Looking to get the low down on a specific early parenting topic? The Mini-class is designed for you! O'Nell or Jackie will focus on the material that is most interesting to you and make sure all your questions get answered - in the comfort of your own home. Our mini-classes are about 2 to 3 hours long and are full of information, products, ideas and practical solutions to help ease you into your parenting journey. We travel throughout the San Francisco North Bay Area and are available on weekdays, evenings and weekends. For an additional fee, we can host you at Brigid's Well in Sebastopol.
Get ready for life at home with twins! We will help you prepare for the logistics of feeding, sleeping, nursery set up and more, so you can spend your time falling in love with your new little bundles of joy. As seasoned postpartum doulas with twins experience, we have seen many families both overwhelmed and overjoyed with raising their little ones. We want to support your unique parenting style and help you maximize your rest, connection and sanity.
We'll teach you tricks of the trade about feeding (breast, bottle or both), realistic sleep expectations, schedules/routines, and nursery set up specific to those bringing home two!
We recommend scheduling the class at least 6 weeks before the EDD since twins often come early. Cost $250.
Expanding your family? We'll help get you set up to welcome the newest family member with practical advice and guidance to help everyone feel supported, seen and loved through this transition. You didn't think you could love anyone more than your first child, but we promise your heart will double in size as you welcome a new sibling. This transition doesn't also have to double the chaos and exhaustion.
We'll help you assess realistic expectations of the big brother or sister depending on their age and give you tips for helping them adjust emotionally. If you're in a relationship, we've got plenty of ideas of how to stay connected with your partner even though your attention will be changing. We'll teach simple self-care routines for parents that will help you stay nourished so you have energy to give your growing family. Also, we'll help you craft a personalized support plan and schedule/routine so you can maximize rest, connection, and normalcy even in the midst of a big change. Cost $250.
