Not educational as it does not contribute to employment, unless you call 20 years of child-rearing employment.  I doubt that prenatal classes are eligible, but if CRA does not ask to see the receipts it is a possibility.  At least it is borderline.  Be aware that medical costs must be more than 3% of your net income before you can begin to claim.

According to the CRA website, they ARE covered.

Pre-natal and post-natal treatments paid to a medical practitioner or a public or licensed private hospital.

My feeling is that pre-natal classes would not be considered treatments, but you have nothing to lose by giving it a shot.
