What we Offer


At Beyond the Bump we believe that giving birth in Canada should be an empowering experience – but too often expecting parents are left to navigate childbirth and postpartum with minimal support and outdated information.

That’s why we are so passionate about offering Canadian parents the very best in prenatal courses, private postpartum and lactation support, and child safety workshops.

ABOUT

Our Story

Our Story

Hi! I’m Lara

Owner of Beyond The Bump Education

As a Registered Nurse and Mom living in Fredericton, New Brunswick, I know the challenges that parents face in Canada. I created Beyond The Bump Education because of the challenges I personally faced, and because of everything I see new and expecting parents struggling with all of the time.

I am a Mom to a very busy boy and a tireless dog, a wife, and I have a Bachelor’s degree in Nursing with a decade (yikes!) of experience. I have worked in Labour and Delivery, Community Health in Northern Outpost, and in Emergency across Canada. As an RN practicing in New Brunswick, I must adhere to the Canadian Nursing Code of Ethics and the New Brunswick Standards of Nursing Practice for all prenatal and postpartum healthcare provided.

I am so excited to have you here! This is all for you. I hope it helps you feel safe, supported and EMPOWERED!
