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
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.
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 until the end of 2020.
We dearly want to support the health of our expectant families.
Julia was an amazing educator and I would highly recommend her and this class to new parents.
She was fantastic ! Made the class fun to attend !
We liked being able to following the course from our home. We also appreciated how flexible and understanding Erin was throughout.
Before Covid-19, we both had very busy schedules and it was easier for us to sign up for one single day. We’ve also been reading a lot of books in preparation so we felt that a one day session would be ok. It definitely exceeding our expectations. I think my partner is much more ready for when I’m in labour as am I!
She was very informative and very kind. Thank you again for starting a chat at the end of the class about how all of us were doing and suggesting that we check in again in a week.
Lilly was great at fostering a community environment through the screen! She was always available for questions and encouraged group atmosphere in an unprecedented new learning environment!
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.
We really appreciated the very frank, honest, non-judgemental explanations. It has helped us to separate the facts from the opinions.
Julia was great! She kept things light, down-to-earth, and didn't sugar coat things. We all tend to have ideas about what childbirth is like based on tv, movies and old-wives tales, but she was great at dispelling anything that may have mislead us in the past. Her knowledge and experience in the area of childbirth was incredibly helpful.
Erin is amazing at her job, she made the class easy to listen and follow. Her energy brought the class to life, as it was filled with tons of information. It says a lot that it held my husbands full attention throughout ! Great class , great instructor!
During such a difficult time to be pregnant (I never thought my pregnancy would be during a pandemic!) it was really nice to come together with other couples in the same boat. Though it wasn't as social as an in class opportunity likely would have been, the sense of community is such a nice feeling.
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
