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.
Given the most recent recommendations from Alberta Health Services to limit non-essential group gatherings, we have decided to put a hold on all our in-person workshops and transition to live video conferencing for the foreseeable future. This will allow us to stay as close to our workshop style as possible and maintain our sense of community through virtual group discussions and activities. We are hopeful that in the coming months we will once again be able to gather as a group for our workshops!
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.
