Antenatal classes help to prepare you for your baby’s birth and give you guidance on how to look after and feed your baby. They are also a good way of getting information and airing your concerns - not just with professionals but with other mothers-to-be. And friendships formed at these meetings can be a great source of mutual support during the first few months with a newborn baby.
The way we offer parent education classes is currently changing. We now run our classes out in the community so more people can access them. Please see below for a full list of centres.
Bump, Birth & Beyond Workshop (runs over 2 sessions);
