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. There is plenty of opportunity for questions and discussion during each course, and a fantastic opportunity to hear some first hand experiences from previous couples returning to tell their own birth-story.

Our sessions are limited to eight couples, and are held in a private space above Brown and Green Cafe, maintaining an intimate and relaxed atmosphere where lasting friendships are formed. We 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 and the Team.

If you have any questions about the course or have any special requests please contact us

"Overall it's been a really useful introduction to all things birth and baby related. We found it useful to ask questions to clarify details on things we had learnt and read. And to understand and visualise things in a practical way. Plus you were ace too! Smart, fun, and not to serious! Thanks so much." Sarah & Theo


"I found vicky extremely knowledgeable and brilliant at putting everyone at ease. She's really helped me become a confident mother-to-be. I shall greatly miss her!" Mash& Milou
