Hi!

I'm Adriana Lozada, and since 2007, I’ve been helping new and expectant parents navigate their births and 4th-trimester experiences.

As the creator and host of the Birthful podcast, I’ve talked with hundreds of maternity professionals and new parents about every postpartum topic you can think of!

We've dug deep into the transition into parenthood, the biological needs of babies, navigating breastfeeding a newborn, understanding the support you'll need, your recovery, vaginal rehab, and so much more.

I bring to this course all the heart and mind knowledge gleaned from these conversations, all the hours pouring over the books and research, along with the copious experience from one-on-one support with my own clients (and of course, my own experience as a mom!) to help you thrive with your newborn in all aspects of your postpartum journey!

What can you expect to learn during Thrive with Your Newborn?:

People rave about this class!

“Adriana Lozada brings a delightful combination of joy and intelligence to every discussion. Her topics are pertinent and deep, classic but freshly spun. Postpartum parents need more tender loving care with smart solutions and fast. Here is a gem of a resource – one that you can trust to touch your heart in a beneficial way today.”

Gail Tully

Founder of Spinning Babies, author and midwife extraordinaire

“I found the course to be incredibly helpful in the first few weeks of my baby’s life and it gave my partner and I language to work from. I highly recommend this course and tell everyone I know about it.”

A.M. O’Malley

I wish I did the class before my baby came! Instead, I struggled through those first few weeks (…) Early motherhood is so confusing and intense, and it would have been much better if I had the knowledge and expectations (taught in the course) from the beginning. I’d definitely recommend first time parents to take the course! In my understanding, this type of information isn’t usually covered anywhere else (not in birth classes, hospital pamphlets, or appointments with midwives as far as I can tell).”

Michelle O.

“I am now 6 weeks postpartum and really felt that this course helped prepare my mindset for caring for my baby and allow me to feel more confident, especially when it comes to reading his cues and what to expect for sleep patterns (or lack thereof!).”

Gwen H.

“It’s easy to get wrapped up in preparing for birth or feel overwhelmed and not know where to start in learning about life with a newborn and this course solves all that for you! Adriana’s experience really shines through in the way she presents so much great info and brings it together in one place. For us the course was true to its name and has really helped us thrive with our newborn. I have recommended this to all my pregnant friends!”

Miranda C.

“This course was amazing. My husband and I went through each video together (sometimes twice) and Adriana helped us get on the same page with our expectations for the first months after our baby was born. I can’t express how much stress was prevented through the knowledge we gained in Thrive With Your Newborn. I highly recommend this course!”

Frequently Asked Questions

Have a different question? Email us at info@birthful.com.

When does the class start?

Whenever you decide! This is a self-paced program, and all the course materials are available to you immediately after you sign up (although the course is structured as a 5-week course).

You will also receive weekly email prompts to keep you on track, but those emails will not start until you activate them.

At what point in my pregnancy should I start the class?
We usually recommend you start the postpartum class when you are around 30-34 weeks pregnant.
That should give you a bit of wiggle-room in case it takes you longer than 5 weeks to complete the course, or if your baby comes early.
How much time should I expect the class to take?
The course is structured to be completed over 5 weeks, but because you have instant access to all the materials, you can go through it faster (or slower!).
In total, the course contains close to 8.5 hours of video, and you will need roughly 2-4 hours more to complete the different worksheets and other materials (or more depending on how deeply you dive into all the resources!).
How long do I have access to the course?
Once you sign up for the course, you get life-time access (or at least for as long as the program exists... we don't have any intentions of taking it down, but we can't predict all futures!) If we update it, you will still get access to the new material.
Can I go back and re-watch the videos? Can others watch with me?

You can go back and re-watch the materials as many times as you want. You can also use this course after future pregnancies.

You and your immediate family members caring closely for your baby can watch the materials (think partners, grandparents or aunties) but you may not share your log-in info with other pregnant friends or professional caregivers. This program is intended for your personal use only.

What if I find the course is not what I expected?

Thrive with Your Newborn comes with a no-hassle 7-day money back guarantee, from the day you purchase the course.

I want you to have a magnificent postpartum experience, and I KNOW that if you apply what you’ll learn in this course, you will. But if you find that this course isn’t a good fit for you, contact us and you’ll receive a full refund.
