Every woman walks through the journey of pregnancy with very different feelings toward birth. Some are excited and even anticipate the delivery, while others feel in the dark, have questions, and have no idea where to begin to look for answers for the many issues looming over them. You'll find out early on that many mothers that have gone before you will have a different voice and opinion about your birth experience, but the only thing that matters, is finding YOUR voice.
Our prenatal classes demystify the many questions you have surrounding your birth, by giving you a greater understanding of the labouring process and what you might expect during the weeks leading up to and during the birth of your baby. We've created a judgement-free space for you to voice your concerns, ask questions, and navigate the options you have, providing you with the information you want to help you plan for the birth that you hope for. Our goal is to take the fear of the unknown, while helping you learn to trust your body, your instincts, giving you and your partner the tools to feel confident going into your birth.
