Continuing Education

Prenatal & Parenting

What's Best for Baby checklist

Prenatal

Prenatal classes help parents make informed choices by providing education regarding pregnancy, labour, and birth. We support clients of midwives and physicians. Our instructors are nurses with specializations in lactation, childbirth, prenatal and post-natal care.

Classes are taught in the newly renovated room at Victoria General Hospital and include a hospital tour led by the instructor. We teach stages of pregnancy, stages of labour, preparing for labour and delivery including labour techniques, interventions and options during labour and delivery, and caring for mom and baby.

Private prenatal classes

Our private classes are gaining in popularity for couples with conflicting schedules or limited availability.We will arrange one-on-one instruction for you, including a tour.  The tuition for a private class ranges from $275 to $425 depending on the duration, and may be shared with a friend for a semi-private class.
