ABOUT THE GROUP

Our intensive weekend course is a complete antenatal course that leaves couples fully informed and prepared for labour, birth and caring for their new baby. We have frequent breaks during the day, giving couples lots of time to ask questions and mingle. 

We welcome you with pastries fruit teas & coffee's and then sit down together in the restaurant for lunch to relax and get to know one another. All food and drinks through the course are covered by the course fee.

The weekend group is run in The Lordship Pub in East Dulwich. Couples that attend these groups normally live in East Dulwich, Herne Hill, Forest Hill, and the surrounding areas.
