Our Classes

We are proud to offer

CPR

Does the idea of Baby Led Weaning, leave you feeling fearful of choking? Join us for a session that addresses the gag reflex, normal behaviours when introducing solids and more! 

  • Home safety and injury prevention for babies and children
  • Definition of CPR
  • Performing CPR on children and infants CPR one-rescuer
  • Clearing airway obstructions in children and infants (choking)
  • Barrier Devices
  • CPR and the Heimlich on adults
  • Recognition of cardiac arrest and respiratory arrest

    Cost of CPR is $40. per person (CAD).

    Due to the nature of the close contact with CPR manikins and the fact that we also work closely with newborns, CPR classes during Covid-19 will be offered online.   

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.

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.

Erin's enthusiasm for babies, parenting, and supporting new parents really made the class shine.

Bringing Baby Home – with Erin Shaheen

Julia was awesome! Would have loved to do it face to face, but completely understood due to the current climate. It worked well online and was very information.

Pre Natal – with Julia Wykes

We very much enjoyed the online OCEA pre-natal course and are glad we took it. We appreciated that our instructor presented unbiased information on the birth process that was specific to Ottawa hospitals. Even my partner who already has experience with childbirth and babies learned a few new things! Would recommend to other expecting parents.

Pre Natal – with Misty Pratt

I feel empowered for the birth, and my husband feels like he understands everything better. The workshop really demystified the process and presented clear information and useful tips. We are so happy that we decided to attend.

Pre Natal – with Brandie Lekovic

Thanks for being willing to add in information about how to deal with our fur babies when we bring the baby home!

Pre Natal – with Lilly Bianchi

We liked being able to take the class from the comfort of our own home, yet in an interactive way.

Pre Natal – with Lilly Bianchi

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

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

Erin was absolutely amazing, very knowledgeable and kept the class interactive even in the online platform. Very helpful at answering questions and gave a lot of great tips.

Bringing Baby Home – with Erin Shaheen

Was great to be in the comfort of your home. At 33 weeks much more convenient to be on your couch, have your own pillow and make yourself comfortable.

Pre Natal – with Julia Wykes

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

Bringing Baby Home – with Erin Shaheen

My partner and I took the Bringing Baby Home course through the Ottawa CEA, taught by Erin Shaheen. Erin is very knowledge and took the time to answer any all questions the class had. All the topics were thoroughly presented and never felt rushed. She even provided lots of links, resources as well as information on local support services. We took this course about three months before the baby's due date, and we are so thankful that we did. After taking this course, we felt more confident about our decision making regarding feeding, sleeping, diapering and what items to purchase We look forward to taking more classes with Ottawa CEA!
