ROMEMU’S NEW MAMA SUPPORT GROUP facilitated by Julia Mannes, Certified Childbirth Educator, Doula, Lactation Counselor, and Yoga instructor.  
Connect with local mothers, get some tips and ideas, and have a great destination for you and your baby this spring! Topics include: baby and family care, sleep, baby feeding, work considerations, birth processing, hormones and emotions, relationship changes, and more. In this unique, in-depth series you will also dabble in some infant massage, parent baby yoga, babywearing, recipe exchanges, and basic mama operations. You will also receive helpful birth and postpartum preparation materials, and have generous support from the facilitator.  Find your tribe. ALL types of families welcome.  Note this is not a religious group outside of its affiliation with Romemu.  Thanks.

MindBodySoul Yoga

Cost: PAY WHAT YOU CAN  (Usually runs $400 per couple / caregiver pair or $50 per class)

Independent childbirth classes explore everything from nutrition and relaxation, to the curve balls of labor, advocacy during cesarean, breastfeeding and most importantly preparing you for the best beginning of a new family. In 24 hrs of total class time, we also get to explore the stages of labor, anatomy & physiology of how birth works, and truly understand the range of normal that birth entails – with my nerdy and mom self. Through practice, videos and stories we will come to understand the emotional signposts of labor, how to best support a laboring mother and how to make the most of your birth experience. Here’s to Happy Birth-Days!

Location: MindBodySoul Yoga, 350 Fort Washington Ave, NY, NY
