This is is the online version of the Expecting Antenatal course. The online antenatal classes cover the full Expecting curriculum. You will be given 30 days access to all 4 expecting sessions to stream in the comfort of your own home. You’ll also receive access to additional downloadable content to supplement each session; please only refer to these after watching the relevant session. Within a few days of completing your booking an Expecting midwife will be in touch to arrange your video-call.
Whilst watching the online antenatal classes you will receive prompts to pause the videos. During this time please write down any questions you have. You may find that these questions are answered later in the course but there will be some questions relevant to your own personal situation. These questions, if not answered later in the videos, can be asked during your video call with one of our Expecting midwives along with any other issues you’d like to discuss.
