Our Classes

We are proud to offer

Grandparents classes & More

The last 30 years have offered families more information than ever before on Infant Mental Health, Skin to Skin and strategies to support attachment,  which has resulted in changes in our day to day parenting techniques.  And of course, Covid-19 has impacted Grandparents, and the ability to visit whether you live in town or out of town.    Expectant parents are planning 'bubbles',  physical distancing, and quarantines during this unusual time.    Leave with strategies to support your children and grandchildren through the following topics and more!   

We will cover newborn sleep recommendations
Car seat information
Babywearing
Infant feeding recommendations
Supporting a new family during Covid-19 
How you can use technology to stay connected to your grandchild

Registration is per couple OR for one grandparent and their friend (ie: Grandma to be and an Auntie ). Leave feeling excited to be able to offer support for your family that reflects all of your family’s values.

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.

Erin was absolutely PHENOMENAL. Her immense knowledge, calm demeanor, and insight was so helpful. So so so glad we had Erin as our teacher!!!

Bringing Baby Home – with Erin Shaheen June 2, 2021

LOVED Erin, her knowledge and experience, her positive non-judgemental attitude, her stories, everything. We truly enjoyed the class and were sad when it ended!

Erin was absolutely phenomenal as a course facilitator and her knowledge of all subjects relating to the course was outstanding! She has a casual approach to many baby topics that would otherwise cause great (unnecessary) stress for parents-to-be. The combined experience of having her own family and working with new parents over the years adds an amazing wisdom that was so refreshing to see. It was too bad the course was online as I'm sure it would've been more engaging in person, overall I give it an A+.

I was looking to be informed about what to expect during labour and birth and this course did not disappoint! My husband and I feel informed, equipped, and more ready to prepare for the big day to come.

Pre Natal – with Lilly Bianchi Jan. 23, 2021

Lilly was an absolute joy! She was very professional, but also included tasteful humour which made the discussions and content very enjoyable. She did a great job of engaging the participants even over Zoom.

Brandie sent us SO many links and provided us with a lot of different reading materials... a dream for someone like me who loves information

Pre Natal – with Brandie Lekovic June 16, 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

She did a great job in making us feel comfortable to ask questions.

Bringing Baby Home – with Erin Shaheen March 28, 2020

Great use of zoom. Thank you.

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

Julia is EXCELLENT! She was very knowledgeable and very funny! She knew how to navigate those awkward and uncomfortable topics with care and grace. If we have a 2nd baby, I would love to have Julia as my midwife :)

Pre Natal – with Julia Wykes May 20, 2021

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