The Haldimand-Norfolk Health Unit is happy to offer our community a combination of online and in-person prenatal classes.
You can take the free online classes conveniently from home and choose to combine them with our three in-person classes. There is a fee for the in-person prenatal classes. The prenatal program is 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.
Online Prenatal Class (You will have access to this program for 365 days)
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 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 at the Early On Centre in Simcoe. To register for the in-person classes please call: Simcoe: 519-426-6170 or Caledonia: 905-318-6623
The prenatal classes are offered by the Haldimand-Norfolk Health Unit in partnership with the Early ON Child & Family Centres.
