Our postnatal education classes are pure magic. They are full of laughter, tears, education, support and so much more! You are grouped with other moms whose babies were born within a month of each other and our team of highly sought-after professionals in our community present throughout the class series, offering a truly unique and special experience. We talk about the real stuff...the stuff that makes you feel lonely, isolated, and guilty that you're feeling it. We handle the postnatal period with extreme care and take great pride in bringing moms together, providing the support needed, and fostering a bond unlike any other you’ll have as a mom. Our classes are for EVERY 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.
This class was exactly what I needed, but had no idea I needed it. It saved my life as a new mom. I thought I was just meeting other new moms but the classes exceeded all expectations and provided so much more information and guidance than I could have ever imagined. It was the absolute best experience as a new mom and I will cherish the weeks spent in classes forever.
This class truly changed my life. 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!
Motherhood was nothing like I expected it to be and The New Mom School offered a safe and nurturing place where I could be open and honest about my true feelings. I was ashamed to share my struggles on social media and even with my friends so the fact that I had this environment was life-changing. I arrived a ball of nerves on the first day and by the end of the first class, it was like a weight had been lifted and I felt normal for feeling this way. I can't imagine what my experience would have been like as a new mom without The New Mom School.

“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! You might be wondering why you might need classes once your baby arrives. We like to say that postnatal classes are equally, if not more important, than prenatal classes because now the baby is actually here and there are an endless amount of questions and worries that we can help with. We created our pre-registration option so you have a space secured in our classes once the baby arrives. 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.
You’ve survived the newborn phase, now what?! Your baby is growing so quickly and there are so many questions and lots of unchartered territory in the infant phase! Our Infant Mommy and Me class is for babies 3-6 months old and includes all of the information you need for the next stage in your baby’s life. This class series covers an array of topics developmentally appropriate for your growing infant.
This 8-week class series 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. This class will help you with that and so much more. This class series is taught by the incredible Hayley Goldberg, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. It is centered around using positive tools and techniques to gain a deeper understanding of your child’s behavior.
