At PUSH we believe that pregnancy may just be one of the most exciting and special times of your life. Along with the overwhelming emotions, the changes to your body and the growing baby inside you, comes a lot of decision making, routine testing and build up as you prepare for birth. 

 

Education is an important part of supporting a healthy pregnancy. From what to expect as each milestone approaches, to managing symptoms, understanding complications, and how to best prepare for birth, we have got you covered.  We are here to provide you with all of the realities and evidence-based information to help you feel informed and confident on your pregnancy journey.

Are you ready for the most comprehensive and personalized prenatal course provided by healthcare professionals? 

Pregnancy Dietitian

The PUSH Prenatal Program      is a comprehensive course designed to revolutionize what prenatal education looks like, the subjects it covers, and how it should make you as an expectant or new parent feel – empowered and prepared, with no topic uncovered.

 

Our unique approach combines information-packed videos you can watch (and re-watch) on your own time, a downloadable resource pack with extra tools and handouts, and 6 one-on-one check-ins with a dedicated perinatal nurse (Ontario residents only).

The Phased Videos cover your first, second, third trimester, labour and delivery, the first 6 weeks with your baby, and newborn & infant care. It includes everything from the basics, to topics that women are dying to know, and that aren’t talked about enough; all while preparing you for a whole bunch of what ifs.

 

The Check-Ins are your opportunity to follow-up with a dedicated PUSH Prenatal Nurse 6 times throughout your journey. You can discuss individualized pregnancy progress, ask questions specific to your needs, practice skills with your partner and be assured that there is always someone to turn to as a first point of contact with any inquiry that arises during your pregnancy and as you embark into parenthood.
