Prenatal Classes – All Live but Online

Pregnant Woman's Belly

Do you know that you have many choices in birth?  Learn about your options and how to make informed choices.  PRENATAL CLASSES are being taught live but online so you can be prepared, learn gold-nugget tips, and ask questions – all from the comfort and safety of home.  Available as a 4-week online series, or as private classes.

Birth Essentials – Prenatal Class Online Series (four 90-minute sessions)

The Birth Essentials Prenatal Class is broken into 4 weekly sessions you can do from the comfort of your home.  It’s loaded with the essentials of prenatal education. Topics include signs of labour, stages of labour and what to do (including when to go to hospital), birth support, interventions, informed decision making, tips for a more comfortable and shorter labour.  Natural and medical options for pain control are discussed, as well as routine procedures.  This class focuses on birth, prep and the immediate postpartum hours.
$135 per pregnant person or couple.  Check dates and register here.

 

Private Prenatal Classes – available in person or via Zoom video call.

Group classes are designed to allow for discussion and questions for 6-10 couples and breaks, so the private classes can be done faster.  Favorite options are listed below.  In addition to the options below, you can set up a short class or consultation for specific preparation (e.g. for a planned Caesarean birth) or a sequence of classes tailored to meet your individual needs.  Reserve your spot for Private Classes!
