Courses are run from our own rooms with experiences from new parents offered to allow 'real life' stories to be discussed. There are plenty of opportunities for getting to know other class members.
Our classes are facilitated by members of our centre who are qualified Childbirth Educators and have a passion for providing up-to-date information to expectant parents to prepare them in their new role. Our classes are a great place to meet others in the same situation and make lifelong friends.
Spaces fill up quickly and we recommend that you plan to complete your course by the time you are around 36 weeks if possible, so don't delay!
