There are spaces available for my June Weekend Prenatal Class at the Centre for Social Innovation. This is a two-day intensive course designed to help you feel confident, calm and prepared as you approach your birth and new parenthood. It will also provide your partner with skills and knowledge that will aid them in supporting you during labour and birth, as well as postpartum.
Classes will be held Saturday June 15th and Sunday June 16th, 2013 from 10am-5pm, at CSI Annex (720 Bathurst St.). This series is ideal for those expecting to give birth between late June and August.
To register, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, your partner’s name (if applicable) & email address, your estimated delivery date and your phone number. The fee for the course is $240 per couple. Discounts are available for doula clients.
Topics for the course will include (but are not limited to):
-natural pain management and coping strategies for labour
-the physiology of labour and birth
-positions for labour and birth
-risks and benefits of common interventions (including pain medications)
-self-advocacy/informed decision-making skills
-newborn care and characteristics

Where do you teach? NY?
Hi Lauren, sorry, no – my classes are currently all in Toronto, ON. As of this summer I will be adding classes in Peterborough, Cobourg and possibly some other towns in that region (Northumberland County, Peterborough County and NE parts of the GTA). Are you looking for a class taught by an independent CBE in NYC? I might be able to help you find someone with an approach and background similar to mine. Feel free to stay in touch!
