Prenatal Classes

Due to Covid-19 our classes are now taught online click here for more details.

The Midwives Clinic offers prenatal classes taught by one of our registered midwives. The classes are open to our clients and the general public. Our classes are held at the clinic either in the evenings from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. for four weeks in a row or two consecutive weekend classes, i.e. two Saturdays in a row.
It is an interactive course with lots of discussion and time for questions. It is also a great opportunity to meet other people embarking on parenthood and form connections that can be invaluable, especially in that first year postpartum.
We recommend that couples register for a course that starts somewhere between 28 and 34 weeks pregnant. The prenatal class cost is $250.
The class covers many topics, including:
1) the anatomy and physiology of pregnancy
2) understanding the stages of labour and birth
3) comfort techniques for labour
4) variations of labour and common medical procedures
5) what happens after the baby is born
7) breastfeeding
8) your newborn
