Balancing From Birth to Baby

prenatal educators Maggie Hilton & Bronwyn addico

Balancing from Birth to Baby bridges the gaps in the prenatal classes, parenting education and services available in Kitchener-Waterloo and surrounding areas. Our classes are developed and taught by a Registered Labour and Delivery Nurse and a Birthing from Within Childbirth Mentor and Doula. The material we deliver balances current medical practices with holistic alternatives.  We share innovative techniques to build your confidence as you enter birth and parenting, no matter what twists and turns your journey may take.

What Makes Us Different?

We are the only Prenatal Education Company whose material is designed by both a health care professional and a holistic practitioner! We truly believe in sharing the important medical aspects but also the practical and realistic side of birth and parenting. We present factual information in a non-biased way to aid you in making the best decisions for you, your family and your current situation.

Balancing from Birth to Baby present a wide range of prenatal and parenting classes in Kitchener and also occasionally in New Hamburg. A complete list of our offerings and in depth descriptions can be found on our Classes Page.
