Our Baby Class’ mission is to build confidence in parenting through a simple, intuitive, and practical approach.
Becoming a parent is one of life’s biggest transitions. Often you find yourself without a community of peers to guide you through. Our Baby Class (OBC) creates that village for you, bringing together families in your community with babies around the same age as yours; together you will have a guiding mentor, your teacher, to help you find your way through some of babyhood’s most challenging topics.
