What makes us different from other prenatal classes?

This isn't your average prenatal class! Our in person workshop is a great alternative to the traditional classes, offering an interactive, connective, and hands-on experience while providing you with everything you need to know. It's a full day - we call it a "full-day immersive" for a reason!
 

Through compassionate and honest preparation, we will guide you through everything you need to know and introduce practices & exercises to cope with the intensity of labour - for both the birthing person and the birth partner!

Experience an intimate, comfortable, and safe group space to discover what it means to "birth from within."

Giving birth, supporting your partner in birth and becoming a parent is a big deal! Join our upcoming group workshop and see why our class is different.
