It will consist of 6 hours of interactive learning via Zoom and a further enhanced support via WhatsApp. 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.

All courses are held online on Zoom and you will be offered a place depending on your location, due date and course availability.
