Unfortunately, most prenatal programs fall short.
This leaves parents feeling unable to advocate effectively for themselves during labor and birth and at a greater risk of experiencing birth trauma.
Stressful birth experiences and the mismatch between expectation and reality leave new moms feeling alone in their postpartum recovery, uncertain in their new role as a parent, and may worsen their physical and mental health for years to come.

The best time to sign up for prenatal classes is in your second trimester, around 20 weeks pregnant. This helps the information you will need for birth and infant care stay fresh in your mind by the time you deliver. When possible, schedule your prenatal course so that it completes about 1 month before your estimated due date. If your doctor has said you will likely need to deliver early, then you will want to be finished with your prenatal program even sooner.
Expectant parents between 14 - 26 weeks of pregnancy are eligible for the Layered Living® New Baby Course™. However, the recommended time to start the New Baby Course™ is between 20 - 24 weeks.
Pregnant mothers and families with infants and young children are some of our most vulnerable populations. Their risk of getting sick and having severe complications is far higher than the average population.
The Layered Living® New Baby Course™ is an online prenatal and newborn program that enables expectant parents like you to receive the information you need and the support you want from the comfort and safety of your own home.
The New Baby Course™ is designed for both first-time and repeat expectant parents. If this is your first baby, then everything is new which makes it hard to figure out what you need to know or who your best resources are when challenges pop up.
Parents who are adding to their family, may be seeking a refresher or a better experience than their first time around. No matter your reason, every expectant parent enrolled in the New Baby Course™ will receive the comprehensive prenatal and parenting education AND personalized support you need to have a positive birth experience and a healthy Baby, Mom, and Family from birth and beyond.
The start to parenthood really can be easier and more fun!
