Postpartum planning and preparation is more critical than ever during the COVID-19 pandemic. Social distancing requirements mean that new parents cannot rely on the in-person support of family, friends, and overnight care providers like postpartum doulas. You CAN do this! And planning will help make a smoother, easier transition to parenthood.
Jada Shapiro, founder of boober and Birth Day Presence, will help you learn more about what postpartum and the fourth trimester really looks like and will help you create your own postpartum guidelines to ensure that you have the supplies and understanding to heal your postpartum body, get maximal sleep, eat well, keep you and your baby safe during the pandemic, know where to find expert virtual lactation consultants, postpartum doulas, mental health therapists and more, and devise ways to stay connected to yourself, your baby and you partner (if applicable) through these challenging times so that you can thrive through this transition to parenthood under COVID-19 restrictions.
Our live and interactive courses are for those who are looking for the same interactive experience as our classroom setting, but in the comfort of your own home. This is *not* the same as watching free videos on YouTube. Participants join a Zoom classroom and are encouraged to share their audio and video for Q&A, discussion and meeting other couples! Couples are asked to join from a single desktop, laptop, tablet or phone if they are in the same location.
This course is available for "remote" learning and will be available to anyone with access to an internet device with a microphone (this includes most models of computers, tablets). Classes will take place with a "Live" instructor at the date/times listed below.
Upon registration, the instructor will send along additional information about how to log-on and participate in the class.

Cancellations made 3 or more days in advance will receive a full credit for a rescheduled date with this provider
The school highly recommend that students schedule any prenatal classes or workshops to end by the time they are 36 weeks pregnant. If they schedule class for after they begin their 36th week, they run the risk of having their baby and missing their class without a refund. In the event that they go into labor before 36 weeks, they may apply 90% of the class cost to another class (i.e.: CPR) or service (i.e.: postpartum doula care).
In the special circumstances of a mother-to-be being placed on bed rest or delivering before 36 weeks before the beginning of a class series, they may apply 90% of the class fee to another class or service at Birth Day Presence. If bed rest or delivery happens while they are in the middle of a series (and they would have completed their classes before they began their 36th week), they may apply the fees from the unused portion of the class toward another class or service at Birth Day Presence.
Birth Day Presence is not responsible for providing make-ups or issuing any credit for classes missed as a result of scheduling conflicts, vacations, illness, emergencies, or other circumstances beyond our control.
