Prenatal Classes taught by:
Lorraine Merson RN, CCE
As a mother of 2 children (her little boy Evan now 6 years old and her little girl Kristina now 8 years old) and a wife married to a wonderfully supportive husband, Lorraine is a Certified Childbirth Educator and Registered Nurse with most recent previous experience working in Labour & Delivery/Obstetrics at both Milton and Oakville hospitals, among other hospitals in her nursing career.
Her own birth experiences have enabled her to teach her prenatal classes with so much more passion and convicition then ever before, as she truly enjoys helping expecting parents prepare for their big day, and the months of new parenthood that follows.

Lorraine has been offering Professional Prenatal classes in both the hospital and private setting in Halton and Peel Region for over thirteen years. When she first began teaching in the hospital setting, Lorraine envisioned someday having her own prenatal class business that focused on a comfortable learning environment for both the pregnant woman and her partner. In her classes, there is attention paid to the small details such as comfortable seating on couches rather than banquet hall chairs, a more casual interactive setting due to a smaller group of people, complimentary snacks & drinks, and the use of a current and evidence based workbook to help couples learn and review the class material.
Also, there is time allotted for hands on practice of relaxation, breathing and labour positions to help couples feel more comfortable, engaged and excited to be attending Birthing and Babies Prenatal classes. Her goal is to help decrease your anxieties about labour and birth, while helping you feel empowered and aware of the choices available to you. If you want to have fun, laugh, and learn in a casual interactive atmosphere, then Birthing and Babies Prenatal Classes are definitely for you!
