Hi, my name is Kimberly Leonard. I am a Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner and Culinary Nutrition Expert/Instructor. I am the owner of a nutritional therapy private practice, Wellness Simplified LLC in Webster New York.
In this class we are going to explore who you might want to have on speed dial and who you might want to just know when it comes to your postpartum recovery. We will discuss how to best utilize well meaning relatives and friends, and who the professionals are. The Fourth Trimester is a time to do MORE than just survive, it is a TIME to THRIVE. Let me teach you how to build your village so you feel fully supported.

Babywearing 101, taught by babywearing lover, Certified Birth Doula in training, and Registered Yoga Teacher Lindsay Dooley. When Lindsay’s son was two weeks old, one of her friends came home for the weekend to meet her baby and give her a babywearing tutorial. Lindsay wants to provide that same service to all who want it!
Babywearing helped immeasurably with Lindsay’s Postpartum Anxiety, and made for a comfortable fourth trimester for both her and her son. The art of babywearing has a rich history and many benefits for the birthing parent, the non-birthing parent, and newborn. Lindsay continues to babywear her now-toddler (when he allows), and wants to share evidence based information and experiences with you!
