- To encourage conversation and information sharing, you must have your camera turned on during the online sessions.
- Images, videos and documents will be shown during the class. To make it easier for you to see them, we recommend attending the class on a device other than a cell phone.
- You will receive a list of learning materials/resources one week before the session. Please take the time to go over the information prior to the meeting so that we may spend the time we need addressing your questions/concerns.
To register, please fill out the form and send it to the appropriate email address:
Information sessions are offered by your delivering center, either Lakeshore General Hospital, Hôpital de LaSalle or St Mary's Hospital Center. These sessions are given by an experienced perinatal nurse who will offer you excellent advice and answer your questions.
