Becoming Grand is open to everyone, both LWC and non-LWC clients. Please feel free to spread the word!
This 2.5 hour class will provide an exciting opportunity for new grandparents and grandparents-to-be to create a fun and engaging dialogue around the support of their adult children-become-parents and the care of their new grandchildren. Grandparents will learn the latest recommendations in newborn and maternal care, dispelling myths of the past in a non-threatening way. Grandparents are an incomparable source of support, encouragement, and wisdom for parents. Let us help you fully prepare for the journey!
“Having delivered twice at The Birth Center at LWC, I couldn’t be happier with my experiences. I felt so cared for and safe there. Welcoming, comforting, trustworthy—the combination of the homey feel I wanted with professional, experienced midwives and nurses let me relax, knowing I was in good hands. The midwives, always there when we needed them, also seemed to know just when to give us space. When pushing became difficult during my second birth, the midwife quickly assessed the situation and helped me get things back on track. I can’t imagine birthing anywhere else.”
