Midwife-Led Antenatal Classes
Preparing Yourself for Labour and Birth
My Pre- Birth Courses run over three weeks and each session will be two hours long. Classes are fun and friendly whilst extremely informative at the same time.
I will teach you and your partner everything you need to know to help you to have the birth of your choice and prepare for your baby. I have a wealth of experience to share with you.
For many couples these days, this will be your first experience of pregnancy, labour and / or birth.
