PREPARE FOR BABY
Online Breastfeeding Class
This is an online breastfeeding course taught by me! You can do it completely online at home, with or without your partner, and at your own pace. It’s perfect for first time moms to give you a solid base to start on as well as a great refresher for 2nd, 3rd, 4th time moms!
You can view the first 2 lectures for free to see if this course is right for you. There’s also a facebook support group to join after. YOU can do this, and New Little Life can help.
The first time I heard of Hypnobirth, I wasn’t quite sure what to think. But the more I learned, the more I enjoyed using these techniques in pregnancy, childbirth, and life! These techniques can be used in the hospital, at home, on the drive to your birth place, anywhere. This at home Hypnobabies course is a great way to prepare for the birth of your baby. Many moms choose a few of their favorite techniques to use and leave the others. That’s the beauty of this program, it doesn’t have to be all or nothing!
If nothing else, this is a GREAT way to relax and connect with your baby during pregnancy. I highly recommend this course for anyone, even if you’re not planning a Hypnobirth.
Amazon Baby Registry!
Amazon really is a great way to get a list going of things you’ll need for you and your new little one. I’ve put together a video for you on how to add ANY item to your amazon registry, even if it’s not sold by Amazon. Even add in person services from a doula or lactation counselor! This can be a great resource to share with friends and family who want to help, and who doesn’t love shopping on Amazon??
Did you know most insurance companies are providing a FREE breast pump for every expecting mother? If you’re not sure where to start that process, you can use a company like Areoflow. They are a medical equipment supplier that can send you a breast pump and bill your insurance. They will even help you get a prescription from your doctor if needed. For a step by step tutorial on how to do this process, watch the video above!
There are several comparison videos of breast pumps on my YouTube channel, but it’s hard to beat the Spectra pump. I often cite it as my favorite. It offers a different suction pattern than the traditional in/out in/out of other pumps which I love. If you want to see all the features of the Spectra pump, you can watch this video below.

Bengkung Belly Binding
It is easy to turn your focus completely to your new baby after childbirth, but don’t forget to care for yourself as well. This is one of my most popular video topics on my YouTube channel! Postpartum healing is so important, and Bengkung belly binding is a very natural way to support and heal your body after childbirth.
These are two of my favorite shops on Etsy to buy Bengkung belly binds from. There are many other options as well so feel free to explore around!
If you’re looking for something a little simpler to use, Bellefit is an excellent option for healing mothers. These abdominal wraps are designed for postpartum mothers and are very effective in providing support while your body heals. Here’s a video for you to explore it a bit more.
