Bluebird private nurse
Bluebird Private Nurse offers services to new and future parents who are searching for clear and unbiased information relating to child birth, maternity and paternity.
Our prenatal courses are offered in small interactive groups and cover a wide range of subjects that will inform and empower our new parents. From breathing exercises used in pain management to simply changing a diaper, our staff will assure you come away well informed.
Courses are offered in French and English by a qualified perinatal service provider who has been helping future parents for the last 25 years.
Courses are based on a 5 week session: course 1 gives a general overview of what we will be learning plus nutrition and the physical discomforts and how to deal with them. Integrated with this general theme, our male partners are encouraged to participate and exchange with others about how becoming a dad will affect their lives.
Learning about attachment and how we form bonds with others is another topic that is covered. Course 2 deals with breathing techniques, massages that can be done before and during labor, favorable positions for sleeping, good circulation and laboring. Our 3rd course covers the birthing process and we discuss if a birthing plan is right for you plus a portion of the protocols that giving birth in a hospital milieu entails.
Our 4th class puts together everything you may need to bring to the hospital plus the economic side of having children. A good portion of this class covers breastfeeding but not exclusively.
The 5th and last class covers immediate postpartum and what to expect. We also cover the legalities of having a baby and security issues. This course answers many of the questions that future parents need to know. Have you ever heard of baby wearing? Reusable or ecological diapering? Skin to skin after birth? Delayed cord clamping? Daycare issues?
Our center offers a place where a wide range of ideas to contemplate before baby arrives can be discussed without the feeling of being judged. Support and clear information separate our center from others. Private is also available. We also support breastfeeding and will try to clarify all the myths and stories that exist and even how long a woman should breastfeed.
We pride ourselves in knowing that the best person to raise a child is his or her parent. Sound a bit strange? Wait for all the good childrearing information you can receive from good willed adults around you!
We can help. Our perinatal service provider is also certified for baby car seat installation. If a helping hand is needed after birth, postnatal visits can be scheduled upon demand.
These visits can include baby health, nutrition issues, or getting back on your feet the right way. Don’t hesitate and give us a call as places fill up fast. Starting a course around your 24th -28th week of pregnancy will aid you to take advantage of, and put into practice, the information offered.
