The banner hanging up in the BabyLove office has the tagline, “Exceptional Independent Education for All.” That’s always been the end goal of BabyLove; to provide independent classes that are more affordable options and to work on increasing access to families who might not otherwise have other independent options within their reach. I started my career teaching in county hospitals and working with a very wide variety of families going through very different situations. I was very fortunate in both places to have supportive directors who believed in evidence-based education, as well. I loved the variety and still have a passion to bring positive, informative, and empowering information to ALL families, not just a few.
To allow me to further extend the original mission of BabyLove, I am excited to announce that, in addition to being a provider for the UCare S.E.A.T.S. Program, most of the birth and baby classes offered at BabyLove are now covered by UCare for expecting mothers who have UCare coverage. Classes covered include:
- Evening Lamaze Series
- Weekend Lamaze Series
- Ready for Birth™: 3 Week Childbirth Preparation
- Ready for Birth™: Express Childbirth Class
- Labor Skills Intensive Workshop
- Planned Cesarean Preparation
- Better Breastfeeding!
- Ready for Baby™: Newborn Basics
- Car Seat Safety
Additionally, we will be offering two classes in Spanish: The one day Ready For Birth Express Class and a Combination Breastfeeding/ Newborn Care class. This will again help even more families get quality information.
