch in 2017!

Since 2009, I have offered a variety of breastfeeding and parenting related classes, including private and community options. As a perinatal educator, I truly enjoy sharing information and options with families.

“What Goes In, Must Come Out” Cloth Diaper and Elimination Options Class

Elimination (pee and poop) is a sign of a baby’s nutrition, hydration, and overall health. It’s also a part of care from the newborn stage until potty learning. This class covers a variety of aspects, but most attendees will refer to this as a “cloth diaper” class, or a “wow, there was a lot more to that than I expected” class.
Suitable for all families interested in diapering alternatives. Babies welcome.

Breastfeeding Beyond the First Year Class

Beyond infancy breastfeeding actually becomes more complex for many families. Part education and part support group, this class is structured around the questions and concerns of attendees. Whether it’s setting boundaries, tandem nursing, or the steps toward weaning, this class provides a supportive and informative space for education and discussion.
