Our Baby Class & Better Baby Class
Center for Babywearing Studies Instructor
Offering classes to expectant parents and new families in the Philadelphia area. Empowering each family with the confidence and knowledge to make informed choices through pregnancy and the first years of parenthood.
“Thanks to you and Bradley we had our fully natural birthing experience. The OJ after was the cherry on top. It was amazing and so much more than I ever expected.”
“Lynn is an exceptional Bradley Method teacher. Her Bradley Method childbirth classes helped my husband and I feel well prepared for our natural birth. Her own experiences and stories helped us understand all of our options and gave us confidence. The relaxation and coaching techniques helped us mentally prepare throughout the pregnancy and labor. We highly recommend her class.”
“I had the pleasure of having Lynn as a teacher during our Bradley Method classes. It was a great class and she is a great teacher. Most people take this class if they are interested in having a natural child birth but the content of the class is much more than relaxation techniques. The class empowers you to take control of your pregnancy by giving you the information to make well-informed decisions about your birth plan. Lynn is well versed and very knowledgeable about the many facets of child birth. She creates a very welcoming environment that is fun and informative. I highly recommend this class to any couple who is expecting and I highly recommend Lynn be your teacher!”
“The Newborn Babywearing Workshop was worth every penny! Both Lynn and Eileen were knowledge[able] and great teachers. They covered way more information than I expected, and did so in a fun manner… I feel more confident with the carrier I own and know which ones I will have in my future thanks to this class, and how to use them appropriately. I recommend this class to all parents and can’t sing its praises enough.”
