            The Prenatal Childbirth Class

Sarah and Sonja have created a full day, comprehensive Prenatal Childbirth Class for new parents and caregivers! We believe it is the only one of its kind in the area, and will provide new parents with the necessary confidence, tools and resources that they need to feel equipped to bring a new life forward.

The first Prenatal Childbirth Class will be hosted on September 25th, 2021 from 9-4pm. Some topics we will cover are:

  • comfort measures
  • immediate postpartum new parent and baby needs
  • breastfeeding supports from birth
  • nutrition and exercise
  • stages and phases of labour
  • warning signs
  • pregnancy discomforts
  • natural labour supports
  • risks and benefits of interventions
  • pain theories
  • anatomy and physiology 
  • cesarean birth 

Our goals are to:

  • provide birth options
  • supporting various learning styles 
  • support couples mental health, connection and partnership pre and postnatally
  • inclusive environment
  • explore fears
  • make lasting connections with other expectant families
  • explore alternatives to medical interventions
  • build skills for the new baby period

Cost is $145 + HST per couple. Single persons please email us directly for a reduced rate. Limited spots are available as we are covid-19 conscious. We will stop for a one hour lunch.

This class will be facilitated by child birth educator, postpartum doula, mother, lactation educator, pelvic floor and core consultant, La Leche League leader yoga & meditation educator, and experienced hypno birther, Sonja Martin. Co facilitator Sarah Susnar an ECE, mother, certifying sleep consultant, lactation educator and postpartum doula.
