“Freedom to make decisions based on knowledge of alternatives.” International Childbirth Education Association
We suggest that parents plan to attend our classes between 20 weeks and 36 weeks of pregnancy.
Consider this Birth101! This fun and engaging course helps you prepare for birth and help you clarify your birth wishes, no matter what they might be, by exploring different options and alternatives. We offer evidence-based information with a healthy dose of practical knowledge to help you navigate all your choices and to help you feel confident making the best decisions for your family on the big day. Together we explore stages and phases of labour, including comfort measures for each, relaxation and breathing techniques, medical interventions and pharmaceutical pain management, breastfeeding and basic newborn care, postpartum adjustment and community resources.
Our upcoming dates are:
- One-Day Condensed – $155 (+HST)
