On hiatus: Due to other committments, Mother Nurture is currently not offering classes or other services, but we thank you for your interest.

Our mission: To nurture parents during the childbearing year by encouraging them to listen to their inner birth wisdom, by facilitating a safe process of self-discovery, and by sharing with them the information and tools they need to experience an empowering birth.

Please let us know what you think about our services and our web site. The more we know about your needs, the better we can help meet them.

About us will tell you who the people are behind Mother Nurture, how Mother Nurture came into being and what our plans for the future are.

Our philosophy explains what we believe childbirth education should be and how we view the experience of childbirth.

Our childbirth classes are holistic and creative. We not only pass on obstetrical information about labour and birth but we look at the whole person. By following a multisensory approach, the parents learn much more about themselves and therefore are better able to have a better experience in birth. There is also a seminar about dental care for pregnant women provided by MorningStar Dental .

We offer free monthly seminars called Pregnant Pauses. We have 4 topics that deal with the emotional demands and changes that pregnancy and parenting bring. We also look at the different types of care given to pregnant women and their partners (midwifery and obstetrical).

We believe that all parents need to know how to perform CPR and effectively help someone who is choking. This is why we offer Infant/Child CPR classes.

Birth counselling is available to women who have had a negative experience with their childbirth or who are overly anxious about labour.

Hypnotherapy has been used as an effective pain reducing tool for hundreds of years. Now we are starting to use it for childbirth and we are having great success. We offer Hypnosis for Childbirth classes.

We lead the monthly Attachment Parenting meetings in York Region, Ontario.

We have a book list of books that we recommend.

Contact us if you would like to speak to an actual person, register for a class or e-mail us for more information.

Here are some links to sites that Mother Nurture wholeheartedly supports. There are sites for pregnancy and labour, parenting and breastfeeding.

Many blessings,
Joanne Mathon
