Birth Better Class Options
Online Birth Better classes are perfect for the modern mom! Offered in the comfort of your own home (or wherever you want!), this course conveniently works to suit your schedule. Much like the other course offerings, it is set up in a series of 4 lessons. Each lesson is taught by video, and all course lecture videos are then supplemented with lots of instructional teaching videos for you to learn and practice from.
The cost of the online series is only $99!
Birth Better Classes are now being offered as one 5-hr session. The class will cover everything you wanted to know about how to protect the pelvic floor, as well as details about birthing positions, how to push, and natural forms of pain relief. Partners are invited to learn hands-on skills, and lots of tools and tricks to help a birthing mama. Small class sizes allow for lots of hands-on practice time and offer a great opportunity for feedback.
The cost of the group session is $150 per couple and includes online access as well.
There are 2 upcoming workshop sessions on October 21, 2018 and November 18, 2018 (each class runs from 12:30pm-5:30pm at the Lucina Centre). Please see below to register.

Birth Better Classes can also be offered as a series of 1-on-1 sessions for both mom and her partner. Much like the group classes, 1-2 sessions are spent individually with mom, and then there are another 1-2 follow-up visits that include your birth partner. Private sessions provide a wonderful opportunity for lots of specific feedback, and individualized tips for your body. They also have the added benefit of being covered as physiotherapy by most benefit plans. Standard physiotherapy rates apply.
