Prenatal Classes 

The birth of a child is a life changing event for both the one giving birth as well as those closest to them. The birth experience is affected by one’s belief in themselves and their body’s ability to give birth. Our prenatal classes exist to empower the one giving birth through knowledge to have the loudest voice in the room and to make informed decisions about their body and their birth experience. While maintaining a judgement free space, honest, evidenced based prenatal, birthing, postpartum and parenting information will be provided to empower parents to make informed decisions throughout their journey. All information will be framed from an attachment perspective with a deep emphasis on trusting one’s own natural instincts.

Unlike typical Prenatal Class that spend a limited amount of time on the postpartum period, our prenatal classes include two full session called “The Fourth Trimester”. Too often we hear new parents ask “why didn’t any one tell me”. During our time together we will spend time looking at the basics of newborn care but also some of the harder truths of new parenthood.

We suggest taking this series between 25-35 weeks. This is a 4 week series.

Newborn Baby

Life With Baby 

Our Life With Baby Class is a 2 part workshop designed to guide you through the transition to parenthood. We will discuss aspects of care for your baby such as diapering, bathing, newborn sleep, feeding and much more. We will also focus on your care as parents in the newborn period and explore strategies to help support you and set you up for success. This class is ideal for those expecting a baby and those who find themselves looking for a little more support during the newborn period. It is also ideal for those who have a baby joining their family but are not birthing their baby themselves, such as adoption or surrogacy.
