AS WE WERE EXPECTING OUR FIRST CHILD OF COURSE WE WANTED TO COVER THE BASICS, BUT ALSO WANTED THE OPPORTUNITY TO SPEAK TO HIGHLY TRAINED PROFESSIONALS THAT WOULD PROVIDE US WITH A FULLY ROUNDED APPROACH TO ALL ASPECTS OF PREGNANCY, BIRTH AND WHAT TO EXPECT AFTER. WE WERE DELIGHTED WHEN WE FOUND BUMP TO CRADLE, THE SMALL CLASS WAS INTIMATE, THE SPEAKERS WERE INFORMATIVE AND ENGAGING AND WE MET OTHER FUTURE MUMS AND DADS WHO WE COULD SHARE WORRIES AND THOUGHTS WITH.  I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND BUMP TO CRADLE!’.

Founder of bump to cradle and mum of two, Dr. Miriam Walsh, on what's so different about bump to cradle courses:

"First and foremost, our courses are delivered by Bristol-based experts, giving parents-to-be the chance to be informed and make their own choices.

The team all feel passionately about improving antenatal education - which is why we are all working hard to find and deliver the best we can for our parents-to-be. With our antenatal classes, there is as much focus on the postnatal period and how to look after your baby as there is on the later stages of pregnancy and your labour as we believe this is so important to feel as prepared for as possible.

We deliver non-judgemental information to parents-to-be and, as many of us are parents ourselves, we truly understand that pregnancy, labour and the prospect of having a newborn baby to look after can be daunting. We are committed to do all we can to allay your fears of the unknown and are realistic about the ups and downs of this key period in life. Above all, we completely acknowledge that it can be overwhelming, but we also know from experience that armed with good knowledge of the options and all the possibilities, we feel that you will leave our antenatal classes feeling more positive, confident and much more informed about what will come next.

You will be given the opportunity to meet other mums and dads to be who are due around a similar time, to help you to build your local tribe of support for that all important fourth trimester. Our classes are relaxed, informal, always involve some local delicious goodies to fuel your aching bodies and tired minds (we know what it's like getting through those last few weeks!) and, we hope, enjoyable! 

Antenatal classes can be an excellent way to meet other people going through exactly the same thing at the same time. We feel that our classes can form the start of a fantastic local support network for you. And, of course, we also know that partners and fathers can play a huge role in any newborn baby’s life - and so we invite partners to most of our sessions. 

Over the Bump to Cradle antenatal course, you will access invaluable advice and support, enabling you to feel more relaxed and confident as you approach your due date, during labour and beyond."
