Parents still need education and we are here to provide it.

Dear Valued Clients, we are monitoring this situation very closely to ensure the health and safety of our clients. 

During social distancing, each of our Labour and Birth Preparation and Life with Baby classes will run as a two hour, live virtual workshop for each family.  You may choose any day of the week between 10am and 8pm (last class of the day runs 6pm-8pm).
The cost per family is $75 (tax included) for each two hour virtual workshop and up to 3 households can stream in together for each session.

Our in home, private classes may be scheduled IF you meet screening criteria.

Regular group classes will commence at the Ellesmere Community Recreation Centre when it re-opens.
