We are pleased to be working with Walsall Commissioning Group to offer free antenatal courses to parents-to-be living in the Walsall borough.
Courses are held in local Children's Centres and in the Midwifery Led Unit, providing information on pregnancy, birth and caring for your new baby
NCT’s Preparation for Birth and Beyond (PBB) antenatal education programme is offered to you over a number of sessions at a convenient time and location. It covers topics such as:
- My/our developing baby
- Changes for me and us
- My/our health and wellbeing
- Giving birth and meeting my/our baby
- Caring for my/our baby
- Who is there for me/us – people and services
You will have the chance to learn skills to help you cope with labour and caring for a baby. If you attend with a partner, you can also explore how to work together as a team to co-parent and maintain a strong relationship with one another.
Parents-to be have the opportunity to meet others in their area who are expecting a baby at the same time. They will be able to share their feelings and experiences of pregnancy and parenting with one another and get support from people who are learning too.
How to book
Please choose the time and location that is most suitable for you and your partner and then call or email the centre.
