Antenatal/Parentcraft Classes

at University Hospitals of Leicester NHS

Tummy2Mummy are excited to announce we have been contracted to provide the antenatal/parent craft classes at the Leicester University Maternity Hospitals. Based at Leicester Royal Maternity and Leicester General Maternity Units, in purpose built parent craft education rooms.

Our antenatal sessions aim to provide you and your partner with the confidence and self-belief you need for labour, birth and parenting.
The classes aim to be informative, interactive, enjoyable and fun.
The sessions offered are arranged for smaller groups maximum of 10 couples to allow time to suit you and your partner with greater choice and availability.

Our Classes are taught by qualified experienced midwives that work within the hospital and community setting. They will offer you information, support and advice based from their experiences using evidence based and regulated research.
