From getting pregnant to registries to pregnancy to those first early months and beyond, bringing little children into this world requires love (of course!) and time and knowledge! I don’t know about you, but when I was in the early stages of pregnancy, I felt overwhelmed at the number of books and advice columns I found out the internet. And in some cases, providing conflicting information – talk about confusing! In preparing for the arrival of your little bundle (or in helping a friend to prepare), Sharp Mamas can help take the guesswork out of those pre-pregnancy jitters and early moments with the newest member of your family.
Created by “Mama Kel” (Kelley Farrell – mom of five!) and “Mama Dara” (Dara Tarkowski – mom of three, including one set of twins!), Sharp Mamas is a a one-stop destination for education that takes mom and dad from pre-pregnancy through the toddler years. Tailored for your needs, the sessions offered go above and beyond what you might find in a more traditional hospital program. They can cover topics like Trying To Conceive, Choosing Childcare, and Toddler Basics in settings one on one, as a couple or even in small group classes. They also host events at various locations throughout the city in conjunction with clinical partners.
Maybe you think you have it all figured out and perhaps you’ve even found the perfect person to care for your baby when you head back to work after maternity leave, but Sharp Mamas also offers Nanny & Caregiver Training. Unlike the requirements for a day care or a pre-school, there is no official licensing or certification process for professional nannies. Sharp Mamas helps to train your Nanny or Caregiver to understand child development and know what your particular child’s cues are. I love this training because I think it’s the perfect way to ensure that the person you chose for your baby cares for them in the way that you do. Transitioning into a nanny situation helps to make sure that you (and they!) are prepared.
Be sure to check out their Infant Care Basics Workshops that will prepare you for all things baby as you get ready to welcome your newborn! Whether you’re looking for help deciding on what to put on your registry (like which stroller to buy or what diaper bag is the most convenient) or you just need a boost in confidence to tackle that newborn stage, Sharp Mamas can help you. Their sessions or gift certificates make a great unique gift for a baby shower as well. I know about ten babies being born this year and would love to have had something like this when I was first starting our family!
