BabyLove has been open for almost two months already! In these past few weeks, Veronica and I have had the chance to meet so many wonderful people, and begin teaching some amazing classes. One of the main reasons we opened BabyLove is to be able to have a space that is OURS. We have the flexibility to move and change things as needed, and we are trying our very hardest to make classes attainable for every family. We’ve been listening to what you have been saying, and here are a few things we’ve changed in response:
1. Baby Happy Hour-One recurring comment we’ve heard from moms about our Baby Café is that they really want to attend, but Tuesday morning doesn’t work for everyone. We have cleared a few days on our schedule, and we will be having our first EVENING Baby Café Wednesday, November 9th, beginning at 7pm. We hope this can be a time for moms who can’t make it in the morning to come and ask questions in a comfortable atmosphere, and build a community of other nursing moms. Other dates are listed on our website!
2. Combined Cloth Diapering and Baby Wearing Class- We know our cloth diapering and baby wearing classes are very important, and extremely worthwhile for parents to attend. We also realize that committing two extra evenings to attend classes can be inconvenient. In the BabyLove spirit of keeping excellent education and information affordable and attainable, we have combined the cloth diapering and baby wearing classes into one fun and exciting night. Baby wearing and cloth diapering are two topics that are loaded with options. While doing your own research and attending other workshops can be helpful, we know you will leave our class feeling confident you’ve gotten un-biased help with every option available to you. A little bit of time in this class can save you a lot of time, headache, and money! Please visit the class page for a list of upcoming class dates and registration information.
3. 5 Week Sunday Evening Lamaze Series- The end of the weekend is usually a laid back and uneventful time. After thinking over what days would work best for a majority of people, we’ve decided to get rid of our Monday evening series and begin a Sunday evening series. We will still have our Thursday night Lamaze series as 6 weeks (link to dates), but this new Sunday series will be one less week. This series will still be 15 hours (5 consecutive evenings from 6-9pm), because we do not want to cut out any important information. Veronica originally taught a Sunday night series when she first started teaching independently 3 years ago, and we think it will be a great option for families. By being able to present a variety of times and dates to families for childbirth classes, we hope that more people will find a class that works for them.
Veronica and I are very excited about these changes, and welcome comments and feedback. These are just a few things we’ve talked through and improved, but the beauty of having our own studio is that we can constantly change and better our offerings. We hope you’re excited as well! Maybe we’ll see you at our Baby Happy Hour, or you know someone who is having trouble finding a good day to take classes, and the Sunday series is perfect for them. Let us know your thoughts!
