Make life-long friends, learn, and create lasting memories with Mommy Connections Cape Breton!

Are you expecting and looking to learn and connect with other pregnant parents during your journey to parenthood? Our Mom to Be program offers an amazing mix of information and activities to help prepare you for baby’s arrival, and have fun while you’re at it! Whether it’s your first baby or your fifth, you’ll fit right in!

We’ll meet Monday evenings from 6:30-8pm at various locations. This 6-week program is created for pregnant parents, ideally in their second trimester (but any stage welcome)! Like our other programs, Mom to Be is designed so that you can take it multiple (up to 3) times if you love it, and the topics/activities will be different each series! The earlier you start in pregnancy, the more opportunity you have to connect, grow,  and benefit from the resources you learn about!

Included in your $140(+tax) registration fee is:

  • Six classes full of expert information, exclusive activities, community and connection
  • Resources and supplies from each session’s presenter/activity
  • A free professional picture of you and your baby bump, taken by local photographer Wendy Gouthro (Edgewood Studio) with the option to purchase your full gallery at a special Mommy Connections rate if you love your photos
  • Occasional refreshments/snacks/treats to enjoy
  • A private Facebook group so that you can get to know your fellow moms-to-be better
  • A swag bag with lots of goodies, samples, and coupons from local and national partners
  • A one-time $15 discount on our popular Mom & Baby program for you to use anytime after baby arrives

When you sign up for the Early Fall Mommy Connections Mom to Be program ($140+tax), get the September-October Best Birth Forward 8-week childbirth education series with Belle Vie Birth & Baby for HALF PRICE ($180 instead of $360)! That’s a $521 value for only $341 all in! To take advantage of this exclusive collaborative offer, please reach out to after registering for Mom to Be and claim your discount or to request more information.

Why Mommy Connections Mom to Be?

Here are some highlights of this one-of-a-kind program:

  • It’s a great way—and reason—to get out of the house during your pregnancy
  • The environment is warm, welcoming and inclusive
  • It provides a unique chance to try relevant services/activities and meet providers ‘before you buy’
  • You’ll make connections that will carry you through your pregnancy, mat leave, and beyond
  • The expert information you’ll receive will help you feel more prepared to parent

Sample Session  Agenda

Class topics are subject to change


Q: How far along in my pregnancy should I be when I register?
A: The ideal time to do this program is when you are early in your second trimester, as you will have the opportunity to participate in subsequent programs (with new topics/activities!) to continue learning and growing, if you choose. However, we welcome anyone at any stage of pregnancy, as long as you expect to finish the series before your due date. The sooner you sign up, the more time you have to prepare and process information, and participate in services you enjoyed learning about as well! *In the event that you miss any sessions due to birth, we can credit up to 2 classes to put towards a future Mom & Baby program.*

Q: Can I attend just a few classes?
A: Single sessions are not available. A huge focus of our program is community-building, which can only be created when a group is consistent from start to finish. We understand things come up and you may not be able to attend all classes, but you should plan to/be able to attend when you sign up.

Q: Can I join a program after the start date?
A: If there are any spaces remaining after a program begins, you can join late! Once we are more than 2 weeks into a program, please reach out first before registering. You may still be able to join, but the fee will only be prorated up to 2 classes. The cost will be adjusted for you as a sale so you can register as usual. We’ll handle the rest and get you up to speed!

Q: How many moms-to-be are in each class?
A: We aim to keep Mom to Be classes between 6-10 participants to foster a cozy, community feel.

Q: Can my partner attend with me?
A: As this is not formal “birth prep” or complete prenatal education (see Belle Vie Birth & Baby for comprehensive childbirth education options), we ask that just the pregnant person attend so you can really connect and create those connections with the others in the class. We want you to feel totally comfortable talking about anything and everything!

Q: When will I find out the schedule of topics/activities? Are the class types/activities guaranteed?
A: You will receive an official schedule before your session begins. A tentative agenda is available above, but is subject to change. We cannot guarantee that a particular topic/presenter will be a part of any given session. Class topics change from session to session for variety and are subject to local experts’ availability. We can, however, promise you a great mix of things!

Q: What is your cancellation policy?
A: Please note, registration cancellations are subject to a $30 administration fee, if applicable. View our full cancellation policy here. A minimum of 6 participants are needed in order to run this class. In the event that we need to cancel due to low registration, you will receive a full refund. You will be given the opportunity to be placed on the waitlist for the next series.

Q: Have you made any changes due to COVID-19?
A:  Please read our new policy here.
