Prepare for birth and baby as you ask questions and learn what you need to know with our dynamic and engaging real time
platform. Discuss concerns and share
ideas, fears, joy and experiences with other expectant parents whose
babies are due around the same time as yours. There is a maximum of 11 couples per class.
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. Click here for more detail about topics covered.
The benefit of taking a series of classes instead of a one day crash course is that you you will actually learn more and remember more when the time comes to give birth, if you have shorter periods of class time, spread over several weeks. Studies show that squeezing all the hours together makes you remember less. Retention is increased when information is received in smaller amounts over time and with review and practice.You will also have the opportunity to come back and ask questions after practicing comfort measures at home and thinking about all the information that was covered in the previous class. In addition, even with scheduled breaks, it may be difficult for a pregnant woman to sit through the many hours of an all day group crash course.
