Antenatal Classes

Not all childbirth classes are the same. These unique classes are for expectant parents seeking honest, practical and current information. Self-awareness, creative, interactive and lively classes.

We meet in a warm and nurturing space to learn about birth, babies and parenting. In small intimate groups we explore the possibility of birth being a rite of passage. Through focusing on the process of labour and birth we embrace the experience as it unfolds. Birth is prepared for as a journey. The classes offer parents tools to work with the intensity and challenges of birth. Developing a non-judgmental mindset to your journey coupled with pain coping practices. Parents will awaken their instinctual ability to birth their baby.

Classes include the following:
  • Many Mindful Pain Coping Practices that build confidence and a positive mindset to help you move through labour's intensity, pain and the unknown
  • How birth works and what you can do to help it
  • A Prenatal nutritional check in
  • Cage or tame your "Birth Tigers" by dealing with your fears before birth.
  • Asking questions and getting information
  • If birth involves a caesarean - staying connected and aware
  • Special Fathers class as fathers experience birth from their perspective! In addition to learning how to support the mother through labour, they also need to know what they will need as they witness the birth of their child as birth is also a right of passage for them.
  • Ways to welcome your baby and yourself as a newly "born" parents
  • Baby proofing your relationship
  • How to prepare and support your postpartum recovery and transition to parenthood
