Taking a prenatal education class can change your life. 

If you're expecting or supporting someone who is having a baby, do not miss our Birth + Baby Prep School

Join Steph and Jenn for 1 weekend of valuable information that will completely alter your birth, newborn and postpartum experience. 

No matter how smooth and straightforward your pregnancy has been, whether you're having a vaginal or a cesarean birth, the truth is you're headed into the unknown because birth is out of your control. When you take a prenatal education class, you feel more in control. Birth is not something that is happening to you, YOU are giving birth and what is most important is that you are the one making the decisions along the way. This is the foundation of our class and something you won’t find offered anywhere else!

Not only do we talk about what to expect for the birthing person, 50% of our class is focused on teaching dads/partners how to support the birthing person and take care of themselves. #teamwork right?

Our unique positive and empowering focus on birth, newborns and the 4th trimester and supportive partners is what sets us apart from other classes. Equipping yourself with the information and skills you need allows you to make the decisions you want, even when you come to a crossroads. 

When you know what to expect including what your body and baby are going to be doing, and what your health care team is going to be doing, then you have space to have a positive, enjoyable, fun and supported birth that doesn't leave you asking what the (enter your favourite swear word here) just happened?

Get excited! Get on the same page! Get ready for a fun, hard-working, and positive experience!
