Centering Pregnancy and Active Birth Class
At Birth Partnership, we offer a unique program of Centering Pregnancy classes and an Active Birth Class.
Centering Pregnancy is a set of 3 or 4 group prenatal classes, currently run via Zoom, which brings together our clients due in the same month with their midwives. It is a chance to spend extra time with your midwives, to create community with other expecting parents, and to learn and share. Classes start near the end of your second trimester and run weekly. Topics of discussion include all things breastfeeding, doulas, prenatal education classes, books and podcasts, preparing for labour, birth and postpartum, fears, preparing for the unexpected, emotional needs, pain management in labour, and success postpartum.
Active Birth Class is an evening class, currently run via Zoom, which brings together our clients, their partners, and the midwives the month prior to your due date. It is a change to learn or review our "Ready for baby" checklist, supplies for home and hospital birth, and when to "Call the Midwife"!
