Second Time Around
in Winnipeg and Rural Manitoba
We are happy to offer *refresher* childbirth classes that are taught in the comfort of your own home and adapted to your busy schedule! These classes are perfect for parents who have taken a prenatal class before, are expecting their 2nd, 3rd, 4th baby… and who would like a refresher on childbirth and comfort measures before welcoming their newest addition, along with information specific to adjusting to life with more than one child! This class will cover a variety of topics, however, because of the individual nature of them, they will also be customized to your personal preferences and past experiences and knowledge.
These classes are great for anyone planning a hospital, home, or birth centre birth, with either an obstetrician (OB), family doctor, or midwife.
Topics you'll learn about:
- Preparing for Labour and Childbirth During Pregnancy
- Comfort Measures & Relaxation Strategies
- Pain Relief Options (including both Natural & Medicated options),
- Postpartum Care for Parents and Baby at your Place of Birth
- Postpartum Recovery
- Adjusting to Parenting and Life with a Larger Family, including Sibling Transitions and Adjustment
- Essentials for Breastfeeding the Next Time Around, Including Stategies for Breastfeeding with More than One Child
These classes are also helpful to learn more about the newest research and how things may have changed in the birth community in Winnipeg since the last time you gave birth.
Bean Family Wellness *Refresher* Prenatal Classes spend a majority of the class discussing labour and childbirth. These classes will teach you how to become empowered and confident for your birth, and help you to create a more positive pregnancy, birth, and postpartum experience. You will learn how to be an active participant in your birth, and how to include your partner and/or labour support team in your birth experience.
NOTE: This class is a review of information that you may have learned about in your first prenatal class, with an emphasis on topics of interest for subsequent babies. It is a great refresher on childbirth and comfort measures, and it is helpful for learning about adjustment with adding another baby to your family. If you or your partner have not taken a Prenatal Class in a past, please register for a Full Length Prenatal Class (Group or Private In-home).
