Classes & Meet Ups

Group Philosophy

Modern Mama respects each person's unique pathway through pregnancy, labor, postpartum, and raising a family. Please join us and share your experiences, knowledge, and personal perspective. Please honor others' choices and make connections with an open heart and mind. We have so much to learn from one another and so much to celebrate in our differences! 

Please Register

Registering for classes and meet ups is important so that we may directly communicate any changes made. You will be notified via the registration system should a class or meet up be canceled. Classes and meet ups need at least 2 registrants by 24 hours prior in order for the group to run. Classes or meet ups may be canceled last minute if the facilitator is called to a birth; we will give as much notice as possible! 

New Parents Group

Free

Our bi-weekly new parenting group is an informal way of connecting with other parents who are also finding their way! We strive to create a welcoming and informal gathering space for parents to share ideas and wisdom on parenting--or just hang out with some other adults.  All genders of parents welcome; ideal for babies under 1 year old.   

This event is on hold through October 2019.

Lactation Drop-In with Rachel Simpson, IBCLC

Free

Nursing your baby can be a joyful and satisfying experience...and one that comes with many challenges!  This bi-weekly drop in is a way for you to meet other nursing parents and access professional support from a lactation consultant and/or midwife.  Every body, baby, and situation is different; we strive to support you in your individual nursing goals. Are you a veteran breast/chest feeder?  Please feel free to join us with your support and wisdom.  

This event is on hold through October 2019.

Childbirth Education: Refresh for Number 2+

$80 / pair

This three hour class prepares you for your birth beyond the first labor.  Labor patterns can be quite different with a second baby; learn what to expect, when to head to your place of birth, review coping strategies, and prepare for welcoming a new little one into your growing family.

Childbirth Education: Prepared Home Birth

$200 / pair

Our one day 8 hour course focuses on contextualizing birth as a normal physiologic process that has emotional, social, and spiritual importance.  We prepare clients and their birthing partners by reviewing the physiology of labor and birth, as well as discussing the many variations of normal labor in recognition that every birth experience is unique.  Attendees develop confidence in their bodies and the process, and the class learns strategies for managing pain and staying relaxed and calm through labor and birth. Partners are active participants and learn ways to support the laboring person both physically and emotionally. Birth videos, activities, hands on practice, and discussion are all a part of our day together, and you will leave the class with a folder of valuable resources, notes, and tips.
