Online learning you can trust.

Whether you are preparing for labor, learning to breastfeed or struggling to soothe a newborn, you want actionable advice that will achieve results. All of our online classes are thoughtfully created and taught by a Registered Nurse and Family Nurse Practitioner to deliver easy-to-digest advice and tips you can implement right away.

We guarantee that our online curriculum is based on medical training and proven research, not just trends or anecdotal evidence. (Although we should note that we are mothers ourselves!) Most importantly, these courses are based on strategies that have worked for hundreds of our New England clients who have trained with our nursing team in our Boston studio or in-home visits.

Testimonials


“Boston NAPS came highly recommended to me from another mom, and it did not disappoint! We took one class in person at our home and another class virtually; they were both phenomenal. The instructors were so knowledgeable and patient, and I appreciated their enthusiasm, encouragement, and vast knowledge with all of our questions.”

The Boston NAPS Story

Boston NAPS was founded in 2011 by Jamie O’Day, a Registered Labor & Delivery Nurse, and Emily Silver, a Family Nurse Practitioner.

We met while working overnight on the Labor & Delivery unit at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston. As we prepared our patients for discharge after coaching and supporting them through their stay, they would often jokingly say, “If only I could take you home with us!”

We launched Boston NAPS to do just that: Start an innovative company comprised of trained medical professionals who would fill the support gap for parents awaiting a new baby or returning home with their newborns.
