HUG Your Baby will bring a one-day workshop to your community. Though our online courses are applauded and very well received, some professionals prefer a “live” classroom. Engaging video, inspiring case studies, and lively teaching strategies create an adult learning environment that is educational, inspirational, memorable, and fun!
