Pregnancy brings up a lot of feelings, like a mix of excitement and… fear? We know how it feels to be worried about how things will go the day you give birth.
Are you tired of feeling like:
“I don’t think I can do this”
“My OB is not taking my concerns seriously”
“How can I prepare when I don’t know what to expect?”
“I want to do what’s best for me and my baby, but I don’t know where to start”
It’s hard to find caring support and education. We at YDD are a group of naturopathic doctors that are committed to prepare you so that you feel calm and confident during labour and childbirth.
Our hearts break when we hear families feeling unprepared for birth. That’s why we’ve created the YDD prenatal class for parents just like you. We have been in your shoes and have experienced our own pregnancy to childbirth journey. We understand your fears because we have been there. As doulas we have taught and accompanied hundreds of mothers and parents who have given birth.
We observed and we listened.
From our collective experience we created the YDD prenatal class.
What to expect in our prenatal class
Our prenatal program is eligible for coverage under your third party insurance as naturopathic services. Available for residents of Ontario only. Classes may be offered in-person or virtually, depending on COVID restrictions in place at the time.
Our approach to prenatal education is different than your typical hospital prenatal class:
- You will learn and practice practical relaxation exercise that you will use during labour
- Your partner will learn how to be a great birth partner
- You will learn the stages of labour and birth from a non-fear based approach
- You will consider your birth plan so you feel educated and empowered about what to expect and how to manage labour and birth
- Your instructor is a naturopathic doctor* and doula with knowledge and expertise to answer your questions and concerns. She can tailor the classes to suit the unique needs of your pregnancy and birthing situation
- We celebrate the miracle and power of pregnancy and childbirth!
We’re committed to helping you feel calm and confident for labour and childbirth!
