Prenatal Education Tailored to You

I know how important it is to have access to evidence-based resources while you are pregnant.  Quality prenatal classes and information help mothers feel prepared for birth, and families ready to bring their newborns home.  I offer the option of a private, or group classes — virtual or in-home!   

PRIVATE PRENATAL CLASS:

$250 per couple

Are you busy trying to prepare for your new baby’s arrival?  Maybe you have what feels like a million questions or a unique pregnancy circumstance and would like a class specifically tailored to you.  If this sounds like something you would benefit from, then my private prenatal class will help you feel more confident and prepared for your upcoming delivery. This 3-4 hour private session is as interactive as you’d like it to be.  We will spend the entire session talking about your specific pregnancy, birth wishes, and baby’s growth and development.

This session will help you and your partner feel confident about the birth of your baby and what to expect the first months of bringing them home. There will be a hands-on practice portion at the end of each day that includes swaddling, infant massage, as well as an Infant CPR Manikin to practice the valuable skill of infant CPR. The Mama Coach prenatal education was created by Carrie Bruno (founder of The Mama Coach) based on over 12+ years experience as a labour and delivery nurse and lactation consultant.

About Kendra

Hello Mama’s (and Papa’s)

I am a wife to an amazing, hardworking husband and mom to three boys with one more on the way in July!

My first son was born three weeks early in the hospital. We had an extended postpartum stay due to my monitoring for preeclampsia. He didn’t sleep longer than 4 hour stretches until 8 months old, when I read many books to figure out how to compassionately sleep train him.

My second was an accidental water birth at the Arbour Birth Center in Calgary. He later was diagnosed with a PDA (hole in his heart) that was repaired at the Stollery Hospital in Edmonton. He also struggled with a Cow Milk Protein allergy that he has grown out of.

My third was a quick home birth with the midwife arriving just in time to catch him! Postpartum adjustment was the hardest with him as he was not a natural feeder like his brothers and increased postpartum cramping left me needing more assistance than before. He also had a gap in growth for approximately 3 months which required further dietician and pediatrician support.

With my three boys I have learned astutely that every child is unique. What works for one, may certainly not work for another. Children are a great joy, nursing is a beautiful vocation, and I am so excited to be combining these two passions!

It takes a village to raise a child and I would be honoured to be a part of the village by providing evidence informed, compassionate, and non-judgmental support wherever you may need. Contact me to set up a free 15 minute check in and I’d love to hear you out!

Parenting ain’t easy, but it’s worth it!
