At rebirth, it's our mission to help parents be active participants in their birth experience. For the birthing person to be fully present and connected to the experience, to trust their body and inner strength, and make decisions that feel right for them...ultimately, to have a birth experience where they claim their power and feel a great sense of pride in the miracle of their creation.

And to help partners feel confident in their role as a support person, and more importantly, feel connected to the experience as a proud partner and parent (not just a ‘coach’).

We offer 2 great options for childbirth education - small group classes (6 couples),  and private, in-home classes scheduled at your convenience. 

Childbirth Education Class at Rebirth Wellness Centre

Rebirth's Childbirth Education offers a 1-day group class that focuses on childbirth and adjusting to life with your new baby. Taught by experienced instructors Rebecca Robertson and Michelle Maisonville in a comfortable, supportive, and intimate setting, participants will have the opportunity to explore, learn, and discuss. This course is ideal for parents-to-be planning a hospital or home birth.

Topics include the following:

  • personal beliefs, assumptions, and fears that could interfere with having the best possible birth experience
  • the signs & stages of labour
  • common medical interventions and alternatives
  • cesarean birth
  • practices that can reduce pain, fear, and distractions – such as breathing techniques, visualization, positive mind-set, positions for labour & birth, and other comfort measures. 
  • what to expect in those first few weeks of life with your new baby
  • ‘baby proofing’ your relationship – how to stay connected as partners & parents

Extras:

  1. a comprehensive information package
  2. one-week unlimited pass to all onsite postnatal classes at Rebirth (how awesome is that! and there's no expiry on this pass so come out when you're ready!)

Price: $149 + hst per couple
Schedule:  Saturdays or Sundays 9:30am - 4:30pm

Meditation for Pregnancy & Birth

Meditation for Pregnancy & Birth is the perfect supplement to our comprehensive Childbirth Education class.   As you enter this new season of life, be assured you can enter it with a sense of peace and calm, feeling confident, and knowing you have within you the ability to birth your baby, and be a wonderful parent. Rebirth's founder and psychotherapist, Jodi Tiller, will guide you in connecting to the emotional and mental aspects of birth, while you grow as a strong, capable birthing person. 

Classes take place the first and third Sunday of each month and are just $5 per person.  Partners welcome and encouraged.
