Our services are based on the philosophies of informed choice, empowerment and respectful care. We appreciate that many families have a desire to be active participants in their personal health care decisions and value being well informed of all options available. We have designed our workshops around these values, giving families a strong educational foundation to be fully prepared for all the ways labour and birth can unfold.
We offer a unique perspective and style of birth preparation by expanding on the teaching and informed choice discussions we do in our prenatal clinic, and incorporating insight from our specialized education and professional experiences as midwives. Each of our workshops is specifically designed to focus on particular aspects of the parenting journey as we believe pregnancy, birth, breastfeeding and the early years of parenting each deserve dedicated time to properly explore all of the nuances each stage encompasses.
We aim to offer parents an education option that is truly comprehensive and goes beyond the basics with the intention of supporting families to be better prepared to make empowered and informed decisions throughout parenthood. As mothers we truly understand the momentous nature of embarking on this new chapter of your life and we would be honoured to join you on this journey!

HOW ARE WE DIFFERENT?
Prenatal classes are typically taught by nurses, doulas or childbirth educators. We are the only primary maternity care providers offering comprehensive workshops in Calgary!
As midwives who currently deliver babies & mothers with young children ourselves, we offer a unique perspective & skill set for guiding your family on this journey.
As our clients you will be able to directly benefit from our extensive experience & in-depth knowledge of the Calgary health care system.
We provide access to our safe & respectful community through our online support groups & network of like-minded local practitioners. Our intention is to align health education with the continuous evolution of our connected world.
By combining tangible hands-on guidance with our online resources we aim to modernize the education experience to become more relevant for today's generation of parents.
WHY CHOOSE US?
Midwives have the lowest intervention rates for low risk births. We have the highest success rates for Vaginal Birth After Cesarean & the highest breastfeeding rates in Canada. This is due to our respect for the physiological process of birth & our personalized approach to complications when they arise.
Our workshops are the ideal complement to your prenatal health care if you are currently being cared for by midwives.
If you value the midwifery philosophy & are currently being cared for by doctors our workshops are a fantastic way to benefit from our midwifery expertise and strategies.
