Classes

We are currently offering most of our classes in person, in the St. Vital area

We highly recommend taking a childbirth preparation class to educate you on the physiology of birth, the medical options available in Manitoba, and some tips for how to have a positive birth and early postnatal experience.

We offer a variety of classes for before and after baby’s arrival, applicable for both first time and repeat parents.
