“Thank you so much for your guidance and great parenting classes. I have learned so much and feel like a much better, more confident mom now. Thank you for teaching us to be holistic, patient, present parents!”

Shelly

 

“I was asked by a pregnant mom ‘What out of everything was your lifesaver? I was told a nursing pillow’.

My response ‘You know what was my lifesaver…. Newborn class and 3-6 months class at the Butterfly Center, Horizon Hills. You should write it down so you can sign up when you are ready’”.

Sara

 

“The classes at the Butterfly Center have not only provided me with evidence based research and practical application, but also, and perhaps most importantly, they’ve given me the support and confidence necessary to be the mother I am today”.

S.

 

“I am so happy I signed up for this class. It was crucial for me for the first three months, when motherhood was overwhelming. I had weekly support amongst the group and found solace amongst the mothers”.

 

“Being in this class has given me the support to continue through my struggles of breastfeeding. None of the moms in my exercise class are exclusively breastfeeding after 3 months. My ob/gyn, psychologist and pediatrician told me not to worry about it and switch to formula. Without this class I probably would have quit months ago! Thanks to this class I am now exclusively breastfeeding!”

Rachel

 

“I enjoyed the entire class. It was so helpful to have support, reflection and reassurance during the first couple of months. I loved learning about infant brain development and movement. So grateful for the Butterfly Center! I’ve learned so much and felt so supported by the group”.

Emily

 

“This class and the Butterfly Center are amazing! Such a supportive environment!”

Aimee

 

“The Butterfly Center has been a great gift in bonding with my baby”.

 

“I have worked with older children professionally; however, I did not have much experience with newborns prior to becoming a father. This class has increased my knowledge and confidence in my ability to parent my son. Also, although I was the only father who attended this particular class, I felt welcomed and encouraged by the instructor and the mothers in the class”.

Fred

 

“The topics covered were great! Loved the support from the instructor and the peers!”

 

“I am very happy to have discovered Horizon Hills and the Butterfly Center. I knew right way that this class was a safe place to come and learn. I have enjoyed coming to class every week and see the babies grow. The moms I’ve met are happy, knowledge-seeking women that I  am honored to have gotten to know”.

 

“The most helpful part of the class was the other mothers and babies; our bond, friendship and support. If was fun to learn baby songs and to make my own song book. The handouts for home were great to share with the dads”.

 

“I was asked by a pregnant mom ‘What out of everything was your lifesaver? I was told a nursing pillow’.

Sara

 

“I have so much more confidence as a mother of a newborn because of this class. I have learned about baby wearing, sign language, nursing, how to play with toys and avoid overstimulation. I have made so many friends and look forward to watching my baby and her friends grow together”.

 

“My husband and I really learned so much from pregnancy to labor and delivery to healthy parenting. I would highly recommend the Butterfly Center as a resource for all expecting parents. It helped me  build the confidence I needed to have the birth I wanted and to get through the challenges of newborn parenting and share the joys as well”.

Melissa

 

“This class helped reinforce my parenting instincts, feel confident and informed about all the decisions you are faced with as a new parent, provided a wealth of knowledge, introduced me to some great people. I loved open form discussion of topics and hearing everyone’s perspective and experience of newborn parenting”.

Brandon

 

“This class has given me a lot of confidence as a first time mom. As I watch my happy, healthy 5 months old, I can say that this class has guided me to be the parent I want to be”.

Angie

 

“The Butterfly Center has been an incredible resource, reinforcing many of my personal parenting beliefs as well as providing much enlightment. I appreciate the gentle approach, promoting kindness and awareness”.

Delee

 

“Loved everything about this class – from the topics to the friends we’ve made”.

Melissa & Derrick

 

“Going from the labor & delivery class straight into the newborn class has helped me feel confident as a first time mom. I feel that I have the support and resources I need to develop a strong relationship with my baby”.

Angie P.

 

“Not having immediate family near, I found the newborn class and the childbirth class extremely helpful in building the confidence I needed to have the birth that I wanted and to be a confident mother”.
