“Making the decision to have a child—it’s momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking outside your body.”

Baby+Mom Fit

16 John R. Albanese Place

Eastchester, NY

Baby+Mom Fit was created by local mom and trainer who saw a need for a class that accommodates mom and baby! Classes focus on training while wearing baby (so the baby acts as a weighted vest), which enables moms to get in shape, bond with their babies, feel great, and make some new friends.

 

Nancy Millian, Psy.D.

914-334-3474

Feeling overwhelmed, depressed, anxious, guilty, irritable or even numb at a time that is supposed to be “wonderful”? I specialize in working with postpartum anxiety, depression, infertility, pregnancy loss and work/family balance. With over 33 years as a seasoned psychologist, I offer a relaxed, laid-back style that produces real results using a nonjudgmental and caring atmosphere. Clients often comment to me that they are eager to come to therapy and see it as uplifting and healing. Therapy can be a process that is positive, sometimes humorous, and one that frees us to be better and happier people.

 

Milk Mama Bake Shop

Lactation cookies are delicious and healthy cookies that are shown to increase milk supply in breastfeeding women! Because they are a wholesome treat, you can eat as many as you like (within reason), but best results come when you eat 2-3 cookies every day. These cookies are safe for pregnant and breastfeeding women, though good luck keeping the rest of your family away!

 

Coren Schwartz, LCSW

239 North Broadway, Suite 1

Sleepy Hollow, NY

I’m an experienced psychotherapist in private practice for over twenty years, specializing in relationships and life transitions. Having a new baby can bring about a host of complex emotions. In addition to joy and elation, sometimes other confusing feelings may occur such as feeling detached, anxious, angry, short tempered, and emotionally and physically overwhelmed. You may begin to feel differently about your partner and other members of your family. I can help to understand and alleviate the physical and emotional tolls having a new baby can bring. I also work with parents who are feeling overwhelmed not just with a newborn but with parenting children through all the phases of their development.
