Covid-19 Response

While we are practicing physical distancing to slow the spread of the virus…

  • all classes are ONLINE, and

All class formats include a labour and birth handbook (available online), which contains useful articles and illustrations. Once the need for ‘physical distancing’ has eased, I will resume holding post-partum reunion several weeks after all the babies have been born. The reunion is primarily a social event, where couples can reconnect, admire babies and share birth stories.
