Becoming a new mum (again) is life-changing. Pregnancy, childbirth and the first few months with a newborn are unlike any other time in a mother’s life. 

This online antenatal programme means that you can feel confident about getting ready to meet your baby, all from the comfort of your own home! You can explore your birth choices, postnatal prep, breastfeeding and your emotional wellbeing with your family and birth partner.

This is my first experience with an antenatal course as I am expecting my first child, the course is very informative and very beneficial, so far I have really enjoyed all the content and the course layout is very clear, structured and well organised. I’m looking forward to gaining more knowledge and feeling much more confident for labour and afterbirth! 🙂
