About Us

Catherine

ReadyBaby is the 'baby' that grew out of helping hundreds of parents just like you navigate pregnancy, birth, and those first days with your little one. My name is Catherine, and I am an experienced Labour & Delivery. I love to give expecting parents the gift of confidence and clarity!

All classes are taught by registered L&D nurses who share my passion and professional skill for all things birth and baby. The classes are developed and geared specifically to birthing practices in Calgary, and will help you know just what to expect when you deliver and begin your parenting journey. We have a unique perspective as practicing L&D nurses and our passion is to provide evidence-based information and hands-on experiences to help you make the very best choices for yourself and your baby.

Together we will learn about your pregnant and labouring body, practice relaxation and coping skills, watch birth stories, cover options for pain control, learn baby care and calming, gain knowledge in breastfeeding positions and techniques, and discover hundreds of tips and tricks that will improve your labour and delivery experience. 

We know that every family is unique, every parent has different questions and concerns, and every baby arrives with a one-of-a-kind birth story. The physician team at South Health Campus trusts ReadyBaby to guide expecting parents towards a strong, positive start.

No one should have to face the day they become a parent with anxiety and overwhelm. Join us for action-packed classes that will grow your excitement and knowledge for what's ahead!

 

Erin

My name is Erin and I’m honoured to help you prepare for your little one’s arrival. I am a Registered Nurse working at South Health Campus specializing in labour, delivery, and post partum. With a background in teaching and coaching prior to nursing, I look forward to walking alongside you with support and open mindedness as you prepare for this wondrous, life changing event.

Outside of the hospital, I spend my time with my husband, three children, dog, cats and chickens! We love being out in the fresh air together, biking, skiing, hiking, and camping. I also enjoy seeking solace in the garden, on the trails, or on the yoga mat.

 As you journey through pregnancy and childbirth you are born into parenthood. I believe there are many “uncontrollables” throughout this beautifully unique process, but what we can control is how we prepare for this event so we are not surprised. My wish for you is that your ReadyBaby experience will help you to feel calm and informed so you can surrender to the process with confidence, trust and grace.
