Our new Bump to Cradle video showing our expert-led antenatal classes in Bristol as an alternative to traditional classes, such as NCT.

Would you like the opportunity to not only meet other parents-to-be but also receive quality information and advice from ante- and post-natal experts?

Our classes include Women's Health during and post-pregnancy, the birth including medical intervention in labour, what's normal and what's not in young babies, your emotional health, how to soothe your baby and get them into a routine, how to feed your baby - whichever way you choose to do it and much, much more.

At our antenatal classes you will gain unparalleled access to specialists who have been handpicked for their expertise in every aspect of pregnancy and early parenthood.

Our specialists cover everything you need to know in preparation for parenthood.

The team all feel passionately about improving antenatal education. 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 understand that pregnancy, labour and the prospect of having a newborn baby to look after can be daunting. We try to allay your fears of the unknown and are realistic about the ups and downs of this key period in life.  We acknowledge that it can be overwhelming, but 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. Our classes are relaxed, informal and aim to be fun.  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. We also feel strongly that Dads to be play a huge role in the newborn baby’s life and so we invite partners to most of our sessions. 

Over the 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.


 ''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!'.''
