At Birth Matters, we are dedicated to supporting and educating you and your partner as you prepare to greet your little one and in the months that follow.

 

Birth Matters Prenatal Classes are the most trusted & comprehensive series of prenatal & post-partum classes offered in Kamloops.  It is the only Childbirth Education Centre in Kamloops, offering a full classroom and extensive resources learning library. Classes are taught by a facilitator with  21+ years of experience in labour, birth and post-partum.  The classes are for everyone; whether you plan to birth at home or the hospital, with a Physician or a Midwife, with Medications or Without. I have an extensive array of teaching materials for learning, including Posters, DVD's, 3D models & visuals, Group activities, library of related books, and the PlumTree Baby textbook is included for each expecting family.

 

The studio and office are spacious and lovely places to learn alongside other new families. Centrally located in Sahali's Tudor Village Complex within Modern Nest. 

 

Classes are designed so there is plenty of opportunities to address each of your concerns.  I recognize that all expectant mothers and support persons are unique and we welcome all questions and facilitate discussion.  I provide a safe, FUN and supportive learning environment, as well as a social setting to meet and get to know other expectant families in the community.

 

Prenatal classes will include; group discussions, videos, demonstrations, and plenty of time to practice supporting techniques & the PlumTree Baby curriculum booklet.

 

Birth Matters specializes in preparing expecting families for an amazing, educated birth and bonding experience. Through the 5 weeks of comprehensive group classes, 2 Intensive childbirth preparation classes, or the Prenatal in a Day we are able to help prepare all birthing families throughout the Kamloops area.

We Believe:

  1. You & your support person CAN have an amazing birth and bonding experience!

  2. You will work together and grow closer & more ready through our childbirth education series &  the upcoming birth day.

  3. Learning to relax both mentally, emotionally and physically is an important skill needed for a satisfying birth experience. 

  4. Preparation, knowledge, and support are an integral part of having a memorable & empowered birth experience.

  5. Your support team matters! Through the weeks of learning, we hope to help your support person feel ready & prepared to be there for you.

  6. Our learning environment is fun and social. We strive to help you and your support person build connections not just with each other but with other new expecting families as well.

 

Thank you for joining me in this most incredible journey as you prepare to give birth to your baby. I am honoured to be part of your birth stories.
