Before Baby™ is an introductory RIE® course for families expecting, waiting to adopt or thinking about becoming parents.  Before Baby™ is designed to start you on your family building journey with confidence in yourselves as parents and trust in your baby's unique ability to show you the way.


Before Baby™ will help you establish healthy patterns from the beginning of life and includes:  

  • Diapering

  • Bathing

  • Feeding

  • Time Together

  • What crying means and how to respond

  • Sleep for baby and parents

  • Setting up the nursery


Class sizes are kept small so parents can receive meaningful and personalized information. Class registration includes a RIE® Before Baby™ Parent Manual. 

There will be demonstrations and opportunities for practice of caregiving techniques, videos and time for sharing questions and concerns.

The price for this RIE® certified course is $300 per family with two parents or caregivers. Like all my offerings, this course welcomes families with alternative parenting & family structures such as queer & trans families, polyamorous families, and single parents by choice. Custom prices are available for families with more than two main caregivers, which might include coparents, grandparents, or nannies. Financial assistance is available.
