We caught up with Chicago Family Picnic’s co-owner Rebecca Nguyen about what to know about this top-tier resource for new and expectant parents.
What should expectant and new parents know about you and your business?
At Picnic, we offer expectant parents Childbirth Education classes, Breastfeeding/Baby Care workshops, and labor Doula support. As families welcome their new baby to the world, we offer New Mom & Baby Groups, Postpartum workshops for couples and their new baby, Infant Massage Classes, and other new parent workshops. We also have a thriving Baby and Toddler Play Groups. We are always adding workshops to our repertoire of offerings for expectant and new parents.
What’s new in (in the past year) with your business?
In t he past year, we have begun offering doulas for labor and postpartum support. We have also begun offering a Postpartum/4thTrimester workshop as a part of enrolling in our Childbirth Classes. We felt it was important to carry our support of new families into the postpartum period.
Which topics do you enjoy connecting with new and expectant parents about most?
I love providing expectant and new families with Breastfeeding education and support. We live in a culture where most women (and their partners) know very little about what to expect when feeding a newborn baby and how baby’s eating habits can change drastically. Through our Breastfeeding Class, we normalize the behavior that newborns display in the first few days and talk about what couples can expect as their baby develops through the first 6 weeks. We also offer an in-home lactation visit to help new moms and their partners ensure that nursing is going well. During this visit we give couples the opportunity to talk about how their birth went, what is hard with feeding their baby, and how we can help them best. This visit really exemplifies the continuum of care we offer here at Picnic to new families.
