Description

Our Virtual Antenatal Classes provide the same great group vibe of our local classes but are available worldwide via the magic of the internet. You’ll receive access to all course videos and materials as well as conference calls with your group of parents, with similar due dates, along with your host midwife; this is a great time to ask questions, share stories and create community. You’ll also be able to share the journey with your group and host midwife via a WhatsApp group throughout pregnancy and the early days of parenting.

Once all the group’s babies have arrived you’ll have a class reunion, either virtually or in person if preferred, and logistically practical.

Each session is informal & as interactive as you wish it to be. Please don’t be nervous. The video content and additional resources can be watched/accessed when convenient to you. You’ll then join the pre-scheduled conference video calls with your group and host midwife where you’ll receive advice tailored to your pregnancy as well as benefit from the questions asked by others and the camaraderie of being with others in the same boat.
