Private *Refresher* Prenatal Classes
in Winnipeg and Rural Manitoba
Congratulations on your pregnancy! Choose Bean Family Wellness to help prepare you for your birth experience (your 2nd, 3rd, or 4th baby!).
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 and who would like a refresher on the 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.
Topics you'll learn about:
-Preparing for Labour and Childbirth During Pregnancy
-A brief overview of the Physiologic Process of Labour and Childbirth
- Discussion and Practice of Comfort Measures.
- Pain Relief Options for Childbirth (including both natural and medication options to inform you of your choices)
- The Immediate Postpartum Experience
- Postpartum Care for Parents and Baby at your Place of Birth
- Newborn Care, including soothing techniques, sleep for baby, kangaroo care, and more!
- Postpartum Recovery and Support, including Adjusting to Parenting and Life with a Larger Family,
- Sibling Transitions and Adjustment
These classes are great for anyone planning a hospital, home, or birth centre birth, with either an obstetrician (OB), family doctor, or midwife.
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 have not taken a Prenatal Class in a past, please register for a Full Length Prenatal Class (Group or Private In-home).
