I have another upcoming prenatal series starting at the Centre for Social Innovation, in the Annex, on March 5th. This course will run Tuesday evenings from 6:30-9 pm for six weeks.
If you are expecting a baby between late April and early June, this is the class for you! I cap my courses at six couples, so that my students can get to know one another and start building those new parent networks early. This course will give you and your partner the information and skills you need to cope with labour and birth; self-advocate effectively with your healthcare providers; know how breastfeeding should look and feel; know what to expect of a newborn; and make decisions about parenting that will work for you and your family.
The course is $240 per couple. Discounts are available for doula clients. Email me for more information, or to register.
Topics for the series include (but are not limited to):
-pain management and coping strategies for labour
-the physiology of labour and birth
-positioning for labour and birth
-risks and benefits of common interventions
-newborn care, characteristics and abilities
Education is the key to having a birth experience in which you feel confident, calm and in control.
