Prenatal Classes 

We offer prenatal classes throughout the year. These classes are for pregnant women and their partners who are delivering their babies at the Grey Nuns. First-time moms and moms who have given birth before are all welcome to attend our prenatal classes.

Classes teach expecting parents about: 

  • Labour
  • Birth (vaginal and cesarean delivery)
  • Postpartum care of mom and baby
  • Relaxation and breathing exercises
  • Breastfeeding 

Women normally attend these classes close to their seventh month of pregnancy.
