BIRTH PREPARATION WORKSHOPS

Our workshops are taught by Registered Midwives and are specifically designed to centre around preparing for labour, birth and your first hours with baby. You will build foundational knowledge, essential skills and labour support techniques to guide you through the physiological process of birth. A reoccurring theme throughout will be the current evidence and community practices that will be most relevant to your family. Our goal is to equip you with the tools and knowledge for an empowered and positive birth experience! 

 

Our services are designed to meet the needs of all families regardless of your maternity health care provider or intended place of birth. All of our prenatal classes are held at Aurora Midwifery in South East Calgary. The workshop fee includes registration for the birthing parent and their support person.

**COVID-19 Update September 2020**

Given the most recent recommendations from Alberta Health Services for continuous mask wearing and limiting the number of people during indoor events, we have have transitioned some of our workshops back to in-person sessions and will continue to offer some workshops via live online Zoom session to ensure everyone feels as safe and comfortable as possible! Please see the individual workshop page below for all the details.

 

Please feel free to contact us directly if you have significant financial barriers that are preventing you from being able to register in a workshop. We are always willing to work with families to overcome barriers to accessing the support they need.
