TMC Prenatal Classes

Due to Covid-19 and the ongoing need for social distancing, The Midwives Clinic is happy to be able to have prenatal classes through Zoom and share in this important and exciting time in your lives. The class will help you feel more confident and prepared for labour, birth and life with your newborn. The class is taught by experienced and enthusiastic educator Sarilyn Zimmerman. Sarilyn as a practicing midwife has attended labour and births in the community for over 26 years.

The prenatal classes are in two sessions of 3.5 hours each.  The sessions are usually held on the weekend from 1- 4:30pm. In the first class the focus is on normal labour and birth and learning skills and comfort measures to assist your partner through labour. The second class you will learn about possible medical procedures and then what to expect after the baby is born including newborn and breastfeeding basics.

A reasonable time to take the classes is between 26 weeks and 37 weeks gestation. But anytime that works for you is fine.

The cost is $100 for the 2 classes or by donation. Fifteen dollars per registration will be given to the Food Bank as a way of supporting our community. For more details and how to register please email Sarilyn at TMCprenatalclass@gmail.com or text/call Sarilyn at 416-795-6473.

“This was a fantastic class! We got so much out of it. I thought that a prenatal class might make me more nervous about labour and delivery, but it had the opposite effect! I feel confident and excited!! Thank you!”
