Preteen & Teen Classes

These sessions prepare preteen and teens to navigate their bodies’ changes throughout puberty and early adulthood. Classes are separated into topic focus and suggested age ranges. These classes are intended to include far more than a school discussion! Get provider level insight broken down for each age group. Examples of topics covered include learning your anatomy, physiology of the menstrual cycle, hygiene practices to support good health, contraception and safe sexual practices. To accommodate parent and child vs child only preferences there are several options for the puberty classes. If you need more information please email at classes@mindfulmidwifery.net or call 302-922-6200.

Puberty Party

Everything is so much more fun with friends! This is an opportunity to book the whole class and know everyone there! You also get to define whether it is a guardian or no guardian class. This interactive class is geared towards 9-13 year old girls. Content focuses on getting to know the medical language for your body, puberty, the menstrual cycle, menstrual cycle products, and hygiene practices. This class will not cover topics surrounding sex.  A “period starter kit” will be made and explained. Even if the puberty conversation has been started and/or a child has had their first period, this class will build on the information they have already been provided. This package includes: Up to 8 girls with/or without their guardian (individual class preference), an ice cream social mid-class, puberty packs for all girls. Have fun with it and ask everyone to dress in a certain color if you desire (might I suggest red ;). Another bonus: Cost savings compared to individual booking occurs once you hit 5 girls! This class is sure to create positive, fun memories involving puberty! If interested in this class please email us at classes@mindfulmidwifery.net or call us at 302-922-6200 to arrange a time that works! 

Individual Puberty Session

This interactive one-on-one session is geared towards 9-13 year old (per parent preference) girls. Content focuses on getting to know the medical language for your body, puberty, the menstrual cycle, menstrual cycle products, hygiene practices and body safety. You can determine whether you and child feel more comfortable taking the class together or your child only. As a parent/child format, the session will facilitate open conversation regarding puberty for the future. This class will not cover topics surrounding sex.  A “period starter kit” will be made and explained. Even if you have started the puberty conversation and/or your child has had their first period, this class will build on the information you have already provided.

Group-Girls Only Puberty Class

This session is a group (up to 9 girls) session. If you and your child feel more comfortable with no parents there-this is the session for you. This is the same format as the puberty party, but this session is available for those that do not want to book as a group. You can book right away as the date and time are on the drop down. This is a girls-only session- for parent/child session please book an individual session. 

Navigating Information on Sex

This class geared towards 12-15 year olds (per parent preference) starts the safe sex conversation. Topics focus on correct language, correct information regarding sex, proper hygiene and when to seek medical attention or guardian intervention. Unfortunately, teens have access to too much information from both their friends and social media. Regardless of morality, spiritual or religious practices and beliefs this class is relevant to prepare your teen to navigate exposure to these topics safely.  This class serves to prevent and/or correct misinformation in a “knowledge is safety” format. This class does not replace or diminish a family’s or individual’s spiritual, moral or religious belief system regarding these topics. To encourage open conversation and safe space this class is a child only class. 

Parent and Teen Contraceptive Class

There is so much out there about contraception and cycle control…what’s accurate? Which one is right for your teen? As parents, we might not have all the information we need to make an informed decision with our teens. Even worse, sometimes you disagree on the method that seems right. Come together and get more information than an online search or a gyn visit would give you. Each method will be discussed extensively with questions encouraged throughout. Both of you will be more prepared to navigate this important health topic for years to come.
