Prenatal Classes Available

We offer midwife led prenatal classes on weeknights at the Toronto Birth Center. Our spots in these classes are offered primarily to our clients giving birth for the first time.  When space allows we open them up to others as well, either as a refresher course or to non-clients of MCT.
