A BETTER BIRTH 2021-09-23T18:38:18+00:00

 

A BETTER BIRTH. The Ultimate Holistic Education to Prepare You for the Big Day.

(for our ALL ABOUT BABY class, click here)

The province of British Columbia is requiring proof of vaccination before entering gatherings. We are also mandated by health guidelines to uphold the provincial regulations, and our groups and other education group are directly affected. 
We had anticipated moving into an in-person space but are unable to do so at this time. All Birth is not planning on confirming proof of vaccination, nor do we anticipate our group of pregnant families, many of whom have made the choice to not vaccinate in pregnancy, to provide proof of such. Please know it is always in our minds and desire to protect our vulnerable clients and to adhere to both Interior Health and provincial guidelines.

We are continuing with a virtual space for your class. Our sessions are valuable, are live and interactive, and also provide an important group experience that has all you need to feel confident in your labour, birth and postpartum.

A Better Birth is our Popular Prenatal Birth Class with you in mind.

A SATURDAY RETREAT!  We offer unique and holistic education and we value your time. We have taken all the best parts of our knowledge and condensed it into one day. You will feel informed, educated and prepared for childbirth. We provide our clients with a binder of important information and resources with birth knowledge, partner + breastfeeding support and what to expect for the postpartum .

This education and practice day is for the birthing person plus her partner or support person.

“My wife and I took the All Birth class with Kathleen via Zoom. It was great to learn about the different stages of labour and the best ways to support my wife through the whole process. I would highly recommend this class for other first time parents”

“Because of COVID the A Better Birth class was done virtually which was absolutely fantastic. Such an amazing resource and support, would HIGHLY recommend.”

“My husband and I attended the All Birth prenatal class over Zoom, and found the class to be an invaluable resource for our birth and postpartum process.” 

“We took the A Better Birth prenatal class, and due to COVID restrictions it was held by Zoom. Everyone was a part of the conversations and discussion. We both learned valuable information and came away from the class feeling ready to take on the birth experience!”

“I attended one of Kathleen’s prenatal classes with my partner. It was a full day and worth every penny to attend! She is passionate and put a lot into her knowledge-sharing, with details and hands-on demonstrations. My partner and I feel a lot more confident about the birth process because we understand how things might unfold, and why.”

“Not only did we get just what we were hoping for but we also had a really great time.”

“This was the best investment we made for our family.”

“Your class helped us embrace birth and parenting with comfort and ease.”
