There are many reasons why Antenatal Classes are important. Essentially, when it comes to labour and giving birth; knowledge is power. The more you know, the more choices you can make and the greater the understanding you have as to what is happening during this time. This in turn can ease any concerns or anxieties you may have.
Our classes cover all you and your partner need to know for your baby’s arrival and beyond. They also provide the opportunity to meet other parents-to-be.
Presented by our midwives, the classes take place over 2 or 3 sessions depending on your time and availability.
