Om Baby Pregnancy and Parenting Center has added new classes to their wide array of existing classes and workshops including yoga instruction for prenatal, couples, children and babies; natural family living; nutrition and health topics; childbirth education; children's classes; various parenting topics and support groups.
Their new Sacred Pregnancy workshop is an eight-week emotional journey for expectant mothers based on the book, Sacred Pregnancy by Anni Daulter. These group workshops are led by trained Sacred Pregnancy facilitators, Om Baby owner Holly Keich, and Myrriah Raimbault of Peaceful Birth Haven. Through conversation, journaling and art, moms-to-be explore various emotions brought on by pregnancy, and honor and celebrate pending motherhood. A four-week Birth Journey class that can be taken independently is offered as a follow-up toward the end of the pregnancy.
Returning to the summer schedule are two Art 4 Kids Camps taught by Brookside Montessori School art teacher, Jill Farrell. They will be held 10 a.m. to noon, July 15 to 19, and August 12 to 16, and the cost to attend is $125 for each session. Children will draw on their budding artistic talent to create masterpieces of their own using paint, clay, collage and construction materials.
When asked where she sees Om Baby in the future, Keich says a larger space is definitely needed, sharing, “Our ultimate goal is to become a center that provides holistic services all at one location. Everything a family would need to be supported from birth to adulthood, with services such as holistic pediatrics, chiropractic care, acupuncture and massage.”
Location: 2201 Rear Market Street, Camp Hill. In addition to classes and workshops, a by-appointment-only boutique carries natural baby products and specific baby care items. For more information call 717-761-4975 or visit OmBabyCenter.com.
