Ready to Birth is our newest prenatal class. Get your pelvic floor ready for delivery, learn labour coping and pushing techniques, and get answers to your most pressing questions about birthing in these 1.5 hour sessions, taught by a midwife. The final, 4-hour class (on a weekend day) is for partners to attend too, and includes maternal recovery and essential baby care instruction, with plenty of Q & A time.
Class is $195 for five sessions. Class is held on 4 consecutive weekday evenings for 1.5 hours, followed by a 4-hour weekend class that partners are encouraged to attend.
All classes are held in the 1000 square foot studio at Evymama, 1345 St. Clair Avenue West in Toronto.

This was such a great class. I was initially expecting a focus on the physical aspect of birth, but the mix of relaxation, training, and discussion about all aspects of late pregnancy, birth, and postpartum care were a welcome addition. I've made some great friends and the small class size is pretty amazing. Very happy to have taken the class and I am looking forward to pelvic floor rehab later this spring.
This class should be mandatory for all expecting parents, regardless if it’s your first or third, it is what got me thru my 36hr labour and has made my recovery so much better. The doctors were so impressed at how well I moved and pushed during labour. Heike is so incredibly knowledgeable and truly cares for each of us there!
This class was awesome. As a second time Mum my pelvic floor needed all the help it could get and this class was the perfect gentle exercise to help it. I learned so much from Heike about labour, delivery and newborn care despite having already gone through it all once! It was also a great way to enjoy my pregnancy and take some time to intentionally focus on the new baby and myself. Highly recommend!
