Hi, I'm Shelly Taft

I’m a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN), Doula, Family Educator,International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC), and Infant Sleep Coach. I’ve been supporting new families in the childbirth year since 2007.

Every family is different, so I don’t believe in a cookie-cutter approach to parenting support. I will work with you to develop a plan that works for your life and your family.

My passion is providing judgement free, evidenced based support and education to families from pregnancy and through the first year of their child's life.

I’ve supported more than a thousand families in their parenting journey, and I’d be honored to help you, too.

Frequently asked questions

If I join with the monthly payment plan, can I cancel?

Yes, you can cancel at anytime.

However, this membership is currently being offered at an introductory rate which is subject to increase after expiration of the introductory period.

If you cancel, then wish to rejoin, you will have to pay whatever the monthly rate is at that time. 

What is your refund policy?

Our goal is to provide quality, personalized support. In order to do that, we have to limit the number of families who can join.

For this reason, we do not offer refunds. 

There may be exceptions made in certain situations. You can contact us here if you have any questions. 

I have a very busy lifestyle, how will I be able to fit this into my day?

Our live classes are offered multiple times throughout the six month membership period, offering lot of opportunities to enroll in each class.

Many of our classes are recorded and can be done whenever it fits into your schedule! 

All our providers are busy moms themselves, so we get how it can be hard to fit things in, which is one of the reasons we decided to create The Baby Pro Bistro.

I already had my baby, is it too late to join?

Absolutely not! Our community is made for expecting and new parents, up through the first year of your baby's life. 

How far into pregnancy should I be to join?

That's totally up to you! The sooner you join, the more time you will have to look through all the material and participate in the support groups. 

Generally, families find it helpful to join in the second trimester.

What classes are included?

The Baby Pro Bistro includes both live and recorded classes.

Our live classes include:

  • prenatal childbirth 
  • prenatal breastfeeding
  • prenatal newborn care 

Our recorded classes include:

  • prenatal infant sleep 
  • starting solids 
  • picking your healthcare providers
  • writing a birth plan
  • returning to work 
  • pumping 
  • tummy time 
  • bottle feeding skills 

We will also have monthly guest speakers on a variety of topics, weekly and monthly support groups, and the membership also includes a birth plan audit.

New classes are being added all the time! We are a community, and we value input from our members, so if you want to see more content on a particular topic not already covered, let us know! 🙂

Does the membership eligible for HSA/FSA?

In most cases, yes, although we never guarantee it and encourage families to confirm with their insurance.

Will my insurance reimburse for any of the membership price?

Yes, some insurances do reimburse for part of the membership fee. However, we never guarantee reimbursement and encourage you to verify your benefits for coverage or prenatal classes and breastfeeding consults. If you have questions, just send us a message. 

Can I renew my membership after the six months is up?

Absolutely! The Baby Pro Bistro applies through the first year of your child's life, so many families who join during pregnancy will often renew for another six months to continue to receive support in the postpartum period.
