Parenthood is terrifying and desirable at the same time, like a roller-coaster ride or a popsicle shaped like Freddy Krueger. Tame parenting trials with today's Groupon to Mothers & Company in West Boylston. Choose between the following options:
- For $10, you get $20 worth of natural parenting products. This option is valid for new customers only.
- For $40, you get a six-week session of either Prenatal Yoga or Baby & Me Yoga (an $80 value).
Founded by a childbirth educator recently profiled in Worcester Mag, Mothers & Company’s natural-parenting community center supports expectant and new moms with relaxing yoga classes while its store supplies them with organic and natural baby products. The store's collection of cloth diapers, baby carriers and slings, pumps, and other accessories facilitates a natural and organic transition into parenthood. The store’s homeopathic, all-natural Hyland's Calms Forté sleep aid soothes parental nerves with chamomile, slipping them into restful sleep filled with dreams about even more sleep ($7.50); a pair of absorbent, washable Bummis training pants stretches with Lycra to fit around little legs and bellies as they trot toilet-ward ($11).
Alternatively, in the Hatha-based Prenatal yoga class, an experienced instructor walks baby-bearers through gentle but strengthening yoga positions and meditation exercises meant to ease common pregnancy-related stresses, such as the grocery store running out of ice-cream-covered pickles. Alternatively, the six-week session of Baby & Me yoga brings mothers and babies together for gentle breathing and tandem poses. See the schedule for class times and details.
