Private Classes

Oakville Family Birth specializes in private prenatal classes.

Private classes are taught in the comfort of your home, on your schedule. These classes are fun for both partners, friendly, realistic, practical and always judgement-free.

If you choose private classes, you’ll have the opportunity to select from a menu of topics to create a customized curriculum based on your needs and interests.

Here are just some of the topics you can choose to include in your customized curriculum:

  • How to communicate with your care providers and get your medical questions answered
  • Healthy pregnancy (nutrition, exercise, and coping with common symptoms and challenges)
  • How to prepare a birth plan or wish list
  • Signs of labour: what do we do now?
  • Labour and birth: what’s happening and why?
  • Positions for labour and birth
  • Natural comfort measures and pain relief
  • Medical pain relief
  • Birth partners: how to provide hands-on support
  • What to expect if you’re planning a cesarean birth (c-section)
  • VBAC (Vaginal Birth After Cesarean)
  • It’s a baby! Options and what to expect for the first hour after birth
  • Recovering from birth (the fourth trimester)
  • Feeding your baby (breastfeeeding, bottle feeding, formula, pumping and storing breastmilk)

We’ll arrange a time that works for you and I’ll bring everything I need to deliver an engaging and useful class. We’ll learn together about pregnancy, birth, recovery and baby care. You and your partner will try out positions for labour and practice comfort measures such as massages and relaxation techniques.

When we’re finished, you’ll have given yourself the knowledge and practical tools to feel informed, prepared and confident about your baby’s birth.

It’s all about YOU. We’ll go over everything you want to learn and you’ll have a chance to ask as many questions as you like. You’ll also receive an information packet filled with useful resources to use throughout your pregnancy, birth and postpartum period.
