There are spaces available for my May/June Prenatal Class at the Centre for Social Innovation. This is a six week 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 on Monday evenings, from 6-8:30pm, beginning May 6th, 2013 at CSI Annex (720 Bathurst St.). This series is ideal for those expecting to give birth between late June and August.
**Please let me know if you are interested in the course but not available on week nights.
To register, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. 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
