Childbirth Education

We know you're busy, that's why we offer a variety of classes to meet your individual needs. Classes are broken up into approachable chunks so that you can pick and choose what works for your family. Expecting(nyc)'s preparation services are geared to empower you, prepare you, and give you realistic expectations of how a hospital, home, or birthing center looks and feels.

Doula Support

Our doulas, whether new or seasoned, all have advanced trainings in Mindfulness-Based Childbirth and Parenting, massage skills for labor and birth, plus much more. We know having a baby here is different than other places, so our goal is to help you identify your ideal birth scenario, give you realistic expectations for the experience, and to help you sort through all extraneous information, including the overwhelming "advice" you've been hearing from everyone.

Lactation Support

For many mothers, breastfeeding is easy and enjoyable right from the start, but for others there may be a few challenges. Breastfeeding may be a natural function, but it does not always come naturally for the mother or the infant. Our experts can help you learn quickly how to make it into a healthful and emotionally rewarding experience for you and your baby.  Breastfeeding challenges are not impossible to overcome with the professional and compassionate help that you will receive from Expecting(nyc).
