Calling all new moms and moms-to-be—we teamed up with our friends over at The Pump Station & Nurtury for a fall event schedule you don't want to miss. From pelvic floor health to lactation support and nutrition, we called in some of the biggest experts in postnatal health and wellness to share their wisdom at an I.R.L. class at The Pump Station in Santa Monica. Not in the L.A. area? Not to worry—we'll be live streaming each event via Zoom so you too can have insider access to our can't miss event.
Be sure to RSVP to reserve your spot to attend either in-person or virtually. Each class is a $10 entry ticket and all proceeds will be donated to Harvest Home.
If you didn't know already, The Pump Station provides education and support to over 300 expecting and new parents weekly in their Santa Monica location. Their services cover everything from lactation consulting, breastfeeding support groups, childbirth prep and more and their goal is to be a sanctuary for new and expecting parents during their most rewarding time.
