Summer Workshops & Events

HYPNOBABIES CHILDBIRTH CLASS
Hypnobabies is a very successful 6 week, 3-hours per week, complete childbirth education course that was adapted with permission from Master Hypnotherapist Gerald Kein’s “Painless Childbirth Program” techniques rather than using simple relaxation, breathing or guided imagery. This allows our Hypno-Moms to enjoy “eyes-open childbirth hypnosis”, easily remaining deeply in hypnosis while walking, talking and changing positions; being as mobile as they would like to be during childbirth. Hypnobabies is well-known for helping women to create much shorter, easier and more comfortable labors, making childbirth the joyful experience it was meant to be. Class is taught by instructor, Charmian Redwood CHT.

Cost: $495 per couple
When: Fridays June 8th – July 20th (excluding June 29th) from 6-9pm

Pre–registration is required. You can register for the Hypnobabies Childbirth Class by calling the instructor at (808) 344-9932. Class is for moms with due dates from August to November 2018. For more information regarding this class, please visit www.hypnobabies-classes.com.

ADOPTION BASICS WORKSHOP
If you’re considering adoption but feel overwhelmed by all the decisions or don’t know where to start, I hope you’ll join us. Joanna Lovinger will answer the most frequently asked questions and present information about cost, wait times, fears and concerns, etc. As an adoptive mother, her only agenda is to provide the facts and figures about adoption, without any “hard sell” or manipulation. We want people to make up their own mind about how and whether or not to pursue adoption. No affiliation with any law firm or adoption agency.

Cost: $30 per couple or $50 per couple
When: Thursday, July 19th from 5-7pm

Pre–registration is required. You can register for the Adoption Basics Workshop by calling the store at (818) 380-3111 or through the online registration page.

Babywearing 101

Babywearing 101 is designed for expectant and new parents who are interested in learning the basics of babywearing. Studies and Mama’s instinct tell us babies are meant to be held and babywearing makes it convenient and can free up Mom or Dads hands when needed!

Babywearing 101 covers:

  • An overview of the most popular carrier types which may include ring slings, Asian style carriers (Mei Tais), soft structure carriers (buckle carriers), stretchy wraps and woven wraps
  • Demonstrations of the carrier types
  • Positioning and safety

There will be time at the end to try on carriers. Feel free to bring your baby with you.  We will have weighted dolls to use in trying on the carriers.

This class is ideal for those with little or no experience babywearing. You will leave ready to choose and use your first baby carrier.

Cost: $20 per person

Please call (818) 380-3111 or email info@shopthehaven.com to be added to the interest list.

Child Passenger Safety Class

With so many different makes, models and types of car seats coupled with so many different makes and models of vehicles, choosing a car seat for your child and understanding how to use it properly can be a “daunting” task for parents and caregivers. Just reading the manual can often seem like trying to read a foreign language.

This class will provide education on the “Safest Car Seats” for your baby/growing child, information on used car seats, how to properly use your car seat, and why you should not use aftermarket products.
We will also provide education about air bag safety, loose cargo inside the car, the safest areas in the vehicle, the controversy between the LATCH system and the vehicle belt, the California Child Passenger Laws, common safety hazards, the American Academy of Pediatric (AAP) recommendations, traveling with your child (including air travel) and how to travel in the car with pets.

*We will also demonstrate how a pregnant mommy can better protect her baby and herself when driving/riding in a car.

Cost: $40 per couple

Please call (818) 380-3111 or email info@shopthehaven.com to be added to the interest list.
