Our Classes

The Parent Collective offers a revamped approach to prenatal and parenting education which is designed to provide unbiased information, foster open discussion and establish friendships among expectant parents who live local to one another and are due at the same time. Our hope is that participants taking our classes will cultivate a social network through weekly participation, forge a robust prenatal/parental support system and of course, gather playmates for the little ones on the way.

Online Prenatal Series  

Our Prenatal Class Series is designed for couples (birth partners are welcome) to both learn and socialize, over the course of a four-week period. Each session is 2 hours with ample time for discussion and relationship building. Our classes are best taken in the third trimester, ideally completing before 36 weeks of pregnancy.

Session 1: What to expect in labor and delivery
Session 2: Relaxation techniques to help you through the early stages of labor, c-sections, and options for pain management
Session 3: Breastfeeding and bottle feeding information and advice, including latching on, pumping, milk storage, getting on a feeding schedule, and how to manage problems that may arise
