Something really cool has been happening in Calgary and around Alberta. The TV series Transformation to Parenthood has been filming around Alberta, talking with parents, midwives, OBs, retailers, doulas, childbirth educators (that's me) and so many more. Its groundbreaking because its a series that supports parents in pregnancy, childbirth and early parenting.

The questions got me thinking...and talking...so here's a video from me to you on what prenatal education is and why you should take a class!


Here's more info on Transformation to Parenthood. I'd suggest following their Facebook page to find air dates!

Pregnancy, birth and early parenting are important and meaningful times in family life. This transformation to parenthood offers many choices about where, how and with whom we birth. It can sometimes be difficult to know which options are best. This season is also profoundly life-altering in terms of how parents see themselves, how they relate to others, and how they view their place on the planet. In this series, we support parents in discovering, exploring and appreciating pregnancy, birth and parenting perspectives while, at the same time, focusing on healthy family living. In each episode, we share the wisdom of parents and subject matter experts to help you to make informed choices that are best for your family. Our aim is to support viewers in transforming into parents and community members who courageously use their voices, respects the kaleidoscope of parenting styles and ultimately trusts themselves.
