Welcome to The Petite Retreat

Hey Capital Region! Did you recently find out you have a bun in the oven? No, not the glorious doughy kind, the tiny human kind that has you running to the bathroom every 5 seconds and longing to nap on any flat surface you see. Do you know how you’re going to have this baby? I mean we all know HOW you have a baby. Kind of. Have you seen all the options that are out there locally in the baby realm? We bet you haven’t really. Not really really. But it’s ok because we got you. No, WE REALLY GOT YOU. This is not one of those foo foo shows where we throw a bunch of free crap at you and people stand behind tables like zombies selling a pitch. This is an event we plan and organize all year long with the best in the birth and baby world both locally AND nationally. And we are going to hook you up with some REAL quality workshops with REAL information and REALLY good baby products. I mean, it’s what you need right now. That and nutritious food. We got that too. So put down your What To Expect When You’re Expecting Book, get off of Baby Center’s page, and step into a REAL realm of local experts who know how to birth babies, how to support new parents, and how to make you feel so incredibly empowered and prepared that your Aunt Sally’s parenting critiques will roll off you like water off a duck’s back.
Workshops on infant sleep, baby wearing, safety, fitness, meal prep and more!
