ABOUT OUR CLASSES

Our in depth, interactive and respectful classes offer everything you need to feel prepared, excited and safe in your journey to baby. Every woman should be supported in making informed choices about what’s best for her and her family.

ABOUT YOUR INSTRUCTOR

Mischa Corman-François, RN, BScN

image0.jpeg

Accompanying pregnant women through their births has always been my clear calling. With that in mind, I graduated with distinction from McGill University with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing. Since then, I have had experience in a natural focused community hospital, at a clinic doing postpartum follow up, attending deliveries in a rural village in Ghana Africa and doing prenatal follow up with the Cree population of Northern Quebec before settling into my current position in the high risk delivery room at the Royal Victoria Hospital in Montreal. Advocating for better support of physiological labour in the hospital setting is my current devotion, along with being a mother to my son. 

 

Complimenting my nursing experience, I am a trained yoga instructor, a practice I incorporate with women wishing to labour without epidural. I am trained in Neonatal Resuscitation, advanced doula skills and the « Baby Friendly » breastfeeding initiative. This diverse experience has given me a wide range of perspectives surrounding birth. The birth of my own son in 2023 gave me the embodied experience of years of theoretical knowledge. It is truly incredible what our bodies can do. I have attended over 500 deliveries and my passion remains strong as ever! I have taught prenatal classes since 2017 and love empowering women to have the best experience possible during their journey to parenthood.
