The best thing about these classes: they are online! However, it’s not some boring monotonous view of images or just hearing my talk. It would be like sitting in a group class but instead you are in your bed or on your couch or wherever you choose to be.
You will still meet new people and join a community of expectant parents in the chat room and on the conference line. Plus, it’s winter; Stay out of the cold and snow. Don’t worry about potential class cancellations due to bad weather.
These classes are especially important for mothers on limited activity or bedrest.
See you in class!
