Do I Really Need to Take Prenatal Classes?

Welcoming a new baby is an exciting journey, but it can also be filled with uncertainties. Many expectant parents wonder, “Do I really need to take prenatal classes?” YES, but it needs to be the right ones! Prenatal education offers invaluable knowledge and skills that prepare you for childbirth and the postpartum period.

Why Prenatal Education Matters

Being educated about the birthing process helps you make informed decisions, reduces anxiety, and empowers you to advocate for your preferences during labor. Prenatal classes cover a wide range of topics, from labor stages and pain management techniques to newborn care and breastfeeding.

How Push Markham’s Services Stand Out

At Push Markham, we provide a comprehensive and holistic approach to prenatal education. Our offerings include:

1. Prenatal Yoga
Our yoga and Pilates classes are tailored to strengthen your body, improve flexibility, and reduce pregnancy-related discomforts. These classes also teach breathing techniques and mindfulness practices that are beneficial during labor.

2. Pelvic Health Physiotherapy
Understanding and preparing your pelvic floor is crucial for childbirth and postpartum recovery. Our expert physiotherapists guide you through exercises and techniques to strengthen this important area.

3. C.A.L.M. Support System
Our unique C.A.L.M. support system includes Chiropractic care, Acupuncture, Lactation consulting, and Massage therapy. These services address physical discomfort, promote relaxation, and support breastfeeding, ensuring you have a well-rounded support network.

4. Partner Birth Preparation Workshops
These workshops are designed to involve your partner in the birthing process. Learn hands-on techniques on how to have a smooth labour and teach your partner how to support you through birth and postpartum.

5. Comprehensive Birth Prep Program
Our Birth Prep Program is an all-inclusive package that covers everything you need to know about the third trimester, labor, and postpartum. It includes practical coping strategies, labor and delivery insights, and hands-on practice through partner workshops.

Benefits of Prenatal Classes

Informed Decision Making
Knowledge is power. Understanding your options during labor and delivery helps you make informed decisions that align with your birth plan.

Reduced Anxiety
Being well-prepared can significantly reduce the anxiety associated with childbirth. Knowing what to expect and having practical strategies to manage labor can make a big difference.

Enhanced Support Network
Prenatal classes often create a community of expectant parents, providing you with a support network to share experiences and advice.


Investing time in prenatal classes is one of the best ways to have a more positive birthing experience. At Push Markham, our comprehensive and holistic approach to prenatal education prepares you physically, emotionally, and mentally for the journey ahead. By taking advantage of our unique services, you equip yourself with the knowledge and confidence needed for a smooth transition into parenthood.
