Antenatal Courses

The Birth Preparation Company was born due to us frequently encountering women whose labour, birth or early days with their new baby did not match their expectations. We believe that women have a significantly higher chance of having a positive birth experience if they are prepared for all eventualities, because when it comes to childbirth, things might not always go to plan. This is why we have decided to create realistic antenatal classes which would offer honest, relevant and unbiased information. Our antenatal classes don’t include any games or role play, but instead offer plenty of hands-on experience, especially when it comes to infant feeding and newborn care.

Created and run by an experienced practising midwife, our courses are relaxed, open, honest and non-judgmental and include everything you need to know for your labour, birth and early days with your baby. You will meet other expectant parents with babies due at similar times, giving you the opportunity to create a support network and potentially friends for the years to come. Our antenatal courses are being held face-to-face.
