Prenatal & Postnatal Classes and Workshops
Update: Please Read
MOST OF OUR CLASSES AND WORKSHOPS ARE HELD ONLINE, BUT WE ARE HAPPY TO ANNOUNCE THE RETURN OF SOME IN PERSON CLASSES AT OUR TORONTO AND YORK REGION LOCATIONS.
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.
West End Mamas is the village you’ve been looking for.

Wow!Are you considering cloth diapers for your baby because its seem like the right choice but aren’t sure where to start? Is it hard? Is it messy? Is it uncomfortable for baby? What about wipes and diaper covers?
Join us at this workshop where these questions and more will be addressed by birth doula Mira Kevic as she shares her knowledge and her own experience of using cloth diapers. From costs to health concerns, she will compare disposable diapers to cloth diapers, and discuss buying your own cloth diapers versus using a service that launders and brings you diapers.
