COVID-19 and NEW LIFE PRENATAL CLASSES

Parents still need education and we're here to provide it.

During Covid-19 restrictions, all group Prenatal Classes and Child CPR workshops will run as on line, live stream sessions
In home, private classes may be scheduled IF health screening and physical distancing criteria are met.
Regular group classes will commence at the Ellesmere Community Recreation Centre when it re-opens. 

During Covid-19 restrictions, our classes will continue to run as follows...

Prepare for birth and baby as you ask questions and learn what you need to know with our dynamic and engaging real time platform.  Share ideas, fears, joy and experiences with other expectant parents whose babies are due around the same time as yours. 

Learn everything from signs of labour approaching to feeding and caring for your baby and yourself in the first few weeks at home. Join the fun as we practice comfort measures and coping techniques for labour as well as feeding, burping, swaddling and diapering on your own doll or stuffy. Everyone is welcome, regardless of birth plan or where you plan to give birth.

The Online Prenatal Class can be completed at your own pace.  Included is a personal connection with an experienced Certified Childbirth Educator and Doula, by email, to help answer questions you may have and and offer tips and information about community resources and services. 

Private prenatal classes are interactive and very popular for those with busy schedules who cannot attend an extended series of prenatal classes, or for expectant parents looking for a customized class covering topics to meet their specific needs. 
Private prenatal classes may be held in the comfort of your own home OR via a live stream virtual class, and are scheduled on a weekday or weekend at your convenience.  You may choose a prenatal class that covers the same topics as our group series, or you may customize your private class by choosing the topics you would like covered.  Save money by doing a semi-private class with a friend!
There is flexibility with dates / times for private class options.  Please call or email to schedule a date/time that works best for you.
We will continue to offer our in-home private prenatal classes. These classes may be scheduled IF health screening criteria are met.

As professionals we commit to:

  • Practice social distancing outside of visiting your home for a class
  • Wash hands thoroughly at our home before we come to you, and again on arrival at your home, and frequently throughout each day
  • Avoid touching our eyes, nose and mouth
  • Use sanitizing cleaning products to wipe down equipment used for demonstration/practice during class, before we arrive, and again after use
  • Check ourselves daily for fever, and before we come to you
  • Cancel (and reschedule or switch to a live virtual class) if we or anyone in our home, or anyone whom we’ve been in contact with, shows symptoms
  • Wear a mask and gloves while we are in your home, if you prefer
  • Provide physical distancing even during the class
  • We will also rely on you to let us know if anyone in your family has had any exposure to anyone with the virus, has traveled within the past 14 days, or has any signs of illness.

This informative Baby/Child CPR & First Aid Workshop runs approximately 1 hour in length and finishes when participants feel confident with their CPR & First Aid Skills.  After course reference materials and Safety Handouts are emailed to all participants after the training.  $98(tax included) per family. Up to 3 Households may stream in together.  Includes 2 free 2nd refresher spaces redeemable when it is safe and our public sessions resume.
