The program is made up of three separate workshops, each two hours long, that can be taken in sequence or individually. Dr. Sears’ years of pediatric experience make each class relevant to moms in all stages of pregnancy, whether they are carrying their first baby or their fifth.
Prepare RIGHT Now
Turn your pregnancy into a healthy new beginning
This class focuses on the lifestyle, exercise and attitude choices vital for a healthy pregnancy and covers what to avoid during pregnancy and what expectant mothers should start doing to prepare their body for a healthy birth. In addition, expectant mothers will learn about the importance of attitude (good mental health) throughout the pregnancy and strategies for coping with stress.

The class also discusses how to shape your baby’s tastes to crave healthy food throughout their life.
