Expecting a baby can be exciting, often confusing and sometimes stressful time for a pregnant woman, her partner and family.
Being able to talk about your concerns, ask questions and find solutions in the company of others going through the same experience can be really helpful.

Our classes are small, informal and friendly groups for pregnant women and their partners. These classes offer a unique approach to childbirth preparation. The classes are run by registered midwives.

Private Group Classes

Understanding what is happening to your body in pregnancy and during the birth process will give you the confidence and self-belief to birth your baby.

It will assist you and your partner to participate fully with health professionals in choices and decisions that concern you and your baby.

Pregnancy and birth experiences are all different. Even when a birth experience differs from hopes and expectations, it can and should still be a positive birth experience because a woman and her partner have been confident that the right decisions have been made at the right time.

Our antenatal sessions will provide you and your partner with the confidence and self-belief you need for labour, birth and parenting.

Our approach to antenatal education is based firmly on the belief that you and your partner are the best possible people to make choices and decisions regarding your birth and baby.

Our sessions provide you with the knowledge and skills needed to support each other both as the birth of your baby approaches and into the parenting period.

The classes aim to be informative, interactive, enjoyable and fun. They are held in our clinic in a relaxed, comfortable and homely atmosphere. Refreshments are provided

The classes are held in Hinckley the first 3 Mondays of each month 6pm til 8.30pm or the last Sunday of each Month 10am – 5pm
