North County’s First Birth Center

It’s here! It’s here! I am so excited to share that it is here! My wonderful and amazing friend, Rochelle McLean, has opened the first freestanding birth center in North County San Diego: Babies in Bloom Birth and Wellness Center

A freestanding birth center, according to the American Association of Birth Centers, “is a homelike facility…with a program of care designed in the wellness model of pregnancy and birth.” The Babies in Bloom Birth and Wellness Center boasts two amazingly-lovely homelike suites with freestanding tubs and interior designer d├ęcor that would be seen in hotels and model homes. Here are some lovely photos of the new center by Catie at Vuefinder Photography during the sneak peak last week. The Grand Opening celebration is on July 12 from 9am to 5pm, and will have many demos and giveaways.

The birth center is in addition to the already successfully Babies in Bloom Boutique that is home to many amazing, natural and hand-picked products as well as host to many classes. Her signature Lactation Lounges are free support groups where moms and babes are welcome to join in, weigh baby, ask questions to Ms. McLean, and commune with other breastfeeding mothers.

Ms. McLean is already a well-respected International Board Certified Lactation Consultant and Child Birth Educator, and has been passionately working with pregnant women and new families since 1999. She opened the doors of Babies in Bloom in late 2003 from her home, where it has bloomed into the facility that you see today.

Register before July 1 - get $5 off

I have said it numerous times and I will say it again. I really LOVE working with the City of San Marcos! 

Their Parks and Recreation team is just an awesome bunch to work with (thank you to Holly, Cathy, and team), and every season it just keeps getting better and better. From free preview classes, to prime time slots, to class packages, and keeping costs low and accessible to the residents of San Marcos.

This season the city of San Marcos is offering parks and recreation participants an “Early Bird” discount if they sign up at least 7 days prior to the first class of the season. Most of the season’s classes have already started for the summer session, BUT Prenatal Yoga’s first class is on Tuesday, July 8. This means that students still can get a $5 discount on their class package, if you sign up by July 1. This can be used for either the combo Tuesday/Thursday class held twice a week or for a once a week package on Tuesday or Thursday. Options are bountiful!

As always drop-ins are always available, and classes can be prorated if you can’t make it to the first class. I am so excited to bring these special opportunities to you and hope that you can join us for the whole session or at least one class. Bring your partner as they are always welcome to join us in class!
