Increase Your Confidence with Prenatal Classes...
You cannot orchestrate birth, but you can educate yourselves and learn how to increase your chances of a positive and healthy birth experience.
CCS provides comprehensive childbirth education classes based on the 6 healthy birth practices of Lamaze International. Lamaze is not new, but has ‘rebirthed’ their philosophy and as you prepare to meet your wee one, we offer the following options:
Weekend Essentials Class
For those with demanding schedules! This group class offers a slightly more condensed version of our 6 week class yet covers everything from labour and childbirth to breastfeeding and early parenting.
Childbirth Class Dates:
Held in Cochrane, AB: (Saturday)
6-week Group Class
One weekday evening, for 2 hours, we will meet. During our time together we will explore everything from late pregnancy, positioning for labor and birth, relaxation techniques, labor support, communication skills, massage ideas and information about common medical procedures, pain management options, breastfeeding, home-coming and early parenting.
Childbirth Class Dates:
Private Childbirth Education
Private education ensures that you receive individualized one-on-one labour, childbirth and early parenting information with a focus on topics important to you. This option allows us to choose the class date together and can be taught in the comfort of your own home or in my comfortable classroom.
The ideal time to attend prenatal classes is around 28-36 weeks of pregnancy. To guarantee availability you are encouraged to book your class early in your pregnancy.
All childbirth classes will explore topics including labor, birth and the postpartum period - birth to 3 months after baby has arrived.
Class content will promote pregnancy, childbirth and early parenting as normal and our curriculum is designed to reduce fear and instill confidence.
CCS childbirth classes offer small classes (max. 3-8 couples) to ensure a relaxed and personalized experience as you prepare for your best birth.
Most insurance providers and/or Health Spending Accounts (HSA) will reimburse for the costs of prenatal education classes taught by a certified childbirth professional.
