Sibling Prep

Helps to prepare big brother or sister (ages 3 – 10) for the arrival of new baby. Come bring the older ones for a little fun learning about what it's like to have a new baby in the house, some practical tips on how to get them involved and they take home a self-made project that gives them a sense of personal responsibility for keeping baby safe! This class meets on the 2nd Tuesday of the month, from 6 - 7 PM, or 7 - 8 PM. Anyone is welcome to attend regardless of where the birth is planned to take place. Please indicate if the older sibling is intended to be present for the baby's birth. I have a special book just for them. It covers in detail what their little eyes will see during the birth, including an actively laboring mom and various instruments used to attend to mother and newborn during a natural childbirth. Class fee: $15 for 1st child - $10 for each additional child. Questions? Contact Jenn the Doula @ 407-878-0900.

How to Have a Better Birth

This class occurs on the 4th Saturday of the month (3rd Saturday if the 4th falls on a holiday). This 1-time, 3-hour class is designed for expecting parents looking for a solid refresher class and want to be sure THIS birth is the best it can be! We show you: • the 7 cardinal moves your baby needs to make during the birth process, what you can do to help facilitate them... as well as what NOT to do, so you don't wind up interfering with those movements • practical exercises you can do to help promote optimal fetal positioning to help facilitate an easier labor and birth, for both you and baby • how to work with your baby and your body to prevent and/or cope with labor stalls • how your birth partner (whether that’s the father of the baby, a friend or other family member) can perform specific techniques to help bring you comfort so you can receive the best possible support during labor • how to line up your thinking so your mind, emotions, and body are in all in agreement and there won't be an "internal argument" (so to speak) with yourself during the birth... again, making a smoother and safer transition for your Precious Little One. • how to establish a good latch during breastfeeding (if you choose to do so) and promote quick healing from nipple damage... or better yet, avoid it altogether! • simple ways to recognize your baby's communication cues, understand and provide for his/her needs, establishing trust with your baby from the very earliest time in his/her life • simple and very effective ways to calm your baby, promoting better sleep for your whole household • resources to help your make informed choices about birth and early parenting... and much more!! Class fee is $100 and is due on, or before the class date. An alternate payment option is available if needed. The most important thing is that you get the training you need make this the best experience you can. Participation is open to all, no matter where the birth is planned, but REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED, and space is limited. Simply accept this invitation and your spot will be saved for you, or register by visiting www.TheEducatedMama.com. We can hardly wait to see you through this tremendously empowering, and life-changing event! Any further questions can be directed to Jenn the Doula theeducatedmama@gmail.com 407-878-0900

Baby Sign Language

Learn to teach your baby this multi-sensory approach to many of baby's most commonly used words. Signs used in this course are from American Sign Language (ASL). Research shows that teaching hearing babies to sign has many benefits, including (but not limited to): 1. Providing practical language to give baby the ability to communicate well before speaking. 2. Reducing temper tantrums. 3. Increasing vocabulary & language skills. 4. Improving reading & spelling skills and even IQ. 5. Increasing visual attention and joint attention skills. 6. Promoting fine motor skills. 7. Teaching a language that will provide an opportunity to communicate with those who are deaf. 8. Having LOTS of FUN with your baby! You can start signing to your baby at any time!? They usually start signing back within a few months to a year... it sometimes starts slowly, and then picks up very quickly! You will be AMAZED!! The baby pictured here ?developed a spoken, signing and reading vocabulary of over 400 words by 24 months. He could read, say, sign, and finger spell is own first name. He recognized the alphabet in written and phonic form in English, Sign Language and Hebrew. He recognized, read, vocalized and signed: the days of the week, colors, seasons, shapes, sports, foods, and so much more. He also recognized numbers, and counted to 20 on his own, and up to 60 with help. Teaching a baby Sign Language is as easy as playing peek-a-boo as long as you have the vocabulary and consistency. Let us show you how!!

CPR Training

Eric Helms, 13 year veteran of the Orange County Fire Department, with 9 1/2 years experience teaching CPR, and certified through the American Safety & Health Institute, as well as the American Heart Association, will be coming with his state-of-the-art equipment to train YOU in CPR! The skills you learn in a CPR class, much more likely than not, would be used to save the life of someone near and dear to you, rather than a stranger who happens to be sitting next to you in a restaurant. Saving the life of a stranger is no small thing, but when you think of your loves ones... and especially your little ones, isn't it worth your time to learn some simple, but potentially life-saving techniques in the event of an emergency? Be wise. Think ahead. Learn what to do, and how to do it BEFORE an emergency hits! At the end of this class, you will hold a certification, valid for 2 years, in adult, child and infant CPR. You will be trained on the AED (Automated External Defibrillator) and you will have a greater sense of confidence in your abilities to have a powerful impact on the lives of those you love. Open to anyone, but REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED. Registration fee of $35 can be paid at the end of class with cash, check or money order. Questions? Contact Jennifer via TheEducatedMama@gmail.com, or call 407-878-0900.
