Online Masterclass

Our Healthy Chats seminar is now available online for those unable to attend an in-person class. New and updated with all the information about birth and conception.

Healthy Chats is an in-home seminar for mothers and tween girls (ages 9 – 12) to talk about puberty, birth, and conception. It was developed by Dr. de Freitas, pediatrician and mother of three, over 25 years ago. The seminar continues to be polished and updated with simple yet accurate information regarding how the entire process works. The best part is that both mother and daughter get to review the same information. Mothers can decide if they want to review the information about birth/conception on their own.
