Prenatal & Postnatal Classes and Workshops

MOST OF OUR CLASSES AND WORKSHOPS ARE HELD ONLINE.

If a class is NOT online it will be CLEARLY marked as such.

Our online classes are held virtually, but are live-taught (never pre-recorded!) and interactive, making them as close to the in-person experience as possible.  

At West End Mamas in Toronto and Newmarket, we understand that time is precious. Our clients are looking for personalized, high-quality classes on all aspects of motherhood: from prenatal education, to fitness and yoga; from breastfeeding, to any number of mom and baby classes and parenting workshops. Our classes have been carefully curated to respond to the needs of our clients. Class sizes are small, reasonably-priced, and all of our classes and workshops are taught by highly trained instructors.

Managing Toddler Bedtime Resistance

Wed Mar 9, 2022 8:00pm - 9:00pm

Mom and Baby, Postnatal

Oh, the joys of the toddler bedtime tango. Gone are the days when you could read a story, tuck your little in, give him a kiss and leave the room. Now he seems to have turned into the master strategist, trying to think of anything and everything to avoid going to sleep. I need some water. I want a snack. I have to pee. One more story. I need the light on. I need the light off. You may notice that your previously strict 7pm bedtime has drifted to 8pm, 9pm, even 10pm!

In this workshop, we will be outlining for you:

  • how sleep is physiologically regulated at this stage of development, and how to ensure your daily rhythms are meeting your child’s sleep needs,
  • how to provide your child with agency in their pre-sleep routine,
  • evidence-based positive reinforcement strategies to help your child go to sleep with confidence and ease
  • how to be clear and consistent in your messaging

We will help you develop a message that clearly signals the transition to sleep for your child and continues to promote positive associations with sleep time so it remains a secure and enjoyable part of the day.

Newborn Sleep Foundations: Navigating the World of Baby Sleep

Thu Mar 24, 2022 7:00pm - 8:00pm

Mom and Baby, Postnatal, Prenatal

As new parents, it is commonly treated as a rite of passage that we will be foregoing at least some sleep while we adjust to life with a little. This is a given. But no matter how much you prepare mentally for this stage, it can come as quite a shock when it actually hits.

In this workshopI will be outlining for you:

  • why sleep is so critical for your newborn and how it is internally regulated,
  • how you can set up a sleep-promoting environment for your baby based on what physiological cues your baby’s brain and body are searching for,
  • where to focus your undoubtedly limited energy during these early months
  • how YOU can get your best post-natal sleep

I will help you develop a deep appreciation of your newborn’s internal landscape when it comes to sleep and how you can use this understanding to lay a solid sleep foundation for your entire household.

Surviving Sleep Regressions

Fri Feb 18, 2022 1:00pm - 2:00pm

Mom and Baby, Online, Postnatal

We think it’s safe to say that every parent becomes increasingly wary of those dreaded sleep regressions. Just when you thought you had a handle on this sleep business – your baby has started to string together some longer bouts of sleep, there’s more of a rhythm emerging in your day, there’s less overall resistance, and you are getting just a few more juicy hours of sleep for yourself – BAM! the all night wakings, struggles to initiate sleep, and complete lack of schedule coming stampeding back into your life.

In this workshop, we will be outlining for you:

  • the key developments that almost ALWAYS wreak havoc on your baby’s sleep (also known as the 4-, 8- and 15-month sleep regressions),
  • age-appropriate daily rhythms to set you and baby up for success in sleep,
  • strategies for responding to sleep resistance proactively instead of reactively,
  • how to be clear and consistent in your messaging

These stages are hard, no doubt about it. But our intention in this workshop is to reframe these sleep regressions through a deeper understanding of why they are happening in the first place so that you feel empowered and informed to meet your baby where they are at.
