Antenatal Classes

About Birth & Babies Antenatal

We are a group of independent antenatal teachers, who all hold a university accredited qualification in Antenatal Education awarded by the NCT. We have many years of experience in facilitating childbirth preparation courses where we identify and discuss the things that are important to the women and their birth partners rather than following a prescribed list.

As a local, independent group of teachers, we have the autonomy to offer a more personalised service than national organisations, flexibility in terms of course formats and venues and low overheads are reflected in our course prices.

Contact Sian on 07949 845441 for more information.
