Birth Essence

During this 2 session workshop, individuals and families have the opportunity to familiarize themselves with the foundations + essentials of birth, the immediate postpartum journey and newborn care. This concise workshop is great for those that could benefit from a refresher or who are unable to commit to our 5-week series.

Please note that due to time constraints, this session does not include all activities and instruction that our 5 week childbirth education class does.

What we explore in class:

  • Anatomy of childbirth.

  • Physiology of birth + postpartum (including hormones).

  • Understanding the emotional + physical journey of birth and immediate postpartum experience.

  • Roles of your support members (and how they can help).

  • Comfort, coping + birth facilitation techniques.

  • Community connections.

  • And more.

You will also enjoy:


  • A guidebooks + handouts emailed to you.

  • Small learning materials packet (optional).

  • Supportive space to gain insight, confidence & ask questions.

  • Time to connect with yourself, your baby + birth partner.

  • Complimentary 30 min. Zoom follow-up (optional).

In-person public sessions take place at the Prairie Midwives Clinic (lower level) in Red Deer, AB. Live virtual sessions take place via ZOOM. If you’re interested in accessing our group classes but are inhibited because of financial barriers, please reach out about our accessibility options.
