About Sara Olson,
Offering Expert Prenatal Classes & Postpartum Support
Hello! My name is Sara Olson and I have the privilege as an expert in the field to offer fun, informative, participant-driven in-person prenatal classes to help you feel educated, empowered, and in control of your pregnancy, birth, and transition to parenthood. I offer 3 core prenatal classes broken down into early pregnancy, late pregnancy & birth, and newborns & the postpartum, as well as a 1-day summary prenatal class and a private prenatal class for just you and your partner. I also offer specialty prenatal classes for parents and parents-to-be of multiples (twins, triplets, etc), as well as LGBTQ+ folks. Finally, I offer home visits for education and support in the postpartum period. My goal is to share the information and experience I have so you can become your own expert. I can't wait to meet you and be part of your journey into parenthood!
Sara Olson- My Story
I have always been passionate about pregnancy, birth, babies, and excellent care for women and their families - and this has always driven my work. I started my journey by completing a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Western Ontario, with an Honours Specialisation in Psychology. I focused on clinical (e.g. diagnosis of mental health disorders) and developmental (e.g. optimising a child's development) psychology, which has been invaluable in my work with new mothers and families in the postpartum period. I then completed my Bachelor of Health Sciences in Midwifery at McMaster University. With this degree, I have had the privilege to work with pregnant people and their families, and have done so for the past 8 years.
I feel passionate about continuing my work with young
families. In my work as a Midwife I loved sharing
information with families as I believed it to be an
empowering experience for them. I feel so lucky to be
continuing with this through my prenatal classes, and to
continue being a part of new families' journeys into
parenthood through the prenatal and postnatal classes
and the postpartum support I offer!
