We also offer relaxation sessions as well as infant feeding sessions in partnership with the trust.

The free 6-hour interactive course aims to prepare you for the birth of your baby and the early days of parenting. You'll feel more confident about making the right decisions when caring for your new baby and looking after your own health and wellbeing. At the same time, you can meet others going through the same life change and form a support group.
