Wednesday Workshops

Mindful Parenting - Positive Discipline and Everyday Parenting

Does this sound like you?
Shouldn’t my child be more like those children? This is my fault.
If only I were a better parent.
When will I see an end to this cycle of meltdowns at bedtime?
If only I were more organized, things like this wouldn't happen!

If any of those sound like you and books just aren't getting you there, then you ready to take the first step. Ana Vega uses a unique integration of the latest research on:
- Mindful Parenting, used in clinical settings with parents with 100% success. Based on the famous Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction program, developed by MIT scientist Jon Kabat-Zinn at the University of Massachusetts.

Newborn Photography Basics

From Kendra Greenberg, "When we heard my son's voice for the first time, my husband and I both cried together. What happened after that is a total blur. If not for a few hastily snapped photos I would not remember as much as I do. It was incredible, our little world was expanding. I wish I could have slowed down time to soak in every second." In this Workshop, Kendra will help mothers capture these moments and give tools to document your own birth story. She will provide tips and tricks for taking professional-looking pictures from your hospital bed that you will want to frame, put in an album, and use for your baby announcements all from your smartphone.
