We also offer educational and learning opportunities that include one on one sessions with a trained lifecoach or registered nurse. The one on one sessions are part of our Women of Worth (WOW) earn while you learn program. They are offered in both English and Spanish, and are at no charge. As a WOW participant you earn Mommy Money/Daddy Dollars that you can use in our Boutique. Our Boutique is full of maternity clothes, diapers, wipes, baby clothes, blankets, and larger baby items like: swings, pack n plays, bouncers, high chairs.
We also offer classes and workshops throughout the month. Classes are taught by physicians, nurse practitioners, midwives, doulas, lactation consultants, dieticians, massage therapists, teachers, and many others.
One of our most popular sessions is our Mommy Support Group and Grupo de Mamas. Mommy Support Group is typically held on the 1st and 3rd Thursday of the month, and Grupo de Mamas is held on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays. Both groups meet from 11 am – 12 noon. A lite healthy lunch is provided at no charge.
