Why would I choose this over traditional antenatal classes?

The Bump to Cradle antenatal course is delivered by a team of experts who are all professional antenatal and postnatal practitioners, in a fantastic range of fields and with a broad range of experiences to support you on your journey to new parenthood. 

Who better to prepare you for a relaxed labour where you feel truly in control than a midwife and a consultant obstetrician?

And who better to teach you some of the practical skills of caring for your newborn than a paediatrician, a feeding consultant and a paediatric nurse?

And not forgetting the all-important mental health aspects of new parenthood - our women’s mental health specialists will guide you through what to expect and what to do to support each other.

The Bump to Cradle antenatal course is designed to ensure that you and your partner feel fully prepared, expertly-informed and physically and emotionally empowered before you welcome your baby into the world. 

And did we mention the fully organised social event for you and your new parenting tribe? We won’t make you wait until you’ve had the babies either…

“absolutely fantastic antenatal class…
