We are very excited to invite you to join a new Wright Mommy & Me class now forming in Santa Monica! This class will be led by Kim-Lan Dovan, MFT, for babies born February to May 2015. The first 8-week session will run from July 2nd – August 20th, 2015. Class will be held on Thursdays from 12:45am-2:15pm. The location will be Cassidy Preschool, 2122 Wilshire Blvd. Santa Monica, CA 90403.
This will be an ongoing class (the same group at the same time for those who choose to continue) until the babies are about one year old. This way, the group becomes bonded and cohesive. We are not able to offer trial classes or make-up classes. We’ll need a minimum of 6 moms to start the class and are offering one free class to you and any friends you refer who join! The enrollment fee for the 8-week session is $320 ($280 for the first session with one free class.)
Session one topics include birth stories and bonding, safety overview (CPR, SIDS, cosleeping, carseats, etc), introducing a bottle, early sleep solutions, 4 month cognitive surge, naps, child care, myths of motherhood, travel, partner issues, sleep, sleep, sleep . . . !
Have questions? Check out our FAQs or email us to let us know. Please note there is 2 hour parking on the side streets around Cassidy as well as metered parking on Wilshire.
