SIMCOE MUSKOKA — The free prenatal classes offered by the Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit (SMDHU) have proven so popular that the health unit is now offering online classes to supplement it’s in-person classes.

“Attendance at our prenatal classes has more than doubled in the last five years, so to manage some of that demand, we’re offering a series of online classes,” said Lori Webel-Edgar, Reproductive Health Manager at the health unit. “The online classes not only contain all of the elements of the in-person classes, they offer availability for parents-to-be who aren’t able to get to our in-person classes or prefer to learn at their own pace and at a more convenient time.”

Included in the classes are information on labour and birth, comfort measures, medical procedures, newborns, after the baby comes, breastfeeding and much more.

In-person prenatal classes give parents-to-be an opportunity to meet other pregnant people and families, talk about pregnancy, birth, and newborns, and get answers to questions from a public health nurse.

Online prenatal classes, which are particularly helpful for pregnant women who can’t attend classes because of transportation or scheduling conflicts, provide an opportunity for parents-to-be to choose the information that interests them, to learn at their own place, and to learn when and where they are most comfortable.

In-person prenatal classes are offered in Barrie, Bracebridge, Bradford, Collingwood, Cookstown, Huntsville, Midland and Orillia. For locations, dates, and times, check the prenatal class schedule at To register for an in-person or online class call Health Connection at 705-721-7520 or 1-877-721-7520 Monday to Friday 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. You can also register for an online prenatal class by going to
