School for new moms
every new mom deserves to feel confident, cared for, and connected. We provide the tools and support you need to overcome the challenges of the newborn phase and flourish in the fourth trimester and beyond.
The New Mom School Newborn Class; a 10-week program organized by baby’s birth month to provide you with support, education and community through the fourth trimester and beyond.
Our classes are a judgment-free zone where the mommy wars are left at the door and moms support and empower one another regardless of their parenting style. Whether you use disposable or cloth diapers, breastfeed or formula feed, co-sleep or work full time, your class will become your lifeline."
Enroll using your due date so we can reserve a class spot for you alongside other new moms whose babies are born the same month.
Let us know when your baby arrives and we’ll give you a start date for your first class, usually around 3-5 weeks postpartum.
Join us at our Newport Beach studio and meet your expert instructor and fellow moms experiencing the same phase of motherhood.
Research shows that as many as 1 in 5 new mothers experience some type of perinatal mood and anxiety disorder, while 7 in 10 women hide or downplay their symptoms.
I recommend The New Mom School to all of my pregnant patients. Whether you are on your first pregnancy journey or adding a new baby to the family, at New Mom School you will learn skills and get support through one of life’s most challenging transitions.
The transition into being a new mom is joyous but can be tremendously overwhelming and isolating. A new mom’s health and emotional state impacts her newborn’s health and having the right support following a child’s birth is essential for any new mom. I recommend The New Mom School to every new mother.
The postnatal period is delicate and many new mothers aren’t able to obtain the support they need following the birth of their baby. The repercussions of this lack of support can have a negative effect on mom and baby. The New Mom School provides this much-needed service that medical professionals aren’t able to. I recommend this community to all new mothers.
The New Mom School provides an unparalleled environment of friendship, encouragement and education, so new moms can bond with one another as well as their new babies. I absolutely recommend The New Mom School to any new mom – you need a community to not only share in the joys of motherhood but also support you through the inevitable challenges!
After having two children myself, I understand the great transition that occurs after childbirth. Not only is a mom healing, adjusting to hormone fluctuations, and dealing with sleep deprivation, she is also learning how to best care for her newborn child. I wish I had something like The New Mom School when I was postpartum. I know I would have benefited from the weekly gatherings of women going through the same challenges. I am especially impressed with the content that they provide from lactation support to addressing mental health concerns. I recommend their classes to all my patients, and I love hearing about the long-term friendships that develop.
Upon starting OB/GYN practice in Newport Beach, I learned about “The New Mom School.” I was immediately impressed by the tools and camaraderie that this offers to my patients in the postpartum period, and I highly recommend that they sign up during their pregnancy. Much emphasis is placed on the third trimester when we see pregnant women weekly. As obstetricians, we realize the need for more support and guidance after birth, and The New Mom School helps bridge that gap. I wholeheartedly recommend it to all of my pregnant patients.
Becoming a mother can be overwhelming and isolating. Having other moms with whom to laugh, cry, and commiserate is essential to mental health. The New Mom School provides much-needed community and has been a lifeline for so many of my patients.
Our 10-week, OB-recommended Newborn Class is designed to provide answers to all the questions that you encounter in the first 3 months of motherhood—even the questions you never knew you’d have! We encourage you to use your due date to register while pregnant so we can secure your space in class for once baby arrives.
An 8-week mommy & me class class for moms and babies 3-6 months old covering an array of topics developmentally appropriate for this age range. Moms are encouraged to register for this class as a continuation of their newborn class or on its own if you weren’t able to attend the newborn class.
The fun continues, Playgroups style! Come join us each week in our new learning playroom where all the magic happens! A more casual, informal version of our infant classes, our playgroups are a place to learn and grow– for both babies and parents!
Structured by age group, each week allows your child to explore and grow through play with others close in age. The best part: while your babies and toddlers are exploring and discovering the classroom with their peers, you get to meet and socialize with other moms in the same phase of motherhood! Great for babies; Great for mamas!
Each week, sit back, relax and watch your littles deep dive into play with purposeful, developmentally appropriate activities while your experienced instructor leads discussion and learning about curriculum topics. Your leader will help guide you and your children as they grow from infants to toddlers. All of our topics are based on all your most pressing baby and toddler questions!
This 8-week class series meets once per week and includes an incredible amount of education and so many tools to help you connect with your child so you can continue to build the joyful and trusting relationship you always hoped for. And for some of you, you just want to know how to make the tantrums stop and have a more agreeable and flexible child so you can have a happier home.
The birth of your second child isn’t quite like the birth of your first. You have so much more confidence in the newborn phase yet it doesn’t come without its challenges.
Our Second Time Moms class covers an array of topics to help support you, your older child, and your new baby through the transition. Come learn, laugh, and connect with other moms who are sharing the same experience. This class is just for mom and the new baby!
Join other breastfeeding moms to have all of your questions answered and challenges addressed. We can’t wait to help you and your little one on your breastfeeding journey!
Our weekly, complimentary Breastfeeding Support Group is led by Internationally Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC), Shelly Jacobs.
