Antenatal Classes

Our locally run Antenatal classes are designed to help you focus on your pregnancy and get you ready for labour and birth. They're also a great place to meet other parents-to-be. Our classes are booked according to your due date, so you'll get to meet a group of parents whose babies will be born at a similar time.

Our teachers liaise with local midwives and have a good relationship with the local maternity services teams. East Lancashire is very lucky to have a fabulous Birth Centre in Blackburn (opened 6th September 2010) as well as a new Mother and Baby unit which opened in Burnley in November 2010.

Our course format varies, we currently run courses at Springwood Childrens Centre, Whalley.
