Free In-Person and Online Prenatal Classes
If you, a friend or a family member is a parent to be, the Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit now offers free prenatal classes in-person, as well as online for those who prefer to take classes at a time when it’s more convenient for them.
Both in-person and online classes include information on labour and birth, comfort measures, medical procedures, newborns, after the baby comes, breastfeeding and more. In-person prenatal classes offer an opportunity to meet other pregnant people and families, talk about pregnancy, birth, and newborns and get answers to questions and concerns from a public health nurse. These classes occur in in Barrie, Bracebridge, Bradford, Collingwood, Cookstown, Huntsville, Midland and Orillia.
You can register for in-person or online prenatal classes by calling Health Connection at 705-721-7520 or 1-877-721-7520 Monday to Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. You can also register for an online prenatal class at www.smdhu.org/prenatalclass.
