Welcoming a new baby into your life may come with a lot of questions. How will you cope with labour?

When should you go to the hospital? Will you be able to breastfeed your baby?

How do you even take care of a baby after you bring them home?!?

Being pregnant in the midst of a world pandemic adds even more uncertainty, and you might be feeling like you don’t know how to prepare for your upcoming experience. We are here to help. 


Private prenatal education can be the perfect way to get your questions answered on your own schedule and get reassurance and support from someone who “has been there”.


Mother&Sol one-on-one classes are scheduled at your own convenience and taught virtually through Zoom or in-person in the comfort of your own home (*depending on current covid-19 regulations*).

Private classes are taught by Mother&Sol’s owner, Javiera Aviles-Saez, a professional Doula, Perinatal Educator and breastfeeding mother.  She has been teaching prenatal classes since 2019 to local families in Sarnia, Ontario, and has taught virtual classes and supported families virtually during pregnancy, birth and breastfeeding throughout the covid-19 pandemic. 



"In a time, both before and after giving birth, when we were inundated with information that was sometimes conflicting, Javiera was there with evidence-based information and resources to direct us to the information we neededAfter giving birth, the virtual support through video was so convenient with a newborn, especially given the stressful and confusing pandemic time.

She is passionate about self-advocating and she is inclusive of all family situations. Javi did an amazing job of ensuring that we were informed and reassured, her service felt tailor-fit to us and our personal situation"
