Empowering You to Make Informed Decisions About Your Baby and The Birth Experience

The Birth Experience

Giving birth is a powerful, life changing experience for women and their loved ones. Whether it is vaginally or via C-section, birth is a rite of passage into motherhood. I believe it is vital to create a comforting birth space whether you are in your own home or at the hospital. The use of music, aromatherapy and surrounding yourself with support of loved ones are just some of the ways in which you can achieve this.

Through personal experience I know it is important to be well educated about the process of giving birth in order to make informed decisions along the way.

Comprehensive Prenatal Courses

Belly to Baby’s first Prenatal Class was in July of 2004 in beautiful Vancouver, BC.  I was inspired to write my own curriculum based on a need I saw in patients coming into the hospital where I worked at that time.  Throughout my 11 year career as a Labour and Delivery RN at Canada’s busiest maternity Hospital (BC Women’s) I attended over 600 births.  I am passionate about birth, quality education and healthcare.  Giving birth to my first child in 2003 was truly the source of my inspiration in providing quality childbirth to expectant couples.  Belly to Baby offers comprehensive “Prenatal In A Day” courses and “Private” prenatal education sessions that will empower and equip you and your birth partner with knowledge and confidence for your impending birth. It is my belief that preparation skills are key tools that enable you to have a positive birth experience.

    Hello Sarah, my name is Rajvinder Kaur. Over three years ago my husband Santbir and I did our prenatal classes with you. Your mentor, Heather Martin, was with us for the weekend, observing you. I’m not sure if you would remember me as it has been some years since then and also, I’m sure you’ve had many people in and out with your classes. I just wanted to drop you a line, say hello and once again, all these years later tell you how thankful I am for those classes. I was 23 when I had my son. I was so scared and did not know what to expect; not from the labour and delivery and especially not from being a mother. My son is 3 years old now and I have a daughter also who will be turning 1 at the end of February. My second pregnancy was much easier, as I’m sure is the case for most women. However, I wanted to tell you how much your classes helped me in giving me the confidence to birth my child and also help ease some of my nervous tension surrounding the whole situation. What you do for couples who are about to become parents is a beautiful and blessed thing. I just wanted to thank you for that.
