Expecting Miracles Childbirth Classes
* Now two prenatal class options to choose from
First Time Mothers Prenatal Classes
Are you looking for prenatal classes that are tailored toward your beliefs and goals for the birth of your first baby? Are you desiring a comfortable environment with very knowledgeable & experienced educators? We, as educators, are very passionate about our philosophy of birth. We believe that pregnancy, birth, and breastfeeding are normal, natural, and healthy parts of a woman’s life.
The goal of our childbirth classes is to empower you to believe in your body and its amazing ability to grow, birth, and nurture your baby. Our desire for every woman is a satisfying childbearing experience. We feel privileged and honored to facilitate you on your journey to becoming a mother.
Our classes are committed to meeting the needs of each participant and creating a intimate, comfortable environment. For first-time parents, we will thoroughly cover several topics, including important aspects of late pregnancy; quality education around your birthing day including the physical process of labor, emotional and spiritual aspects of labor, comfort measures, positions, birth environment and support; and information to give you a great start with baby care, breastfeeding, and early parenting.
Whether you are giving birth in the hospital or home, or if you want to know more about water birth, we will cover whatever is important to you . We also include a tour of the Maternity Unit at UHNBC (our local hospital).
Second Time Mothers Childbirth Classes
There are already some great options for prenatal classes in Prince George. However, we have found that there are many women who already have one or more children, but are hesitant to take prenatal classes because they wonder if it will be worth it for them. We are hoping to respond to this need by offering a class just for pregnant women who have already experienced birth in one form or another.
Maybe you’re looking for a bit of a refresher, but not every detail a first-timer would be needing. Our classes aim to honor your previous experience with pregnancy, birth, and parenting, while providing solid, thorough information.
Many women are grieving from their first birth experiences and are looking for something different this time around. Our classes are based on the belief that women can experience not only natural, but profoundly satisfying birth experiences if given the chance. We desire to help women to heal from past birth trauma and empower them to experience something better.
Or, perhaps you’ve had one or more cesarean sections and are pursuing a vaginal delivery for this birth (VBAC). Our classes will include a component especially for women who desire a VBAC.
