We are looking forward to The Busy Bump Baby Shower on September 23rd and all the great exhibitors we have coming! They have some amazing services and products to showcase to all our new and expectant moms in attendance!
The Childbearing Society is an exhibitor at the Busy Bump Baby Shower and Stephanie Ondrack is sharing some more information about their services for expectant mom and couples below.
Business Name: The Childbearing Society
1. What kind of products and/ or services do you offer?
Prenatal Classes mainly, but also breastfeeding classes & clinics, parenting circles, healthy pregnancy classes, and special workshops for twins, home birth, and refreshers.
2. What is the price point?
Full price is $285, which includes Prenatal Classes, the Healthy Pregnancy Class, and four postpartum parenting circles. We also offer reduced single mother's rates and low income rates.
3. How long have you been operating and how did you start?
We were founded in 1973 by a group of doctors and nurses who felt that prenatal classes could be better than what the hospitals were offering at the time.
4. What is your favourite part of what you do? What is the biggest
I love normalizing birth for people, reducing the fear, and empowering families to make their own decisions. I love surprising people with information they had never encountered before. And I love fostering more understanding between parents and their babies--helping
families connect and settle in together with more trust and less stress. The biggest challenge is navigating the diverse range of families and viewpoints in each class, helping everyone--from those planning Caesarean births to those planning backyard water births-- feel included and empowered, without alienating anyone.
5. If you’re a mom, what is one thing you wish you knew when you were pregnant/what advice would you give to a new mom?
Trust your instincts! Relax, don't worry about doing anything "right", and just listen to your baby. Take all "expert" advice with a grain of salt and have faith that moms and babies have been figuring all this out together for millions of years without any books or pundits to tell them what to do.
