Course Description

Discover What Life With a Newborn Will Really Be Like

During Boot Camp for New Moms, new mamas (and their babies) share real-world insight, advice and experiences about navigating the first months of parenthood. You'll hear how different women and families handle the challenges that almost all new parents face:

  • Work/life balance; handling family and friends.
  • Going back to work, or staying home, and childcare. 
  • Parenting as a team.
  • Breastfeeding, or not, and what that looks like in the real world.
  • Changes new moms face (physical, hormonal, mental, etc.) and how these changes impact everything.
  • A new dad's different trajectory and how he bonds with baby.
  • Reinforcing your relationship before, and reconnecting after, the baby arrives.

You'll leave Boot Camp:

  • Feeling more confident.
  • With your questions answered.
  • Armed with strategies to make the transition to motherhood smoother.
  • Knowing you're not alone.
  • Ready to form a parenting team with your partner.
  • Understanding what dad-to-be is going through and how to support him.
  • With real-world insight and solutions to common challenges.

A trained Coach (also a Boot Camp graduate and mom) facilitates the discussion. This is a moms-only class.

We recommend mom-to-be attend around the 28th week of pregnancy, but any time is a good time! The workshop is $20 for each mom-to-be and includes the book “Crash Course for Moms-To-Be.”
