Childbirth Education Elevated.
We have elevated the traditional prenatal education experience for Calgary parents. Our group classes offer the opportunity to build community with other families, while providing a comprehensive and engaging curriculum to prepare you for your baby’s arrival. We have a large learning space, and use a variety of teaching methods and technology to make you look forward to come back every week.
Our 7 Week Comprehensive Group Childbirth Education series will cover all you need to feel confident and prepared for the arrival of your new addition, all while helping you build a supportive community of parents to lean on while you go through this adventure. The first four classes will focus on childbirth & recovery. Class five will teach you everything you need to know about newborn care. Class six is dedicated to breastfeeding and other infant feeding methods. And lastly, class 7 will walk you through parenting in the first year and relationships after baby.
Our Weekend Comprehensive Group Childbirth Education Series offers the same education, but in a compressed time frame.
All students will be provided with a work book to take home full if information that will help you remember everything that you learned as well as access to Welcome Baby Co's client resource section of the website.
Plan to be prepared. Planned to be confident.
We recommend booking your classes so they are completed around, or before the 37th week of pregnancy.
The most customizable Calgary Prenatal classes.
Childbirth Education classes are an important piece of the puzzle when it comes to preparing and empowering yourself for your upcoming birth.
As a Lamaze Certified Childbirth Educator offering private prenatal classes, I am able to tailor my curriculum to meet the specific needs of you and your partner, and help prepare you for the birth you want. You will also learn important skills such a breastfeeding, newborn care and early parenting strategies.
These classes will happen from the comfort of your own home (or mine!) and will be scheduled at times that work for you. Or they can happen virtually on your computer!
Whether you are first time parent, or adding a sibling to your family, no matter if you are planning a home birth, a cesarean, delivering multiples, or not sure what your options are – these classes will work for you!
I take the time to talk with you about your pregnancy and goals for your birth as well as plans for after baby arrives. I then design a program that ensures all your questions are answered so that when we are done you will feel confident in your ability to make informed decisions throughout the rest of your pregnancy, birth, and postpartum journey!
Lamaze is so much more than the breathing techniques we are known for. Lamaze welcomes and respects all individuals and families on this journey from every corner of the world. Our goal is simple: we want all parents to feel confident, supported and powerful as they ask questions, make decisions, and navigate their path through pregnancy, birth and parenthood.
The Lamaze approach can help you prepare for your upcoming birth and set you up for a successful start to your parenting journey.
This course is designed for first time parents (or those looking for an extensive education series - the complete prenatal class!) and will cover all aspects needed to prepare you for a healthy pregnancy, birth and positive early parenting experience. We will really focus on your pregnancy and wishes for your birth and baby. Because this class is private we can spend as much time on any topic as you need to feel confident as you move through this transformative experience into parenting. This series can be broken up to fit your schedule best. It could be done as a 2-day weekend course or broken up over the course of your pregnancy into 2- or 3-hour classes. Topics covered include:
This series is designed for the parent that doesn’t have a lot of time or a schedule that doesn’t allow for longer prenatal classes. It is also suitable for families who are becoming parents again and are feeling like a refresher course could benefit their next birth. We will still cover everything you need to prepare for a positive and healthy birth and early parenting experience, just in a more condensed way. The benefit to this class being private is that we can really focus on your situation and wishes. This series can be broken up into two, 3 hours classes or a one-day course. Topics covered include:
*Please note that the condensed class does not cover all topics in the same depth that the 12 hour classes will.
Most of us are aware of the benefits that breastfeeding can provide for both the mother and the child but at the same time we are aware of how hard getting breastfeeding off to a good start can be. It doesn’t have to be a struggle. This prenatal breastfeeding course will teach you everything you need to know to get off on the right foot when your little one arrives. Partners are strongly encouraged to attend. In this 3 hour class we will cover:
