We have a special group called Jewnatal for expecting couples, regardless of whether this is your first, second or more child. Join Rabbi Kaiserblueth for a series of informal sessions designed as preparation for birth in a Jewish context. This is also a wonderful opportunity to meet others about to welcome a new bundle of joy. Sessions are held every month in a private home.
This is a program for those expecting a baby in their lives, whether through birth or adoption, and whether the 1st or 5th!
The concept is to foster/build relationships with people going through the same life stage that will carry forward after the class has concluded.
The program consists of 4 sessions:
Jewish Traditions and rituals around Brit Milah, Simchat Bat, naming, and rituals to do at home with the child
The birth experience – a doula or midwife is invited to speak about the process leading up to and the birth itself and to foster a dialogue
Finance – Financial advisors are invited to have foster a conversation regarding how you and your family will speak about, plan for, and implement the financial considerations of your new arrival
First Aid/CPR – Instructors will instruct the participants on the basics of infant first aid and CPR.
