York Antenatal Classes

Antenatal Classes In York

The antenatal classes are held one evening per week over a four week period.



What To Expect From My Antenatal Classes

My antenatal classes promote the normality of child birth; the more knowledge you and your partner have, the better equiped and more empowered you will become during the birth process and in the care of your newborn baby.


In providing evidence based, antenatal classes to small groups of 6 to 8 couples in the comfort of a country house located between York and Leeds, I aim to give you a realistic picture of a labour birth, the birthing process and the early days with your new baby.


I aim to allow you a positive birth experience and help you to become more confident and relaxed parents.
