I am broadening Shining Light’s reach beyond Pittsburgh and out into the rest of the world with Google Helpouts. It’s an online tool for live, interactive, web-based classes. They can be taught at a scheduled time or they can be scheduled to suit the student’s needs.
My first offering on Google Helpouts is: Great Expectations, or, I’m Pregnant, Now What? This is the online version of the group class we currently offer at Shining Light for early pregnancy.
The class description:
Are you newly pregnant or trying to conceive a baby? Do you want to know more about what to expect in early pregnancy? This is one of the most important class you can take.
Your care provider (doctor or midwife) won’t schedule your first appointment until you are 8-12 weeks pregnant. Now what?
Welcome to your first trimester! I’ll ease your fears and help you set reasonable expectations for your first trimester and beyond.
Morning sickness, fatigue, weight gain, and your growing belly will all be discussed over the course of this class.
If you haven’t chosen a care provider yet, or have simply chosen to stay with you regular OB-gynecologist, I will fill you in on your options and give you some good questions to ask of them. Choosing a care provider is one of the most important decisions you can make for your pregnancy.
Appointments, tests, weight gain, the “big” ultrasound, maternity clothes, baby movements, uncomfortable sleeping… all of this comes with the second and third trimesters. I’ll cover all of these and give you some tools to help you make appropriate choices for your pregnancy.
I’ll let you know what to expect and how you can cope with the discomforts of pregnancy. We will also talk about pre-term labor, warning signs, and when to call your care provider.
Do bring any questions that you may have. I’m happy to answer them all.
Let me help you ease into your pregnancy with grace and get ready to birth with confidence.
