Earn While You Learn (EWYL)

We desire to walk with you through your pregnancy by offering you the opportunity to earn while you learn. Our Earn While You Learn (EWYL) program for first-time clients consists of 11 lessons that cover topics such as the 3 trimesters of pregnancy, shaken baby syndrome, SIDS, post-partum depression, breastfeeding, adoption, and labor and delivery.  Additionally we offer lessons for returning clients more focused on infancy.

Lesson times vary in length: from 30 minutes to an hour. You may be in classes with other expecting moms.  Dads-to-be are always welcome to attend with you.  Some group classes with special speakers alternate between clinics and these dates/times vary.  There’s also the possibility to be scheduled with a mentor to meet with you during classes.

After attending 11 of the classes, you will earn a layette basket filled with gender specific baby items, a $50 gift certificate to Precious Seconds or KidzDudz, and diapers and wipes- all of which you will receive at a celebration prior to your due date.  There are also monthly opportunities to win additional baby items!

We look forward to getting to know you better.  Our hope is that this opportunity will further your knowledge about pregnancy and empower you to be the best mom you can be!
