So, you have booked in with the Midwife, got lots of information to read, things to remember to eat, drink and not to eat!  What next?  First of all, book yourself onto one of the NCT antenatal courses, then why not consider joining our Bumps and Babies if you are free during the day.

NCT Tip: Attend our groups whilst you are still pregnant, perhaps at the beginning of your maternity leave. You will make friends before you give birth and it’ll be far less ‘daunting’ to take your newborn out of the house if you already feel comfortable with the people and surroundings.

Antenatal & Refresher Courses

We offer courses to small groups of pregnant women and couples. You learn about all the different aspects of pregnancy, childbirth and early parenthood and get to meet other expectant parents who live locally. We also run childbirth refresher courses for parents expecting their second child or more. A fee is charged for these courses but discretionary reductions are available. Classes are popular so it is wise to book as early as you can to ensure a place. Contact Melanie on 0844 2436910 (option 6), email:, or view our courses section.
