How I Became “The Baby Specialist”

As a perinatal educator, I have nourished my passion for babies by working with numerous families. In order to reach even more parents, I launched my own company in 2013: “My Prenatal Classes, Marie Fortier Inc.”

After 30 years of service as a clinical nurse in perinatology, I retired from the public healthcare system and did not renew my nursing license with the Order of Nurses of Quebec starting from September 2016.

For the past 10 years, I have dedicated myself wholeheartedly to providing you with up-to-date, relevant, and evidence-based information to better prepare and support you in your parenting role.
