Birthing Class

Our Birthing Classes* are designed to equip expectant mothers and their spouses with information to ease their anxiety about childbirth. The classes help to build confidence in the body's ability to give birth naturally. It is an opportunity for couples with the same concerns to discuss their fears about labour and birthing with the instructor and with one another.

Pain relief options, including massage, relaxation and breathing will be taught and discussed. The husband will learn how he can contribute to the birthing process.

Breastfeeding classes offer couples practical guidelines on breastfeeding especially after the mother resumes work.
