This workshop is perfect for anyone looking to learn skills that will help them work through the intensity of labour and birth together with a partner. Whether you are a first time parent or having your second or third baby, touch can play an important role in managing your labour together with your partner.
Taking a prenatal education class is definitely NOT just for moms. Dads have a lot to learn and typically don't spend as much time during those 40 weeks of pregnancy reading up on cervical changes, contractions, and other birthy stuff. But, if they want to be there for you during labour then getting on the same page is a must !
Choosing the right prenatal education class is super important! We have some tips of how to choose a class that is the right fit for you and what Hello, Baby! has to offer the growing families of Peterborough.
Too often we think about “bouncing back” from pregnancy, ignoring the important new changes to our bodies and lives.

Find out about how you can support healing and a smooth transition into your life after birth!

Braxton Hicks contractions are sometimes called “pre-labour contractions” or "practice contractions" and are simply the muscles of your uterus contracting. So... why do they happen and what can you do about it?
The problem with most lactation cookies is simple: they are cookies! Most lactation cookies are full of sugar & fat and don’t have a whole lot of nutritional value which is really what your focus should be throughout your postpartum period, especially if you are breastfeeding. That being said, for many people they really do work wonders for boosting supply so, what is a lactating person to do?! Make a healthy, nutrient packed, galactagogue loaded Lactation Bites, of course!
Learning what to expect from your body and your baby means you will feel positive and empowered when you feel those first exciting contractions!
