What is prenatal education?

Prenatal education is ideal for those having babies for the first time or for those who would like a refresher. Knowing what to expect during pregnancy and how to manage once the baby is born will help to build your confidence as a new parent.

A public health nurse will teach expectant parents about the late stages of pregnancy, labour and birthing, relaxation, post-partum care of mom and baby, breastfeeding, and the transition to parenting. You will also be provided with information to help you make informed decisions with your health care provider.



When should I register?

Classes are recommended around your 6th or 7th month of pregnancy. Register as soon as possible to reserve a spot in class. One registration per couple.
