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.

What to bring to class:
  • Baby's Best Chance (free from public health offices)
  • Two pillows and one blanket
  • Clothing suitable for floor exercises
  • Change for parking ($2.75 per 2 hours, subject to change)
  • Food and drinks for day-long classes
