Event description

Description

If you are a first-time parent, or an experienced parent who wants to feel better-prepared for the birth of your child, a prenatal class is an excellent way to help you feel confident and well-informed as you approach childbirth.

As Childbirth Educators, we offer non-biased information, support, encouragement, guidance, referrals, and education to families during pregnancy.

Classes include information on the following topics and are presented in a variety of methods, including group discussions, videos, and hands-on activities:

  • Healthy pregnancies
  • The biology of labour and birth
  • Birth options
  • Comfort measures, including tools for both natural and medicated pain relief
  • Interventions
  • Newborn care and breastfeeding
  • Resources

Classes will:

  • Prepare you for birth, boost your confidence, and dispel many myths about labour
  • Empower expectant women and their partners to make informed decisions
  • Inform expectant parents about early parenthood challenges such as breastfeeding, handling fatigue, and basic infant care
  • Educate partners and help them understand the mechanics of labour
  • Provide an unbiased space to learn about all of your labour options

Taught by a Lamaze Certified Childbirth Instructor

Question: Isn't Lamaze all about breathing?

Answer: It's a myth that Lamaze is all about breathing. The reality is the goal of Lamaze education is to increase a women's confidence in her innate ability to give birth. Breathing techniques are just one of the many things that help women in labour. We will be exploring all of the options available to help you birth with confidence as well as the six healthy birth practices for a safe and healthy birth.

We are very excited for you to attend our Childbirth Education Classes. When you register for these classes we require pre-registration and we will reserve a spot just for you!

I want a epidural, are these classes still relevant for me?

In our Lamaze childbirth education classes will be discussing everything pregnancy related. This ranges from pregnancy, childbirth and beyond into those early postpartum days with your new little one. We will educate you on the options that you will have for pain management, the pros and cons of each and other ways to increase comfort throughout your labor, the more natural ways to approach childbirth. Our Lamaze classes incorporate the labor and birth process so you understand and know what is going on. It’s not just about pain management and breathing technique, it’s about informing women about their choices so when they go into labour, they go in confidently and prepared. We respect individual choices You can’t plan birth or anesthetics schedule but you can educate yourself to be prepared for any situation.

When should I register for these classes?

In general we encourage families to sign for these classes as soon as you can to ensure your spot in the class. Often families find it helpful to attend when they are late in your second trimester or early in your third trimester. It’s important to have the classes close enough to your due date that the information is fresh but in enough time to receive all of the information, just incase your baby wants to meet you earlier than expected.
