Exceptional Classes for Your Brilliant Family
- Pregnancy + Childbirth Preparation
Make a smart start to learn about options in your local area: we discuss local hospitals, providers, and current trends and protocols, and what all those tests and options are. You have a lot of choices in childbirth, and the North Texas birth network is one of the most progressive and family-centered birth networks in the country. Partner with Ashley in early pregnancy to learn about how to assemble a supportive birth team including your family, doctor, midwife, or doula; make safe choices for pregnancy and birth whether you’re having a baby at home, the hospital, or a birth center; and move confidently into parenthood.
- Parenting + Newborn Care Solutions
We start well before you bring home your baby: prepping the nursery, fluffing the nest, and readying your team ready for launch. Our popular Welcome Home, bebe! Parenting Education Series begins with the magical hour following your infant’s birth and tackles all the details the 4th Trimester will expect you to expertly manage, exploring the Mind-Body Connection, Developmental Milestones, and Practical Management of your new family.
- HypnoBirthing, The Mongan Method
HypnoBirthing® is as much a philosophy of birth as it is a technique for achieving a satisfying, relaxing, and stress-free method of birthing. Using self-hypnosis techniques allows women to access their natural instincts to bring about a safer, easier, more comfortable birthing. Emphasis is placed on pregnancy and childbirth, as well as on pre-birth parenting and the consciousness of the pre-born baby. As a birthing method, HypnoBirthing® is as new as tomorrow and as old as ancient times.
- CPR + First Aid + Safety
Being prepared to respond to an emergency is just the beginning. Our classes offer current information and hands-on learning for baby-proofing and home safety maintenance, car seat installation, and safety on-the-go, in addition to training and certification for professional rescuers.
- Meal Plan + Prep
The kitchen is the heart of your home, and Ashley is going to help you love it again! Whether you’re managing a toddler, a lifestyle change or a medically necessary diet, putting simple systems in place will make your entire life easier. From freezer meal workshops to guest Chefs sharing their secrets, Ashley’s got a place for you at the table.
- Yoga + Tai Chi
Emphasizing the development of strength, balance, motion, and breathing during pregnancy, these classes are the perfect opportunity to find balance and peace during your hurried pregnancy and postpartum. Taught to women at all stages of pregnancy and postpartum, fathers, partners, and caregivers are invited and infants can begin any time. We encourage all infants in attendance to be secured in a carrier.
