Practice Update

As many of you may have noticed, the past few months there have been no group classes offered for childbirth or breastfeeding education. At this time I have decided to take a short pause in offering these services. As a mom of three small children, a wife of a husband with a very demanding schedule and a nurse still working in the hospital and teaching in the hospital where I work, it was just time to re-prioritize my life and put the most important things back on the top of my list. That being said I remain very passionate about childbirth and breastfeeding education. I am still available for a limited number of private sessions each month. If you would like to set up a private education session, please email me at anytime at birthsbabiesandbeyond@gmail.com. You can also leave a message at 732-460-1300 x 302 and I will return your call as soon as possible. Coleen Markey, LCSW is still accepting clients seeking treatment for clinical situations such as prenatal and postpartum adjustment, anxiety and depression, perinatal bereavement and couples counseling. Please reach out to her by call 732-460-1300 x 303. I do anticipate starting to offer group classes again in the fall and Coleen is continuing to offer groups on a monthly basis so please continue to follow our Facebook page and pass our name along to anyone whom may benefit from our services : ) All the Best, Christy Abrams, RNC-OB, CCB, CLC... read more

New Classes for December

I am pleased to announce my return from maternity leave with some great class offerings!! December 6, 2014 Childbirth 101 10a-12p Taught by: Christy Abrams RNC-OB, CCE, CLC Learn the items necessary to get you  from the admitting desk to postpartum happy and healthy. This class is compact and gives you all the goods without the weekly trip to the hospital auditorium or baby store back room. Taught in a very interactive way and for never more then 7 couples at a time, the class is very tailored to both what is wanted and needed information for expectant couples. Cost for this class is $30.00 per couple- a special discounted rate for it being my first class since returning from maternity leave December 6, 2014 12:30-2:30pm Preparing for Postpartum Taught by: Christy Abrams, RNC-OB, CCE. CLC & Joanne Cahill, LCSW Perhaps an even more important class then childbirth, postpartum is no joke.. not for mom, dad, baby and family. Being sent home with a newborn with no real prep or plan can be terrifying.  This class can ease some of that anxiety by preparing you both for the physical aspects of postpartum and possibly more important, the emotional aspects. The first hour of the class will review the physical care you will need during the postpartum period, newborn norms, feeding schedules and challeges and plans moving forward with your life. The second hour taught by Joanne Cahill will strictly deal with the emotional aspect of postpartum. This preparation can make your transition to parenthood so much smoother then it may be otherwise. Cost for this class is $30.00- Couples registering... read more
