Your antenatal class.
We hope you find our antenatal sessions fun, informative and a valuable learning experience. This is YOUR antenatal session and we want YOU to leave feeling confident, knowledgeable and well informed. Let's learn and have some fun. Donna & Lynn.
About the sessions.
Our session will last approximately 3 hours. Within this time we will have a break allowing for refreshments and enough time to stretch your legs. The ideal time to attend our antenatal sessions is between 30-37 weeks gestation. You are welcome to attend later in pregnancy.
The antenatal session will cost £35 for two spaces. Please advise us if you are coming alone so we can allocate the extra space to someone else.
What do we cover?
Early and Established labour
Pain relief choices
Immediate postnatal care
Early Days and what to expect
Care of the newborn (and mum!)
Adjusting to life as a family
Our antenatal session mentors are Lynn Nelson and Donna Gilchrist. Donna and Lynn met in 1998 when they were both young petrified student midwives and over the past 20 years both working as midwives (and being mums!) they have picked up a few tricks of the trade. They will be happy to let you in on these little secrets which will help you adjust to life as a new family and take care of your baby.
We believe learning should be fun and interactive and that visual and interaction is the best method of learning. During the session there are plenty of opportunities to get involved, because after all it's your class.
Our sessions are tailored to all parents to be not just first time parents. If you want a little refresher, or you need to give Granny and Grandad a little update we are here to cater for everyone.
