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.  

Cost of classes is $60.  (CAD) (per couple)

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, 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 experience was great! We would definitely recommend this session to others.

Lilly is a wonderful educator. She has vast knowledge of the subject along with calm and reassuring demeanor, patience and excellent communication skills. We enjoyed listening and learning from her.

Really enjoyed this class. So informative! I would definitely recommend it to friends who are about to become new parents. Erin was an excellent instructor and did a great job presenting the information. Particularly amazing how quickly this class was adapted from in-class to online and how thorough and easy to follow it was. Our confidence as soon-to-be new parents has increased exponentially since taking this class. Thank you!

It was useful to understand the real benefit of breastfeeding compared to formula, as opposed to all the judgemental information that is out there.

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.

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 :)

Erin was incredibly personable, knowledgable, responsive and a very fun teacher. She was able to keep our attention throughout the day with her lovely jokes, depth of her knowledge and experience and kind and welcoming personality. We learned a lot from the class and truly enjoyed ourselves.

We really enjoyed Erin's class! Her style of teaching was really engaging and a nice departure from presentation-heavy classes. We also loved the interactive parts to try on our own baby wearing items, learning to swaddle, and getting to know the carseat. Great class!

Bringing Baby Home – with Erin Shaheen

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.

Julia was a great teacher! Very knowledgeable and passionate. We learned a lot.

Pre Natal – with Julia Wykes

I've been reading a lot about parenting and have a sister in law who is very passionate about parenting and I have been around to watch her raising three kids so I have been exposed to a lot of the philosophies. I really appreciated the break down of the sleep discourses and looking at the sleep training stuff, as I had a friend who sent me a huge amount of sleep training info that was like an airplane manual it was so complex and I thought it seemed a little intimidating and unnecessary/counterintuitive, so I was glad to hear that it is not the bible of baby sleep approaches.
