Serenity Birth Studio prenatal classes

Our “Preparing for Birth” prenatal classes will provide you with a wealth of information about pregnancy, labor, birth, postpartum, breastfeeding and baby care to support you in actively participating in your birth.  Birth partners will be provided with a variety of techniques to support you during childbirth as having an educated & prepared support person is vital to your overall experience.

We will cover everything from stages of labour, coping techniques, caring for a newborn and infant feeding.
