We welcome you and a partner or support person to join our nurses from the Women's and Childbirth Services Unit for this two-part class to prepare you for the birth of your baby and your first weeks at home with your little one.  Many parents find that attending childbirth classes provides the knowledge and techniques to approach the upcoming birth and newborn period with confidence and skill. 

The 2-Night series is designed to provide an overview of essential birth and newborn care concepts, while being convenient to busy schedules. We recommend taking the course 4-8 weeks prior to your due date.

Night 1: Labor & Birth. You and your partner will review stages of labor, labor positions, relaxation techniques, medical procedures and pain management. 

Night 2: Breastfeeding & Newborn Care.  You and partner will learn tips and tricks to help you and your baby get a great start to breastfeeding to ensure long term success! Learning the basics of newborn care as well as typical newborn behavior can make these early weeks extra special and make the transition to your growing a family a smooth one.
