Carrie, mayfly77@gmail.com, is offering a new birth preparation class at Woodlawn Swap n Play beginning later this month. She says  “We will be focusing on relaxation techniques, massage and other comfort measures that can be used throughout labor. It is intended to be a time–and space– for parents to ask questions, practice working with contractions and discuss ways to support a positive birth experience.” If you are interested, here are the two time options. Please email her and let her know your choice. Option A) Thursday Oct. 27th 6:30 or 7pm Option B) Friday Oct. 28th 6:30 or 7pm.

We are opening this party up to the neighborhood as well, and will have volunteers helping from The Oregon Community Church providing activities for our kids. If you are interested in coming, and can bring a side dish to share, please email me! It is my hope that Swap n Play families can help provide the food for the party.
