Prepare for baby & beyond

Preparing for baby can be overwhelming. Parenting seems to be a constant state of learning new things as your baby is always changing. Take a few hours, with your partner, and come learn with me. Classes and events happen monthly on all things prenatal, postpartum, milestones, and more!
