We are excited to announce that Alongside Family Support Services is now offering Childbirth Education for expectant women and their families!!


Having walked alongside more than 200 labouring women over the past 8 years, it became clear to Charissa that there is a need for comprehensive prenatal classes that provide evidence-based education in a unique environment.  Not everyone enjoys a traditional, makeshift classroom setting with dozens of strangers.  That’s why we look forward to serving our clients in a new and exciting capacity!!  As such, we have built our curriculum to include the following essential topics:


1. Physiological Normal Birth

2. Healthy Birth Practices

3. Comfort Measures

4. Medical Options and Practices

5. Postpartum Strategies

6. Discussion of Physical and Emotional Changes


As instructor of Alongside’s Childbirth Education sessions, Charissa will align her training from the Douglas College Perinatal Program to meet the needs and interests of expectant parents in a comfortable atmosphere!!  At this time we are only offering private in-home sessions, where we can tailor the curriculum to your personal needs and goals.


Space is limited, so please contact us today utilizing the form to the left, or call Charissa today!  Special pricing and packages for current and past clients!
