Prenatal education is the first step to an empowering birth experience. Feeling like an active, informed decision-maker prior to and during your labour and childbirth is the key to birth satisfaction. Knowledge is essential for confidence and self-advocacy.
If you are expecting a baby this fall or early winter and are looking for prenatal education that works for you, you're in luck! I am offering a full series of Prenatal Classes at the Centre for Social Innovation (Annex) from August 15th until September 19th. Classes will take place Wednesday evenings from 6:30-9:00 pm.
Now, you may be asking yourself, "why would I pay for prenatal classes when I can just attend the free ones at the hospital?" This is a great question and there are a number of excellent reasons. For answers to this question and information about the series, please visit my website.
This course is ideal for people expecting to give birth between October and December of 2012. If you would prefer to pay by cheque at the first class, you can also register by emailing me (firstname.lastname@example.org). The cost for the series is $240 per couple. Package deals available for doula clients - please contact me directly for more information. Attendance is capped at twelve people - register today to hold your spot
