New Baby Class

New Baby Education In the Comfort of Your Home

Live New Baby Course

Our New Baby class, as part of our online Antenatal course is all about what happens after the birth of your baby.  We know that most parents-to-be are focused on the labour and birth of their baby, and as such, preparing for life with a newborn, what to expect, how it may feel, what choices you may be asked can often feel daunting.

Worry not, in this class we delve into all the practicalities of caring for a new-born. Covering everything from the first moments with your baby, skin to skin contact, safe sleep to changing nappies and bathing your baby.

This class will help normalise the early weeks of your life as a new parent. Our experienced midwives will explore with you how you can help your baby be more at ease by responding to their needs and understanding better what those needs are and help to answer many of the questions you may have, as well as help clear up many of the myths and facts that you may hear as a parent-to-be about life with a new-born. 

As always, our classes are live and interactive, we love answering questions and encourage any interruptions – because we know if you have a question, someone else will have thought of it too!  The class is recorded and sent to you to watch back whenever you need – which can be so handy for the practical exercises such as nappy changing, or cord care.  And our support continues after the class ends, with our midwives always happy to offer advice and a chat via email or zoom when you need it.

This class, which is all about baby, aims to support you in feeling confident in making the right choices for a great life with a new baby
