Our Classes

We are proud to offer

Infant sleep class

Are you an exhausted parent that has tried everything and cannot get your baby to sleep? Do you want to find a solution that is not crying it out?

We will be creating a space for parents to follow their instincts when it comes to their new baby, which will allow them to set the stage for optimal brain development. We want to spread the word that babies wake up through the night, and for good reason. We want to share the other side of the sleep story!   We will address identifying individual and family needs, creating support systems and providing a safe place for parents to share stories that support evidence-based sleep patterns.  Bring your baby, have some tea and create a sense of community 

Babies are welcome and encouraged to attend class.  The class will take place after the Infant Massage class. 

Cost of classes is $50.  (CAD) (per couple) and includes telephone and email contact with your instructor free parking and air-conditioned rooms. 

Toddler Sleep Class

Are you getting ready to return to work, move your toddler out of the crib or drop some naps? 

Navigating the newness and bringing in some predictability to wind down and bedtime routines can help make the transitions smoother. Come join us for 2 hours of brainstorming toddler bedtimes and individual Q & A after class.

Strategies will focus on attachment theory, the need for connection and gently supporting toddlers and young children to sleep, particularly during all of the additional changes that Covid-19 is bringing to the family dynamics.  Particular attention will be given to teamwork strategies when two parents are involved and available for bedtime rhythms.
 
Cost of class is per family and a small workbook will be given in class for developing family strategies. 
 

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.

Brandie was amazing, very knowledgeable, answered all our questions. Very engaging instructor and would recommend her to anyone taking the course.

Amazing class for new parents to be. Very informative and we both feel more prepared for the birth of our baby

Julia was wonderful. Her voice is both lively and soothing to listen to. She’s also really hilarious. I loved the added bits of humour. She gave many opportunities to ask questions throughout the course. If she isn’t sure about something, she accesses her own resources/network and gets back to you with an answer. As COVID protocols are constantly changing within the healthcare domain (hospitals, birth centres, home births), I thought she was very knowledgeable about the current situation within each place. She was very knowledgeable about the birth process and the postpartum period for the family unit. There were many resources that we could access to facilitate some of the topics within the class that could need more attention either in the prenatal period or postpartum period (I.e infant feeding) which was great!

It was nice to be at home and be able to adjust our computer, seating, etc. at our leisure.

Our educator Erin was an expert and was very clear in her method of teaching. All my questions were answered and the class interaction was very good. I would take another course with OCEA.

Bringing Baby Home – with Erin Shaheen March 28, 2020

The virtual prenatal class my husband and I took through the OCEA was an excellent experience! Useful and insightful information was presented in a thoughtful and organised fashion and we were also given additional resources upon completion of the course. There was time to ask questions over the duration of the course and the instructor was incredibly knowledgeable and able to offer examples of the situations she was discussing. I would highly recommend this course to any first time parents.

Julia's manner and the information she provided was so reassuring. We feel prepared for the birth and so excited to meet our baby girl. It was a delight to be enrolled in her class.

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

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

Easy going, could speak up and ask questions without feeling judged.

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

Great class, I signed up mostly for my husband to get him ready, I was so nervous that he would not know what to do but now I feel more confident. We are a first time parents.
