Our Classes

We are proud to offer

Comfort Measures‎

This is not a full prenatal class. This is a hands-on session to practise coping strategies and to help you find practical tips for your labour and birth.

Dress comfortably, bring a birth/pilates ball if you have one, a pillow, and a yoga mat or bath towel for your comfort. We will practice positions on the floor. Inspired by Lamaze, Bonapace, rebozo, yoga, visualization, cranial-sacral therapy, and years of Doula experience.
 
This class was designed as a complement to our prenatal class (group or private). It is also a great refresher for those who have already taken a prenatal course, are having another baby, preparing for a VBAC, and is specifically designed for those wanting strategies to avoid pharmaceutical pain relief.
 
Labour partners are encouraged to help support the birthing person and to expect homework.  
Pregnant people who would like to come on their own are so welcome and invited to work directly with the facilitator / experienced Doula, Brandie Lekovic.
 
 This 3hr class is $85. 

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

Given the continued need to physically distance, the size of our room rentals and the evolving state of our global pandemic, OCEA will continue to offer all classes online throughout 2022.
We dearly want to support the health of expectant families.

This class was great! She was so well prepared and had wonderful images and props and ways of explaining things that made learning about giving birth very accessible.

Pre Natal One Day – with Brandie Lekovic

This course was a great introduction in all things labour. Things are a bit different in Covid-19 times and our instructor made a point of keeping us up to date with what to expect while being very empathetic with the challenges this situation brings to labour and tricks to get through it positively.

This course will help you answer questions you didn't even know you had - both for people who are pregnant and their partners!

Erin is incredible! The classes flew by as she kept us all engaged and excited throughout each part and truly made things fun and less overwhelming. She is up to date on all guidelines and laws and quick to answer any questions that arise!

I liked how much this course included the partners I to the discussions and empowered them to be an integral part of my he birth process.

OCEA has made a huge difference - we are pregnant during the COVID 19 pandemic and these online classes really helped us feel more prepared and gave us a sense of community and support. Highly recommend all of their courses. I don’t know what I would do without them.

Pre Natal – with Brandie Lekovic

We loved Julia, she’s a great instructor, keeps the class entertaining while supplying lots of information to overwhelmed expecting parents. She’s straightforward and fun and the class is very inclusive for dads too, which is greatly appreciated. Thank you Julia!

OCEA's classes are fantastic! I have taken a handful and learned a bunch from each one. The facilitators are stellar, every class is worthwhile

Bringing Baby Home – with Brandie Lekovic

Erin was awesome! She took time to ensure ALL questions were answered, nothing was too much trouble and my husband and I feel much more ready for our daughter to arrive having taken this class! Thank you! Xxx

Bringing Baby Home – with Erin Shaheen

Lilly was amazing, she has so much experience to share and tips to give. She makes the entire session super lively and interesting. Barely using any notes makes the whole thing more interactive. We both highly appreciated her and would definitely recommend.
