FIRST TIME PARENTS ANTENATAL CLASS


Our first-time parents antenatal courses are made-up of interactive and dynamic midwife-led classes. These sessions provide honest, evidence-based, and realistic information, with course content equally split between labour and birth, and the early weeks with your new baby. This ensures that each of our couples feel confident in making informed choices. We also give plenty of opportunity for questions and discussion, and during each course, two of our previous couples return to tell their own birth-story.

Our sessions are limited to eight couples, and are held in a private room in a pub, maintaining an intimate and relaxed atmosphere where lasting friendships are formed. We stay for dinner (lunch at the weekend) following the final session, facilitate the creation of WhatsApp groups, and encourage regular meet-ups during and after the course, all of which helps to develop that all-important early support network.

The course includes our tailor made handbooks, “The Path to Birth,” and “The Fourth Trimester,” as well as unlimited email support from midwife Vicky.

We also offer a 10% discount on our midwife-led Hypnobirthing courses when booked with one of our antenatal courses.  

Further benefits include:

10% discount at Lenka Wills Pregnancy and Newborn Photography.

FREE baby carrier and sling workshop with London Slings.

An invitation to join 'Mother Cuppa', our free mother and baby group run by Midwife Rachel at Takes a Village in East Dulwich, or The Chancery Pub in Beckenham.


TESTIMONIALS

This course is so invaluable! ... Topics were balanced, very informative and we didn’t feel pressured into one way of doing something over another.
— Susan
These classes are the best thing we’ve done as we prepare for having our first baby. We didn’t know what to expect but it’s really relaxed and good fun while giving you all the info you need to know in a non scary way!
