OUR MISSION IS TO IMPROVE THE QUALITY OF ANTENATAL EDUCATION SO THAT YOU CAN LEARN FROM THE EXPERTS, MAKE FRIENDS FOR LIFE AND APPROACH PARENTHOOD FEELING CALM, CONFIDENT AND INFORMED.
At Bump to Cradle, we believe that antenatal classes should be relaxed and sociable but also truly informative - delivering evidence based information from highly trained, experienced and knowledgable experts.
We offer a comprehensive course, superior to traditional antenatal classes, packed with up-to-date, balanced information.
Your pregnancy, labour and the first few months with your newborn can be an anxiety-inducing and challenging time and we strive to ensure that you feel as prepared and as confident as can be.
‘Absolutely fantastic antenatal class. We had experts from obstetricians, to GPs, to sleep consultants all come in and chat to us about all of our options in a totally judgement free environment. Highly recommended for anyone who doesn't want to feel pushed to go in a certain direction but just wants all the info!!’ Sophie
‘Bump to Cradle helped us feel so confident that we were making decisions that were right for us and our baby with all the information we needed; more than that, through it we've met a wonderful group of fellow parents-to-be who are going to be such a vital part of our support network.’ Ross
'Fantastic classes delivered by professionals on a level all can understand. Extremely friendly environment, memories of crying with laughter at one point(!), but info provided is totally on point and nothing better could have prepared me for being a new mum. Highly recommended to all parents-to-be, these classes are worth their weight in gold! Thank you Mim for such a brilliant experience.' Ali
'I would highly recommend the Bump to Cradle course. The course content was very comprehensive with excellent speakers. The course was also non- judgmental unlike some other ante natal classes available. We had a lot of laughs throughout which made some of the more scary/gross bits (!) easier to handle! Miriam and all the speakers were lovely and approachable. I met some great girls at the sessions who have been an amazing support network since. So glad we attended!!!' Rebecca
'This was such a fantastic course - we cannot recommend it enough. My husband and I really enjoyed each evening and learned so much invaluable info about the birth and first few months of parenthood.' Laura
'We really enjoyed Bump to Cradle! The course structure was logical and the handbook issued at the first session was really useful to refer to key information and to make notes during the session. The course content was informative and the team delivering the course was very knowledgeable. It was great to be able to talk to practicing professionals who deal with antenatal/pregnancy on a daily basis; they were always happy to answer any questions you had (even if you thought they were silly!) without judgement.'
