private prenatal classes
Kama shares her unique knowledge, perspectives, and experiences as a midwife, doula, and parent, and she also tells it like it is. She’ll keep you laughing as you learn about everything from when you’re really in labour to what colour your newborn baby’s poop should be.
Private sessions are held in the comfort of your own home. We can tailor any of the group session curriculum to your needs so you get more of what you want to focus on and less of what you don’t.
You can choose the entire curriculum listed below as one package for $489 (the first option in the list) and we will discuss how to layout the schedule of classes. Or you can choose individual topics for $128 each and last about one hour.

Your body in labour, your baby in labour
Understanding the nuts and bolts of what’s happening inside your body during this incredible process is invaluable on the big day.
You, your body, and your labour and birth: the mind-body connection
The mind-body connection and understanding yourself is the first secret to having a positive experience. This is a fact that athletes trust in all the time! You’d be surprised at the difference nurturing this connection makes.
Preparing for labour and birth
We’ll cover everything from what to pack in your hospital bag (yes, even if you are planning a home birth), how to prepare your living space (yes, even if you are not planning a home birth), what to buy, and when to call your midwife, doctor, and family.
The rundown on the most common and not-so-common clinical interventions, including labour induction, epidurals, and caesarean sections.
Labour coping techniques for you and your partner
Tricks, tips, and techniques for getting through labour for both the labourer and the support person, from what to have on hand, to dealing with loved ones, from breathing to visualization.
The postpartum period
The postpartum period begins in that magical moment you are no longer pregnant. We’ll talk about what happens to everyone in the first 24 hours, the first week, and the first 6 weeks postpartum.
Newborn care 101
Your tiny new little human has arrived. Um, now what? This session covers the need-to-knows for the first few hours, days, and weeks of your newbie’s life, from which baby sounds are normal and which are not, how often to change a diaper, signs of health vs. reasons to react, co-sleeping, how often to feed, and more.
How it works, how to make it work best, how it’s a team effort, and why you should be kind to yourself if it doesn’t come as naturally as breathing. Also, simple tricks to take the guesswork out of positioning and getting a good latch.
