Birth & Baby Prep: Crafting Your Roadmap for Birth and Parenting

Everyone has an opinion on your pregnancy to parenting journey: from how and where you labour, to how you feed and diaper your baby, it’s information and opinion overload. What if you could explore factual, non-biased information in a creative, judgement free environment that encourages you to respect your intuition and ask questions?

This creative approach to prenatal education will prepare you physically, emotionally and informationally, for your birth experience and caring for a newborn. Join Kate Sissons & Ruth Ruttan, Doulas, Childbirth Educators and Movement Experts for this intensive weekend.

Movement and Breath for Birth

Want to feel confident in how you move through your pregnancy and your birth? Our bodies go through an immense journey when growing and birthing a baby. Studies show that physical movement, and conscious breathing, are hugely beneficial and can help make the journey smoother.

Join Kate Sissons & Ruth Ruttan, Doulas, Childbirth Educators and Movement Experts for this creative and well rounded workshop. We’ll learn specific and safe ways to move your body and use your breath (and learn why you want to move that way), to add ease and comfort - and a whole lot of fun, to your pregnancy and birth.

This workshop includes take home tip sheets and a gift bag.

Get More Sleep - Exploring The Art and Science of Infant Sleep

Life with a baby changes our sleep patterns. It's a given - we all want to learn how we can get more zzzs. But how can we achieve this without the tears?

This is not your average sleep workshop.

Join Certified Infant Sleep Educators Aidan Black-Allen and Kate Sissons at The Bosnar Centre for Health, while we explore the science behind infant sleep (why do they wake so much?) and how to support your babies (and maximize your own sleep) through developmental milestones.

Plus, we'll be sharing personalized tips about how you can get more rest and relaxation tonight! 

Pre-send any sleep specific questions (or any questions at all!) to kate@katesissons.com or rosydreamers@gmail.com

We will be running this workshop as a monthly event beginning in the new year. Check back in for future dates and specific topics that we'll be covering.
