The Group offers midwife-led antenatal education that is based on the most recent research and underpinned by our years of first hand experience as midwives and new parents. We are all experienced NHS midwives currently practicing in all areas of midwifery, including antenatal care, birth, and life with a newborn. We are passionate about pregnancy and birth, and feel privileged to be part of this process as midwives.
Our classes have been carefully crafted to prepare you for labour, birth, and the early days of parenthood. We offer separate courses for first-time parents, second-time (or subsequent) parents, as well as giving the option of private classes in the comfort of your own home.
We ensure that classes are stimulating, interactive and non-judgemental, and always make time for questions to ensure that you feel prepared no matter how your birth story unfolds. We are always delighted to see the friendships that new parents form during our courses and at our social events. We encourage you to share and support each other through the transition to parenthood.
Our unique 1:1 Hypnobirthing couples workshops teaches you how use this practice effectively through your pregnancy alongside other self help techniques such as aromatherapy. These sessions allow personalised time to plan and prepare for birth in a way that is specific to you, confidence building and enhancing birth partners role.Follow us on Facebook and Instagram @thegroupantenatal
