  • When should I take my prenatal class?

    It is recommended to take your prenatal class at the end of your second or the beginning of your third trimester. Taking the prenatal class at approximately 28-32 weeks will ensure everything is fresh in your memory. You will also gain the knowledge far enough in advance to plan for your birth with confidence.

    However, there is no set rule to when to take your class and in some cases depending on your pregnancy is progressing, you may even want to take your class earlier.

    We have written a full blog on when to take your prenatal class which provides a lot more detail on the timing around taking your prenatal class.

  • How far in advance should I book my prenatal class?

    Prenatal classes in Oakville are always in demand; both private and public health care classes will regularly book out weeks in advance due to limited spaces available.

    We recommend booking as early as you are comfortable with. We understand that life is busy and by booking early you will get the date that suits both you and your partner’s schedule.

    Our classes are regularly booked out which means the dates disappear from our website, we also keep our small and intimate so there is a maximum of 6 couples per class.

  • Do I need a partner to attend the prenatal class?

    Our classes are priced for you to bring someone along with you. We encourage you to bring along your partner, sister, mother, friend, or whoever will be supporting you with the birth and in the immediate postpartum period.

    The classes will help your partner understand more about what to expect during labour and birth and we think this class could be really important for them because we will review the partner’s role, and how they can best support you during labour and birth, as well.
