So many of us spend so much time preparing for the birth of our baby but we forget that the real work starts when we bring that baby home and have to keep it (and ourselves) alive!

This class covers everything that you need to know about your baby’s first few weeks and months of life so that you enter parenthood feeling more informed, confident and prepared.

You will learn:

  • What normal newborn behaviour consists of
  • How to care for your newborn
  • How to diaper and bathe your newborn
  • How to comfort and bond with your baby
  • The importance of early skin-to-skin contact
  • Infant feeding basics
  • Infant sleep basics

We encourage both parents to attend. Our small group size allows the teacher to personalize the class to your needs and questions. Resources and emailed materials are provided.

  • Yonit Jungreis, West End Mamas Postpartum DoulaYonit Jungreis (she/her)Doula

    Yonit is a CAPPA trained and certified postpartum doula. She has always been drawn to work with children and families. Before she became a doula, she was a child and youth worker for over 10 years, working with children and families from all walks of life. She found inspiration from her clients on a daily basis.

    After her own pregnancies and the birth of her three children, she was inspired to become a doula as she realized that positive hands-on support is essential during pregnancy and in the postpartum period. This was something she immediately connected with.

    Yonit sees herself as the “Mary Poppins” of doulas. She walks into homes and focuses on brightening the family’s day, whatever it may look like for them, each family with their own personal story and circumstances. She has the ability to adapt and adjust to their needs and offer support to them so they can get comfortable, feel confident and stronger, and acquire the necessary skills during the postpartum period.

    Yonit believes in the importance of supporting and empowering new parents and their families and in simplifying the postpartum period. For her, it is an honour and a privilege to be involved in a family’s most intimate of settings and supporting them during such a memorable time in their lives. Providing care and support is a rewarding experience for Yonit and she cherishes every moment that she spends with the families.
