Proudly Supporting Families in York Region with Breastfeeding, Prenatal Classes and CPR Workshops 
Pregnancy and preparing for a new baby are very exciting times. There are moments filled with joy, learning and anticipation. As wonderful as these moments are, they can also leave many parents (and grandparents) feeling overwhelmed by the prospect of welcoming, nourishing and
caring for a new family member. With over 45 years of combined experience in lactation support, prenatal education and infant CPR, the Babies First team will gladly share our knowledge to support you and your growing family.  

In-home Breastfeeding Support for You and Your Family
Even though nursing is considered natural, breastfeeding can take time to learn, especially for a new Mom and baby. Babies First features three registered nurses (RN) International Board Certified Lactation Consultants (IBCLC) ready to provide in-person, telephone and online support.
Katie, Heather, Christin and Lan service families across York Region and South Simcoe (Aurora, Bolton, Bradford, Cookstown, East Gwillimbury, Georgina, King City, Kleinburg, Markham, Maple, Mount Albert,
Newmarket, Nobleton, Richmond Hill, Schomberg, Sharon, Tottenham, Vaughan and Woodbridge). It is an honour to have helped hundreds of families feed their babies with confidence and comfort.  We support you to reach your goals! 

Prenatal Education – We Offer Breastfeeding, Childbirth and Baby Care Classes. There is so much to learn and know before having a baby.  Much of parenting is on-the-job-learning, however being prepared by taking a prenatal Childbirth and Baby Care Class is something you will not regret.  The team at Babies First has developed classes on specific parenting topics (breastfeeding, childbirth and baby care) to support families as they take on their most rewarding roles yet – becoming parents. Check out our Calendar for upcoming classes.

Make Safety a Top Priority by Taking an Infant/Child First Aid and CPR Workshop

Many of the parents we meet tell us about their baby’s firsts, and we love to hear about them. In fact, our First Aid and CPR Workshop for parents and grandparents was developed to help you be ready for milestones in your baby’s life, including:
  Feeding your baby solids (i.e. dealing with gagging or choking) 
 Staying calm in case of emergency (i.e. how to administer CPR)
 Caring for your baby if they fall or are injured
This course was specifically designed to help increase parents’ (or other caregivers’) knowledge and confidence about their ability to provide First aid, CPR and keep their child safe.  Check out our calendar for upcoming classes.

Postpartum Doula Care

Who will care for you after the baby is born? Some of the things Erin can help you with are infant feeding support, emotional and physical recovery after birth, assistance with newborn care, baby soothing techniques, light housekeeping, light meal preparation, accompanying you to doctors appointments, referrals to local resources and overnight visits.

To us a postpartum doula is just a really knowledgeable friend who can support you without judgement, give you the confidence you might need, help you to feel like you are not alone on this amazing journey you are embarking on.  Erin has trained with Doula Training Canada and would love to support you and your growing family in your home and will travel to York Region and surrounding areas.

Our Happy Families


Katie was a lifesaver and helped get me through those rough first weeks as a first time mom. I always knew I wanted to breastfeed, and she gave me the knowledge and confidence to have faith in my body. I would highly recommend her to friends and family.

My husband and I had mixed emotions about taking Prenatal Classes, we weren’t sure it was worth the time.  The class was so great at the end everyone stood up and clapped!  It was fun and we learned so much and are so thankful we took the class.  We highly recommend the Babies First Prenatal Classes to anyone and everyone expecting we meet.  Take the class, trust us you will be so happy you did!

Once we started feeding our daughter solid foods there were a few gagging episodes that had us so nervous we stopped solid feeding until we could learn CPR.  We felt panicked that would wouldn’t know what to do if something happened.  We took the Baby/Child CPR Workshop and learned so much information not just about choking and CPR rescues but about emergencies like cuts, and poisoning.  We loved the workshop and think every parent should take it.

– Sarah and Eric
When I called you, I had had enough of breast feeding, but I wasn’t ready to give up, and then you came over and were amazing. You put everything into perspective, you gave me the guidance I needed, you were always there when I had a question/concern. I am so happy that I was able to call upon you! Because of you, ‘J’ has been a happy breastfed baby for the past year, because of you, I haven’t dumped hundreds of dollars towards buying formula, he’s so healthy, has never really gotten sick, apart from a common cold, and if he did he would bounce back quickly. We have this amazing bond, which I will cherish forever. I am so lucky to have had this experience, and I thank you and your support. This must be a passion of yours, because that would explain the perfectionism in your work. Thank you for coming into my life and helping me with one of the hardest, most wonderful things I have ever done.
