Bringing You Insurance Covered Childbirth Classes


Welcome to Stork and Cradle



Your  destination for judgment-free, no-nonsense, real information about giving birth and taking care of your baby.  


It doesn’t matter if it’s your first by or your fourth. It doesn’t matter if you had a hard pregnancy or an easy one. Every pregnancy, every birth is different, but one thing every parent has in common is feeling overwhelmed by the amount of conflicting information about their choices and options. Whether it’s choosing between natural birth options or C-sections, breastfeeding or bottle feeding, disposable or reusable cloth diapers and thousands of other decisions, all of it can be intimidating.


One of every parent's biggest fears is being harshly judged by just about everyone, including other parents. That's why Stork and Cradle provides a no-nonsense, zero-judgement zone where you can learn everything you need to know to make informed decisions about your parenting choices. We make sure you get the whole story, so that you can tackle fears head-on, get full of confidence and backed by a network of support, compassion and care.


We will help you cut through the bull crap


If you’re feeling frustrated, confused, overwhelmed and worried about what the best choices are for you and your baby, we’ll teach you how to worry effectively and find solutions. (‘Cause let’s face it, no matter what you are told, worrying is normal and to be expected.) We cut through the clutter, sweep out the misinformation and give you a clear picture with good options from which to choose 

  • We give all our clients free online healthy pregnancy classes, chock-full of  videos and exercises to create a mindset built on freedom of fear, worry and anxiety. These classes give you the tools to become as strong, healthy and powerful as possible.
  • Get support in our Facebook group on issues related to provider communications,  nutrition,  birth choices, health concerns, breastfeeding, postpartum recovery and so much more. Feel the strength of community with other mothers. 

Take control of your pregnancy and childbirth experience, by empowering yourself with one  or all of our  classes. Use your insurance to take a prenatal breastfeeding  class and if you have Oscar insurance they cover almost all of the classes listed below and three lactation consults once the baby is born:


  • Lamaze Childbirth
  • Prenatal Breastfeeding
  • Baby Care and Safety
  • Infant CPR
  • Expecting Multiples
  • Sibling and Grandparent Prep
  • Post birth Lactation Consultations


You’re not alone, We got you. 


At Stork and Cradle, we believe passionately that every new parent, deserves to know the unblemished truth, but also to hear it with kindness and compassion. 

  • We don’t bombard you with information; we take you through everything, step by step. Yes, that means some classes are long yet thorough. 
  • We don’t  scare you, we give you the truth and help you develop realistic, workable expectations. 
  • We help you make informed decisions based on benefits vs risks, rather than tell you what you should do. We trust you will make the best decision in the moment.  
  • We don’t brush off your concerns. We answer every question you have and if we can’t, we make sure we get the information to you ASAP.

We’ve been in the same place as  most new parents; feeling the unease of not knowing and  doubt of having no experience with babies but we came through because of community.  


We will be your community when your mom or sister isn’t around, when you can’t reach your doctor on the phone and when you just need to vent about a mommy moment. It’s all cool. We’ve been there and we are here for you.
