Tuesday Tucked In

Austin Born

It's cold in TX today! Austinites, are you surviving?! What are you doing today as the city is mostly shut down?

We're tucked in at home doing a combo of self-care (Hello, homemade soup and an afternoon snooze!) and prepping for our upcoming classes. The former includes making this amazing Lentil + Sausage soup, which we also whipped up for a postpartum family. It's easy to make and is the perfect blend of protein and vitamin packed goodies for a recovering mama and an exhausted partner.

What are some of your favorite things to make for a postpartum family? Share your recipes in the comments -- we'd love to add to our list!

Sooooo pre-delicious soup and post-nap, we'll be working on finalizing things for our upcoming classes. We're gearing up for our new Childbirth Education Class. At AustinBorn we're about high quality education and care, and we believe in working efficiently to provide that for our clients. That's why we're offering a 1-day comprehensive CBE class. You'll get all the information and tools you need, without having to spend weeks in a class. Classes are ongoing throughout the year and we have a spot waiting for you! Because you're reading this, (and we like you for that) use code CBE30 to save $30 on your registration. xo

We're delighted that our first Easing Your Birthing Time class was a huge success this month! This 2-hour workshop includes tools for coping during the stages of labor: comfort measures, communication, mind/body connection, essential oils, and more. This is a GREAT class for partners to learn how best to support the birthing person. Next class is February 3rd from 4p-6p.

Lastly, a note for parents of little ones who are starting solids soon. We have just a few spots left in our upcoming Introducing Solids workshop on January 20th. This class is taught by a pro -- an occupational therapist who will answer all of your questions, ease your fears, and help get you and your baby set up for success. Grab one of the few remaining spots now!

Well, we're off to taste test the soup and daydream about that nap on the horizon. Hope you're all safe and warm, and we look forward to seeing you at an AustinBorn class soon!
