A preparation class for individuals and couples expecting their first baby run by experienced midwife Jackie.

A class is held every second Saturday of the month from 10am-1pm and costs £60 per couple. You can now book directly online at www.bookeo.com/archwayhealthhub

Advanced registration is essential and we would suggest that you book your class for no more than a month or two before your due date. We welcome individual mums-to-be, birth partners and couples and aim to provide you with practical strategies and support to help you with your transition to parenthood.

Topics covered will include:-

  • What happens during labour, birth and once your baby is born.
  • Recognising when labour is beginning and when to contact your midwife of labour ward.
  • Strategies to help you cope at every stage – moving around and changing position, use of birthing aids, natural and pharmacological pain relief and overcoming obstacles.
  • Feeding, nappy changing and settling your baby.
  • The first few days at home, changing emotions and the reality of being parents.
