ANTENATAL COURSES

Midwife Led - Honest & Practical Advice

Our mission is to fully prepare couples for late pregnancy, labour, birth and the practicalities of caring for your baby. Mixing practical tasks and two-way discussions with group activities our courses are a great way to prepare for your new arrival.  NO role play involved!

ANTENATAL COURSE CONTENT

Our Midwife led antenatal courses are delivered across three weeks to both mums and birth partners in groups of up to 8. They are packed with balanced and realistic information to fully prepare you for late pregnancy, labour, birth and the practicalities of caring for your baby. There is plenty of opportunity to ask questions throughout the classes or in private at the end.


The classes take into account every couple's birth preferences and previous experiences, so you feel well supported and informed. Read on below to discover what you will learn about in each antenatal class.

Courses are held  outside of working hours in pubs and cafes, giving you the opportunity to enjoy a meal or refreshments at the same time - taking advantage of negotiated discounts on food and drink. You'll also get free goodies and 10% off at Mothercare.

When you book an antenatal course, you will receive Midwife support  immediately and a FREE home visit after the birth.​
