Black Friday Sale!

This year I just happen to be launching FIVE dates for new workshops on Black Friday, I guess that means that I need to have an amazing sale, doesn't it?

A little background on me: My name is Sherry Trowsse and I have been an active doula in Ottawa for almost 5 years now. I attend births at hospitals, birth centres and in homes in the National Capital Region. That means that the information taught in the workshops is not only up to date on what current research is saying, it is also adapted to what options are available in our area.

 The 5 workshops are: (class descriptions can be found below or by clicking the links)

Oh Baby, You're Pregnant!

Comfort Measures for Labour

Options: Creating a Birth Plan!

It's go time, or is it?

 You’ve Had a Baby, What’s Next?

All these classes can be taken from the moment you know you are expecting, right until 40+ weeks. You will leave the workshop with information sheets to look back on at when you need a refresher and will also be invited to join a private Facebook group just for attendees because I know that most questions come up after the class is finished and you have had time to reflect on the topics covered. You will also be able to stay connected with others who are going through the same things as you.
All classes are only $49 or all 5 for $225 but until Monday at 11:59 PM EST. All classes are 25% off with discount code BF2018.
You can register for the workshop of your choice by clicking on the links above. If you would prefer to pay by E-Mail Money Transfer simply send me message and we will set that up.

Oh Baby, You're Pregnant!
Are you looking for a childbirth class that will cover all the basics and help you know what to expect now that you're expecting? Join us on January 21st for a 2 hour class covering the basics of pregnancy and birth.

Comfort Measures for Labour
This is a 2 hour HANDS ON workshop. We will practice comfort measures, go over pharmaceutical and non-pharmaceutical pain relief options. As well as help your birthing partner feel comfortable knowing how to support you in labour.

Options: Creating a Birth Plan
We will go over all the details of creating a birth plan to help you make informed choices throughout your labour. Discover what options are your top priorities and learn how that can effect the other choices you need to make through your labour. The most important part of writing your birth plan is knowing all your options! With the comprehensive Ottawa Doula Services birth plan template, we will go through the options, explain pros & cons, answer your questions and help you write your plan A and your plan B.

It's go time, or is it?
Is it GO time? In this 2 hour workshop we will cover what to include in your hospital bag, preterm labour, the signs of labour, when to go to your birth location, living life in early labour and much more!

You've Had a Baby, What's Next?
As a doula and prenatal educator, I have witnessed many parents prepare for the birth but not for all the new experienced that come with caring for their new bundle of joy. This course was created to fill in the gap! A practical and informative 2 hour class helping you feel ready for life with a new baby. We will talk about your postpartum recovery as well as cloth and disposable diapers, feeding your baby, swaddling, bathing and so much more!
I strongly feel that you are the expert in your baby and I want to help you feel prepared and confidant in your life with your new child!
