Our postnatal education classes are full of laughter, tears, education, support and so much more! Our team of highly sought-after professionals in our community visit throughout the class series, which truly adds something special to your experience. We take great pride in bringing moms together and helping them grow into the best moms they can be. In our newborn classes, we foster a bond unlike any other you’ll have as a mom.
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.
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!
Saving grace. Those are the two words that would best describe what The New Mom School classes were for me – they were my saving grace.
I loved this class! I didn't know what to expect when I signed up but it has exceeded my expectations. I have met amazing friends, gained a lasting support group and have learned so much about raising my son.
I was blown away by the amount of information and knowledge I was able to gain in my classes. And on top of that, I was able to meet an amazing group of mommies...which led to lunches together, play dates, birthdays, and even vacation! This class truly changed my life.

“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.”
Congratulations on your upcoming arrival! Now that you’re pregnant, we strongly recommend pre-registering for your New Mom School class that you'll join after your baby is born. Registering while you are expecting secures your space in a class right when your baby arrives and allows us to place you with other moms whose babies are closest in age to yours. And registering while you are pregnant allows you to take advantage of our early-bird registration fee!
After your baby is born, your life changes overnight. You are sleep deprived, overwhelmed, emotional, excited, worried if what your baby is doing is normal and feel a vast array of other emotions. Nothing can really prepare you for having a newborn, but having support from other moms going through exactly what you are can make a world of difference. Our Newborn Mommy and Me class is organized by your baby's birth month and will become your lifeline as you tackle the exciting, yet overwhelming, journey of being a new mom.

This class series covers an array of topics developmentally appropriate for your growing infant.
Our sensory classes blend an activity-based curriculum for babies beginning at 7 months old with an educational curriculum for mom. Get ready, it gets messy and so much fun! Classes are focused on structured play to help stimulate your child's sensory processing skills for a solid developmental foundation.
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.

Come learn, laugh and connect with other moms who are sharing the same experience. This class is just for mom and new baby.
