There are still a few spots for expecting couples available for our May Prenatal Classes!
Providing a comfortable and friendly atmosphere, our Childbirth Preparation Classes for parents-to-be in HRM are created to be welcoming and informative. When instructor, Wanda Cox, prepared for her own first childbirth experience in 1997 she did what she thought she was suppose to do; “I took a hospital-based prenatal class, read some books and, I thought I was ready.” In these workshops, you and your partner will gain knowledge and build confidence as you plan and prepare for birth and postpartum. You’ll also be led through that information from caring and nurturing childbirth educators and active working doulas. We know nothing beats compassionate, comprehensive, hands-on learning! These classes are such an amazing resource.
Many of us need a personalized experience to retain information (especially with baby brain!), and we’ve heard time and time again how much of a difference these interactive classes make for new parents. The evidence based information, visual aids and the instructor’s regular interaction with recent local births ensures you will feel confident, informed and empowered for your labour and birth experience.
The workshop is comprehensive and includes:
- Prenatal Exercise and Nutrition
- The Process of Labour
- Common hospital procedure and Interventions
- Birth Planning
- Breathing and Relaxation Techniques
- Newborn Care and Breastfeeding
Our upcoming May dates include two Wednesday evenings, May 17th and 24th, 6:00pm to 9:00pm. Wanda is a Certified Birth and Post Partum Doula, Certified Infant Massage Instructor, Lamaze Certified Birth Educator and trained Lactation Educator.
Our Prenatal and Childbirth Education classes collaborate with Wanda Cox as well as Jen Hammond of Pampered Mamas Doula Services. Both instructors are marvellous! Jen is a Childbirth Educator and certified (and incredibly well respected) birth doula in the community who encourages expectant couples to trust in the process of birth. Jen’s next prenatal class is scheduled for Saturday, July 8th, 10-5pm.
Both instructors classes are scheduled now through December 2017. Don’t delay. Space is limited.
