Montreal Prenatal Classes Taught By Certified Birth Doulas.
Want to have a positive birth experience, but don’t know what to expect?
Hoping you can find a way to involve your partner in your birth, even if they already seem more freaked out by this process than you? Crying because wine is officially off the menu? (We feel your pain.)
The truth is: There’s only so much that “what to expect when you’re expecting” guides can prepare you for.
You can have the best plan in place and the best team in place, but when it comes down to it…your baby may have ideas of its own. And that’s okay!
Participating in our Birth and Parent with Confidence classes will help you take ownership of the birthing experience and educate you on what to expect during your birth and up to six weeks after baby is born, so you can bring more knowledge and confidence into this process, regardless of how or where you choose to give birth.
Rock the Cradle Montreal prenatal classes offer:
EDUCATORS WHO ARE THE REAL DEAL
We’ve got 600+ births informing our methods. All of our educators are Certified Birth Doulas AND moms, so we’ve got more experience than you can shake a baby rattle at.
INTERACTIVE & HANDS-ON CLASSES
Leave your boring textbooks at home! We break out the anatomical models and teach you and your partner fun exercises that bring you closer together.
INFORMATIVE & IN-DEPTH LESSONS
We don’t just stick to teaching you hospital and birthing centre protocols, but show you how to make informed decisions during birth, so you feel prepared for anything.
HOLISTIC PAIN COPING TECHNIQUES
Our specialized skills in hypnobirthing, yoga, rebozo, and acupressure can help you cope with the intensity of labour using techniques that work for you.
TIPS FOR THRIVING BEYOND BIRTH
We’ll show you how to thrive in those 6 weeks after you bring baby home with breastfeeding techniques, postpartum healing remedies, and tips for newborn care.
A RESPECTFUL, JUDGMENT-FREE SPACE
No matter where you plan to give birth and whether you want a meds-free birth or not—we’re here to make you feel informed and supported, no question left behind.
You’ll get two days of training to cover topics such as (but not limited to):
- How am I going to do this?
- How labour really goes down and what to expect
- Labour coping techniques that you can use during each stage of labour
- What’s normal, what isn’t, and what to do about it
- How your partner or birth squad can help you through labour and delivery

- You’ve brought baby home, now what?
- How to get that first latch and help baby breastfeed
- Strategies and remedies to get your lady parts back to normal after birth
- Basic newborn care and what to expect in the first 6 weeks
And don’t worry, we’ll always make time to answer your 101 questions like:
- How do I know if I’m in labour for real? Will my water break?
- When do we go to the hospital? And what should we bring?
- What happens if I’m induced?
- Is it safe to eat while I’m in labour?
- What if I poop while I’m pushing?
- When is it too late to get an epidural if I really want one?
- How can I avoid tearing or having a cesarean?
