Early Pregnancy

 

Congratulations on your pregnancy! It is wonderful that you are taking steps towards better understanding your baby’s development and ways to care for your pregnancy.

 

The Birth and Babies on-line course link is developed to assist your learning. Flip through it to find information to help you understand prenatal care, common discomforts, nutrition, exercise, physical and emotional changes and also warning signs and what to do in those situations.

Each Health Centre (HC) offers interactive prenatal classes either held over one weekend, or as a series one evening a week for five weeks.

We offer a variety of options to meet everyone’s needs. The series classes present the information in shorter 2 hour sessions over five weeks. There are also weekend classes that condenses the information into an eight hour session. Classes are small to allow time for interaction and discussions.

 

Topics include signs and stages of labour, when to go to the hospital, breathing and relaxation, decision-making, medical procedures, breastfeeding, baby care, and more!

Come and learn the need to know information to get you started on your breastfeeding journey! Topics include how to tell if your baby is hungry, signs of fullness, breastfeeding positions for beginners and signs of good latching. We will also cover how to tell if your baby is getting enough milk, common breastfeeding challenges and when/how to find skilled breastfeeding help.

 

Breastfeeding content is included in the series classes and many weekend classes, or as a standalone class at various locations. Please call for more information.
