Our Classes

We are proud to offer

Bringing Baby Home

For our group classes, we ask that all participants keep their video on throughout the class. Similar to an in-person class, this creates a sense of community and safety. If you prefer not to be seen, we recommend a private one on one session with one of our instructors.

Our Bringing Baby Home class is a hands-on parenting class for expectant parents including

  • How to decide what items to purchase for life with baby
  • Basic baby care including bathing, swaddling
  • The difference between cloth and disposable diapers and diaper service
  • Benefits of babywearing and the opportunity to try different baby carriers
  • Breastfeeding, Infant Feeding and introducing solids
  • What you need to know when purchasing a car seat for your baby
  • Learn how to properly and safely install your car seat
  • How to properly restrain newborns in car seats
  • How to deal with choking
  • Babyproofing: how to make your home safer for your baby
  • Learn the most common cause of injuries and how they can be prevented
  • Where to purchase home safety products

Cost of class is $175 (CAD) (per couple). 
*A couple is defined as a pregnant person and one support person which could be a spouse, partner, friend or family member.

The BBH class runs two full days on the weekend from 9-4pm.

Refund Policy: When cancelling a prenatal class after it has been booked there is a $25 (CAD) administration fee. If the cancellation occurs less than 14 days before the class there is a 50% cancellation fee. If it is less than 7 days there is no refund.  Request for date changes within 7 days of class will reflect a $75 fee.  Please keep this in mind when booking classes and plan to be finished your session by 35 weeks.

People who took our online class during COVID-19 had this to say:

Given the continued need to physically distance and wear masks, OCEA will continue to offer all classes online throughout 2021.
We dearly want to support the health of our expectant families.

Due to covid was online. Was actually more comfortable being home and not having to commute

Bringing Baby Home – with Erin Shaheen April 4, 2020

The suggestions for community resources were fantastic. It definitely helps to have a starting point to know what to look for and what questions to ask.

Comfort of my own home :)

Pre Natal One Day – with Brandie Lekovic March 22, 2020

Erin was really wonderful and had so much information that was easy to follow and was non-judgemental with any questions you had. She did really well with teaching the class online given the current situation.

Bringing Baby Home – with Erin Shaheen March 28, 2020

This class strikes a great balance between super practical guidance and insights on day-to-day life with a new baby, and also up to date, thoroughly referenced, scientifically backed health information and parenting discourse.

Great class despite changed format

Pre Natal – with Julia Wykes March 21, 2020

I liked the structure, and being muted at home meant my partner and I could talk about the information as we were learning it.

Pre Natal – with Lilly Bianchi June 6, 2020

What a wonderful human!! She was so nice and extremely informative :)

Pre Natal – with Julia Wykes Jan. 23, 2021

Very very pleased. I'm difficult to impress, do a lot of research on my own and have very high (some would suggest too high) of expectations with very low tolerance to incompetence....i give Julia a 10/10 :D

Pre Natal – with Julia Wykes May 28, 2020

The virtual class provided by OCEA was very informative and a great way to prepare for labour as well as childbirth. Especially during a global pandemic/lockdown/stay-at-home order this was more than beneficial for mommy and daddy-to-be! We are extremely grateful for this opportunity and feel much more confident bringing our little bundle of joy into this world!

Pre Natal – with Julia Wykes Jan. 23, 2021

We had a wonderful experience during our online class session. Misty is incredibly knowledgeable and the curriculum is easy to understand for first time parents. It helps to learn beyond medical knowledge presented in a textbook. We left the training feeling much more at ease about the birthing process and have many resources to refer back to if needed. Thank you! Crystal and Serge

Pre Natal One Day – with Misty Pratt July 11, 2020

How easy it was to use Zoom. That this was offered as an alternative rather than just cancelling outright. That we didn't have to get up earlier and travel anywhere :)
