Back to basics …

February 2011
It occurred to us the other day, when we had a really long waiting list for one
classes, that the time had come to review how effectively we were serving the educational
needs of new and expectant parents.
Looking at the waiting lists for nearly ALL of our CORE and regular classes, it
meant one thing; getting back to basics and scheduling more classes in 2011.
Over the coming months, you’ll see an expansion of our CORE offerings in Childbirth
classes. We’re slowly increasing the number of these CORE classes, as well as introducing
We’re also scheduling regular Open Playdates, so keep an eye on our calendar for
weekly times. On the horizon are support groups for Dads/partners, along with one
for parents of Twins and for those parents who have adopted or are considering adopting.
So we just wanted to let you know that ‘we’re on it’. We know the need is there
and we’re working hard to expand the net.
If you have an idea for a class or would like to run a class at natural resources,
please don’t hesitate to get in touch; we’d love to hear from you.
Stay warm! Enjoy the snow…if it ever arrives 😉

Pregnant Moms’ Drop-in Group

Every Tuesday, starting March 1st, we’ll be welcoming pregnant Moms (in all stages
facilitated by our own Beth Rees (NR Store Manager and Birth & Postpartum Doula).

Being pregnant is such a sweet and exciting time, but it’s often difficult to know
where to turn for support; from finding good prenatal care, writing a birth plan,
building a support network, staying healthy, getting the right maternity bra to
just staying on an even keel with all the hormonal/life changes taking place.

This drop-in group is especially for expectant Moms, at every stage of pregnancy.
We’ll talk openly about the roller coaster ride through pregnancy into motherhood
and explore the different phases of pregnancy, labor/birth and postpartum period.
You’ll also find helpful tools and tips from other expecting Moms and our facilitator,
Beth Rees, a Birth & Postpartum Doula, on the following topics:

* Preparation of birth & baby
* Changing bodies & hormones
* Birth options & selecting care providers
* Relationships & Sex
* Nutrition during pregnancy, labor/birth, & postpartum
* Newborn care & parenting
* Herbal medicine during pregnancy, birth & postpartum
* Community Resources
* What you need in your birth & diaper bag- A product review
* Planning your postpartum support team

February & March

March is National Endometriosis Awareness Month

Endometriosis is a painful reproductive and immunological disease in which
tissue similar to the uterine lining (endometrium) migrates outside the womb
and implants in other areas of the body. The Endometriosis Research Center
offers a vast database of accurate materials on every aspect of Endometriosis
to practitioners, researchers, patients of all ages and their loved ones, and
all those interested in the disease.

Introducing …

We hope you’re enjoying this series of e-intros and getting a feel for who we are.
We love what we do here at natural resources…especially the part where we get
to cuddle your babies :) This week, please meet the very wonderful Monica Zimmerman,
MFA, CLC

For the past 15 years, Monica has served as an Educator, Doula, Midwife and Lactation
Consultant. She has worked extensively with a variety of parenting communities
a private lactation consultancy, offering in home/over the phone/skype breastfeeding
support.

A note from Monica:

“I live in the beautiful Redwoods with my lovely partner, Alane; a Family Therapist
and Horse Woman and my stepson, Asher, who is 10 years old. I am in a place of
constant learning and discovery of what is and what could be. Children are the
best teachers … if only we will listen”

Monica also works part-time here at the natural resources store, helping new and
expectant parents through the parenting adventure. Next month, Monica will be launching
an amazing 4-part workshop for LGBTQ families/parents/parent(s)-to-be. The workshop
we encourage you to pass it on!
