Merry Christmas!

We will be open Christmas Eve from 10:30 am to 3 pm for our last minute holiday shoppers but then we will close to enjoy the special days ourselves! We hope you will have a very Merry Christmas! We will be closed Tuesday, Christmas Day, and re-open on Wednesday morning regular time and keep regular hours the rest of the week.

As a reminder for those who are off to the snow, we have several new and gently-used infant prams and snow bibs plus a variety of new and gently-used mittens, gloves, and ski gloves. You can even find a nice selection of hats and scarves so come in soon and get ready for an enjoyable visit to the snow without your little ones complaining of guess what–being cold!

Warmly, Debra and staff.

Free Childbirth Class, UC Davis Experts Give Class

Attention Pregnant Couples: Bring Your Pregnant Friend and Her Coach to Your Childbirth Class for FREE!

We have a very special Christmas gift for couples expecting Christmas babies–Register by October 20 for our next childbirth course and you can bring another pregnant couple for FREE. That means you can split the $200 course fee and save $100 each couple!

We know it is difficult to carve out eight class nights anytime of the year but especially over the holidays so we’re sweetening the attraction. We know–and so do our hundreds of past students know– how important it is to be prepared for childbirth. Even old women can clearly recollect the birth of their babies and that is how significant the experience will be. For most married couples, the intense work to bring your baby in the world helps cement their relationship and can set couples on a path to create a closer and more loving family.

Our childbirth course is worth every cent and we hope you’ll increase the fun of learning by bringing friends to share the class with you. Feel free to call with any questions. (707) 678-6262.

Why Our Class: Protecting Your Baby in the First Trimester

If you have not read plenty prior to conceiving, then there is much to learn during your early pregnancy. For example, did you know that your baby’s heart begins to beat and take over its own tiny circulation at only 21 days after conception? For most women, that time comes even before they are certain they are pregnant. In addition, all the baby’s vital organs are in place by the end of the third month. Yes, they are primitive and have a lot more developing to do–but this is important to know so that you will help protect your baby from the hazards of malnutrition or environmental risks.

Simple things like emptying the cat litter box or even cleaning the oven can pose risks to a developing fetus. Some women work in environments that may have unhealthy fumes or chemicals. These are called teratogens (teratology is the study of human birth defects) and we learn more about them in our Early Pregnancy Class. Our next one is slated for Saturday, August 11, 9 – 10:30 am at Nana and Company, 141 N. First St., in downtown Dixon.
