The Fourth Trimester

NEXT CLASS: Saturday, December 16th at our office in Moscow

What is The Fourth Trimester?
Have any of the following thoughts crossed your mind lately?
“I don’t know how to change a diaper!”
“Just how many bodily fluids should I expect to deal with at the same time?”
“What happens at all those check-ups in the first year?”
“I can’t decide what kind of ice cream I want tonight… how am I supposed to make decisions for another human!?”
We’ve heard more and more parents lately say they don’t feel fully equipped to face life with a newborn. We want you to enter this time with joy and confidence, so we have your back.
The Fourth Trimester is a three-hour class specifically geared at preparing you for, you guessed it, the “fourth trimester” – the first three months postpartum – and beyond.

Our next session is Saturday, December 16, 2017 from 1:00-4:00pm at our office in Moscow.

What is taught? 

Topics we will cover include:
– New baby care skills, like changing diapers, burping, soothing, swaddling, bathing and more
– Postpartum care for the birthing woman – what to expect those first weeks to look like
– Realistic expectations for the postpartum time and tips for adjusting to your new lifestyle
– Self-care ideas for parents
– What to expect in well-baby visits, decisions you’ll be expected to make, and how to make them from a place of informed choice

This class will be taught by the Palouse Women’s Wellness birth and postpartum doulas, with special guest Mary Miller. Mary is a retired family care nurse who will provide special insight on working with your care providers for a happy, healthy transition through infancy.


The cost for this class is $30 per pair of attendees. (This might look like two parents, two grandparents, a parent and additional caregiver, etc. Your call!)
