Increase Your Confidence with Group 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 in Cochrane, Calgary and the surrounding area 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 group options: our one-day-class or a 6-week virtual class.
As with all of our childbirth education classes, content will promote pregnancy, childbirth and early parenting as normal. Our curriculum is designed to reduce fear and increase your confidence.
All group childbirth classes will explore the following topics:
In Person Option
One-Day-Group Childbirth Class (weekend)
Investment: $269.00* (this fee includes the birthing person and 1 support person)
Our weekend class is perfect for parents-to-be with demanding schedules! This one-day childbirth class offers a slightly more condensed version of our 6-week birthing class yet covers everything from labour and childbirth to breastfeeding and early parenting. A single day class commitment you'll never regret!
One-Day Childbirth Classes held in Cochrane, AB: (Saturday or Sunday)
Weekly Online Option
Virtual Group Class - going live for 6 weeks!
Weekly: Wednesday from 7:00pm - 9:00pm
Join us from the comfort of your home! This class is the perfect alternative when maintaining physical distancing recommendations, for those with limited mobility and pregnant people on bed rest.
Throughout the 6-week group class topics are presented in a variety of ways including: discussion, audio-visual means, shared experience, hands-on and couple work.
The ideal time to attend prenatal classes is around 28-37 weeks of pregnancy. To guarantee availability you are encouraged to book your class early in your pregnancy.
CCS childbirth education classes offer small classes (max. 3-8 couples) to ensure a relaxed and personalized experience as you prepare for your best birth. Can't find a group class that works with your schedule? Consider booking a private in-home childbirth class.
A registration fee of half the class cost is required to reserve your spot. This deposit is non-refundable and non-transferable. The balance is due 7-10 days prior to the class beginning.
Classes are designed and taught by Erin Moyen our certified, trusted and experienced childbirth educator who is also a breastfeeding support specialist, family sleep educator and doula.
Most insurance providers and/or Health Spending Accounts (HSA) will reimburse for the costs of prenatal education classes taught by a certified childbirth professional.
"We are so, so, so inexpressibly grateful that we were able to take your childbirth class, and to connect with you! In addition to your impeccable organization and the well paced structure of the class, we really appreciated feeling seen and heard by you. It was so special to have the learning experience be more of a "back and forth" rather than passive lecture style. More importantly, you really opened our eyes to how we might be able to feel empowered during our first birth experience. Several months ago I felt uncertain of what to expect, and a bit fearful of the process, but after your classes I don't feel scared at all! We both feel confident and prepared to handle whatever comes our way." -B.B.
"We can't thank you enough for all your teaching. We feel well informed and confident to birth our baby. It was such a nice, intimate atmosphere - thank you! We look forward to introducing you to our baby. Many thanks," -M. & L.G.
"Loved Erin's Birth Education Classes so much that we knew we needed her to be our Doula for our first child. Things did not go smoothly near the end of the pregnancy and we were so fortunate to have Erin there to help us through. Big Love for this woman and all she does!" -C.J.
