Prenatal Classes

The Haldimand-Norfolk Health Unit is happy to offer our community a combination of online and in-person prenatal classes.  You can take the online classes conveniently from home and choose to combine with our three in-person classes. The prenatal program is free and available for residents of Haldimand and Norfolk counties.

If you are not a resident of these areas, please contact your local health unit for more information about their online prenatal options.

In-person Prenatal Class


Our in-person classes are designed to complement the eClasses and are a great addition to the information that you will be learning.  The classes are facilitated by a Public Health Nurse and will allow you to practice the skills learned in the eClasses, have all your questions answered and to meet other expectant parents in your community.


Topics covered in our in-person classes include:

Comfort measures for labour and birth

Birth experience


Life with a newborn

Coping skills as new parents

These classes are offered every month in Simcoe and in Caledonia at the EarlyOn Centres. To register for the in-person classes please call:  Simcoe:  519-426-6170 or Caledonia: 905-318-6623
