Gentle Sleep Solutions for Tired Families is open to everyone, both LWC and non-LWC clients. Please feel free to spread the word!
Join Erica Desper of Confident Parenting for an interactive discussion about sleep and how to get more of it! This workshop is open to parents of newborns through age 5 and consists of both lecture and questions and answers, so bring yours! Topics covered include laying a foundation for healthy sleep, creating an ideal schedule, hands-on ways to gradually wean from assisting your child to sleep and co-sleeping, and hands-on ways to reduce or eliminate overnight feeds.
“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.”
