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.

OCEA's classes are fantastic! I have taken a handful and learned a bunch from each one. The facilitators are stellar, every class is worthwhile

Thank you Lilly for an awesome prenatal class! We feel much better informed and ready for the birth experience. The information presented was evidence based and despite the transition to online, the class had a welcoming and safe atmosphere.

Misty was phenomenal as a Facilitator, she was unbiased in her approach and research-based which was great. She was empathetic, I felt she spoke equally to moms-to-be and partners and didn't make it all about the moms which was a relief. She answered every question the participants had, she was knowledgeable beyond my expectations!

Pre Natal – with Misty Pratt June 20, 2020

I would highly recommend this course. It is probably the best investment we have made in preparing for our first child. Lots of useful information presented in an easy-to-digest way, without opinion, bias, or "horror stories". I feel so much more prepared for labour, birth & the early days of parenthood.

Lilly is excellent! Would definitely take a course with her again. She is not only very knowledgeable but friendly as well. We really enjoyed the class!

We would highly recommend the OCEA's Bringing Home Baby class to any expecting parents. Our instructor was extremely knowledgeable and was very generous with sharing her time and vast experience. This was incredibly useful in helping us navigate the overwhelming amount of information available and left us with a great overview of the most important points of caring for a new baby as well as a long list of quality resources for more detailed information when we need it. Thank you so much Erin!

Bringing Baby Home – with Erin Shaheen April 25, 2020

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.

Pre Natal – with Lilly Bianchi May 9, 2020

Erin was absolutely amazing! The way she teaches is so engaging and funny and the two full days spent together over Zoom flew by. She was extremely knowledgeable and helpful and her approach was very open, kind, and non-judgmental.

Bringing Baby Home – with Erin Shaheen May 16, 2020

We liked when studies, research, etc. were referenced when presenting information. There is so much information out there that it's nice to know when information has been validated by research.

Bringing Baby Home – with Brandie Lekovic April 18, 2020

Again, the very frank and honest explanations of what to expect are extremely valuable. These are things that nobody ever tells you and are usually very difficult to talk about.

Pre Natal – with Julia Wykes May 19, 2020

Julia was an amazing educator and I would highly recommend her and this class to new parents.

Pre Natal – with Julia Wykes May 19, 2020

Lilly is an amazing educator! I was so anxious before taking this course but looked forward to each class as I learned so much and it answered questions I didn't even know I had. Lilly is so knowledgeable and kind and unbiased and has a nice sense of humour too! It was a pleasure to learn from her each week. Thanks Lilly!
