New Moms Support Makeup Policy:
On rare occasions, Mary Esther will be called to a birth during class time. If this happens, a makeup will be held the Tuesday following the final session. Participants will be emailed at least 8 hours before the session Mary Esther has to miss. Aside from this, if you have to miss a moms group session for any reason, Kids at Work will offer participants one makeup in a Kids at Work class as an introduction to Kids at Work programs. Other than the 1 Kids at Work makeup and the makeup due to cancellation, there are no other makeups for New Moms Talk Groups.
with Mary Esther Malloy, Mindful Birth NY
Birth is a profound passage into parenthood for both a mother and her partner. Mindful Birth NY classes offer mothers an appreciation of normal birth and many ways to handle labor. And we also offer partners a rounded preparation for the intense work of supporting a woman through labor. This includes a deep understanding of how birth works, practical ways to support a laboring woman through the different phases of labor and any challenges that might arise, tips on preparing for a home or hospital birth, ideas for navigating hospitals, hands-on practice with massage and more. Couples devote extra time to birth preparation with a Mindful Birth class, and find that having a host of strategies makes it time well spent no matter the course of their labors.
