The Pump Station & Nurtury™ Classes and Services
The Pump Station & Nurtury™ Expands Its Services with the addition of Dr. Jill Campbell.
Support Groups, Classes & Consultation Services

Our goal at The Pump Station & Nurtury™ is to be a sanctuary for expectant parents, new parents, and their precious babies at this very challenging and rewarding time of life. We want to nurture, support and empower parents with compassionate service, and quality information. This is why we are pleased to announce that we are expanding upon the valuable services we already offer by having Dr. Jill Campbell, a licensed clinical psychologist with over 20 years experience specializing in parenting, early child development and women's issues, become part of our Pump Station™ community as our staff psychologist.

Dr. Campbell will facilitate classes, Mommy & Me and other support groups at our Westlake and Santa Monica facilities and provide individual, couple and family psychotherapy sessions at a budget-friendly cost.

BIOGRAPHY:
Dr. Jill Campbell received her B.S. from Boston University, her M.A. from New York University, and her Psy.D. from Ryokan College. As an intern at The Jewish Board of Family and Children's Services, Jill worked in their therapeutic nursery school with special-needs preschoolers. Dr. Campbell completed her post-doctoral training at Cedars Sinai Early Childhood Center in Los Angeles. Jill has worked in private practice and for a group pediatric practice in Encino. In addition, she has been a guest speaker on different child development issues for preschools and moms clubs in the Los Angeles area.

CONSULTATION SERVICES - in store, home or on phone
We understand that finding a well-qualified psychotherapist can be difficult and costly. Dr. Campbell will conveniently be available here at our store to provide individual, couples and family psychotherapy sessions for very reasonable rates. Private sessions can be scheduled with Dr. Campbell to explore and process whatever problems or difficulties you are currently experiencing.
Examples include but are not limited to:
  • Post-partum adjustment
  • Renegotiating the couple's relationship
  • Stress reduction
  • Sleep teaching
  • Temper tantrums and discipline, and so on
Dr. Campbell's therapeutic approach is holistic in that it involves exploring one's mental, physical and spiritual experiences and beliefs. We also understand that sometimes just getting out to us with a newborn can be challenging, so Dr. Campbell will also be offering in-home psychotherapy appointments scheduled through our store and phone consultations.

CLASSES

Mommy & Me: First Time Moms - Westlake Village
Description: Baby Education/Support Class

This class offers mothers much more than a typical mommy and me class. Being a licensed psychologist who specializes in early child development, I am able to provide moms with the understanding of how their babies mature emotionally, cognitively, socially and physically. In addition, I help new moms adjust to the joys and challenges of parenting. I am a strong believer in parenting mindfully with awareness of what the present moment requires. Mindful parenting helps us to be present and attuned to our baby's inner world. My goal is that the class be both informative and fun. 90-minute classes include songs, exercises, music and movement, as well as education, support, and effective parenting techniques. Moms develop close relationships with other moms, and babies receive their first social experience. Moms leave with confidence and trust in themselves, as well as a wonderful support system of friends.


Mommy & Me: Second Time Moms - Westlake Village
Description: Baby Education/Support Class

This unique mommy and me class is specifically geared toward issues facing second time moms. These include but are not limited to: handling your older child's feelings of jealousy, understanding the second-child syndrome, time management challenges, and helping your children to form a positive sibling relationship. 90-minute classes include songs, exercises, music and movement, as well as education, support and effective parenting techniques. As a licensed psychologist who specializes in early child development, I am a strong believer in parenting mindfully with awareness of what the present moment requires. Mindful parenting helps us to be present and attuned to our baby's inner world. My goal is that the class be both informative and fun. Moms develop close relationships with other moms, and babies receive their first social experience.

HOT TOPICS

How is Technology Affecting Our Children?

According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, today’s children are spending an average of seven hours a day on entertainment media including television, computers, phones, tablets and other electronic devices. How is all this media time affecting our children’s attention span, social interactions, emotional regulation, sleep and overall brain development? This workshop is designed to address such questions as:

  • How much media should babies and young children be allowed to watch?
  • What are some of the negative implications that technology is having on young children?
  • How does screen time affect sleep?
  • Can technology be an educational tool for young children?
  • Should parents be concerned about having the television on in the background while their babies or toddlers are playing?
  • What are some good rules to establish about media use for young children and their families?

Come take this workshop and learn tips and recommendations for parents on how to manage media so they can find the right balance for their families.



Myth Busters: What is it Really Like After Baby Arrives?

Why didn't anybody talk to us about this before the baby was born? This is the most common protest that I hear in my new moms' support class! Right now you are expecting a baby and you have probably been busy finding a good obstetrician and doula, taking childbirth preparation and baby care classes, and getting your baby registry together. All those things are certainly important, but have you taken a moment to ask any of the following questions: What is the best way to bond as a new family right after baby comes home? What are the signs to be aware for postpartum depression and is it true that dads can experience PPD as well? How do you nourish your relationship as a couple when you are both in the throws of caring for a newborn? These are just a few of the questions that new parents wished they thought about before baby arrived!

This workshop is designed for expecting couples to explore ahead of time the expectations and realities of what life will be like once baby is here. Talking about what parenting is really like - busting myths like "breastfeeding is easy and comes naturally" - will help you prepare for parenthood in a way that having the best diaper cake or baby wipe warmer just won't do. Come join us.

Development and Play: 0 to 6 months

One of the most joyous things about being a new parent is watching as your baby changes and develops right before your eyes! Witnessing each new milestone and being amazed by how quickly your baby grows from a tiny newborn to a walking, babbling toddler is one of the few true miracles we have the privilege to experience. Since your baby is growing at such a fast rate, it can be hard to keep up with all the new skills that he or she is demonstrating, to know what will come next and how you can best to support his or her development. This workshop is designed to:

  • Guide you through the key physical, social, cognitive, emotional and language milestones of your baby's first six months.
  • Teach you age appropriate skill building activities that will help promote baby's development and mastering of skills.
  • Help you establish a joyful, loving connection with your baby.

Development and Play: 7 to 12 months

One of the most joyous things about being a new parent is watching as your baby changes and develops right before your eyes! Witnessing each new milestone, and being amazed by how quickly your baby grows from a tiny newborn to a walking, babbling toddler is one of the few true miracles we have the privilege to experience.

Temper Tantrums and Power Struggles

This workshop is designed to educate parents on how to better understand and handle their child's temper tantrums and power struggles. Discussion will include: :

  • Understanding developmentally what is going on with your child.
  • Exploring the myths we have regarding a tantruming child.
  • Acquiring techniques to deal with your child’s tantrums in order to foster good communication and self-esteem.
  • Acquiring techniques to deal with your child’s tantrums in order to foster good communication and self-esteem.
  • Learning to parent mindfully with awareness of what the present moment requires.

The Building Blocks to Communication

Learning to communicate and listen empathetically (being attuned) is a vital part of forming a good attachment with your baby. Dr. Daniel Siegel, a medical expert in the field of attachment and brain development, states that the kind of attachment a parent forms with his or her child has a profound impact on the development of the child's brain and helps shape emotional, social and mental functioning. Studies show that a common element in healthy attachment is when a parent and child have a give and take way of communicating. This is called contingent communication. Parents teach respect by giving respect to their children. From the very beginning of life we can practice this kind of exchange with our babies. Contingent communication has three basic essentials: The first is in how we pay attention to our children; the second is how we make meaning of what our children are telling us; and the third is how effectively we respond. In this workshop we will explore the five key tools that Dr. Daniel Siegel believes are essential to us forming positive attachments with our children so that they can feel safe, understood and thrive in life.


Body Image After Baby

Your body image is an inner view of your outer physical body. It is the perception that you have of your body rather than your actual appearance. For many women, pregnancy and childbirth cause major physical changes in their body. Women may be rounder and curvier, have developed stretch marks, have broader hips, or "not as perky" breasts. Sometimes these changes have made it difficult for us to embrace and appreciate our bodies. It doesn't help that when we see celebrities having babies, there seems to be an overwhelming focus from the media on their post-baby bodies and how quickly they can be seen photographed in their skinny jeans! This often leaves us with unrealistic expectations that are impossible to live up to.

What is important to realize, is that a positive body image always starts in the mind. Now that you are a parent it is important to think about what messages you want to give your children about their bodies. Remember indirect messages are very powerful. Your children pay attention to what you say and do. If you are always complaining about your weight or feel pressure to change your body shape, your children may learn that these are important concerns. In one American survey, 81% of ten-year-old girls had already dieted at least once. This body image workshop will focus on:

  • What a negative body image is costing you.
  • Tools to help you start to celebrate your body just the way it is.
  • Identifying your negative body-image thoughts and reframing them into positive healing affirmations.

Take this workshop and learn to foster a healthy body image that will not only help to enhance your self-view, but also your children's as well.

Mindful Parenting: How to Create a Joyful and Compassionate Home for Your Child

Motherhood is a spiritual journey. Parenting mindfully means parenting consciously and with awareness of what the present moment requires. Mindful parenting helps us to be present and attuned to our child's inner world. In order to do this we need to become calm, balanced, and consistent with ourselves. One of the greatest gifts a parent can give a child is their full attention and validation. This experiential workshop will take you through guided meditations and mindfulness exercises led by a your instructor. In addition, it will teach you powerful mindfulness tools and techniques on how to be present and centered, thus creating an environment in which you can take better care of yourself and your family.


Toilet Teaching: A Gentle Guide to Potty Training Success

Parents of toddlers in diapers are often uncertain as to how to begin the toilet training process. They often ask, “At what age should I begin to toilet train my child?” “How do I know if my child is ready?” “What method should I use?” This toilet-teaching workshop is designed to help parents learn the physiological, cognitive, emotional, social and verbal signs that indicate when your child is ready to learn how to use the potty. It will address the gentle, progressive steps to take in the toilet training process, and how to deal with resistance and problems that you may encounter along the way. We will discuss the disadvantages to trying to toilet train your child too early, and how to keep pressure and power struggles out of the process so that your child will be motivated for success.
