Wolverhampton – Midwife Hosted Antenatal Classes

£115 (Pay deposit now of £20.00)

Ordinarily these classes are held in Wolverhampton. However during the CORONA VIRUS these classes will be held virtually with your host midwife via Zoom. Meet others from your area and have all your questions answered. Once CORONA VIRUS is over, get together in person for a reunion. A £15 discount per couple will be applied during this time making the total cost £100. After completing your booking, your host midwife will be in contact regarding your course and options for paying the balance of your course costs. One booking covers both expectant mum and one birth partner.
