Equipping Parents With Practical Tools

At Graceful Birth our goal is to equip parents-to-be with practical tools and information to help foster a better birth and postpartum experience.

Childbirth Prep One Day Workshop

Covering the Basics of Childbirth. Plus An Extensive Manual with Online Videos and Worksheets.  This workshop is designed to equip couples with well-rounded childbirth information. This class will also spend a significant amount of time focusing on relaxation techniques from various sources including Lamaze®, HypnoBirthing® and Birthing from Within®. You will also learn and practice massage techniques, and breathing exercises to help prepare the mind and body for childbirth. We will be working towards an understanding of the Natural Childbirth method. This class will also provide the birth companion with tips on how to help the labouring mom stay comfortable and focused during labour and birth.

Other topics we will touch on:

  • The stages of labour. How do I know I’m in labour?
  • Understanding “labour room” terminology. What’s happening to my body in labour?
  • Medical options for pain management. What are my pain medication options at the hospital?
  • Postpartum recovery. How long will it take for my body to heal after I have a baby?

All prenatal material will be provided, including an extensive online program which covers topics not included in class.

What Our Clients Say About Our Classes:

My husband and I attended a private one-day prenatal course given by Grace. I can’t believe how much information we covered and we were still able to get all our questions answered. Having our class in a private setting allowed for more one on one attention and we were able to customize our class to exactly what we wanted to cover. Grace is warm and hospitable and we would recommend her services to anyone preparing for both the pre- and postnatal experiences. A huge thanks to Grace!

— Andrea & Don

We really enjoyed your classes!  We will definitely refer your business to other friends.  It made a world of a difference and I feel ready to take on birth.
