Antenatal Course

Becoming a parent is life-changing. It’s wonderful, it’s challenging, it’s messy. It’s also exciting, full of self-sacrifice and is without doubt one of the most rewarding adventures you will ever embark on. There’s so much conflicting advice out there, so whose opinion do you listen too?

Our course is everything you’d get at a hospital based course, plus the biblical stuff and more! It is presented by a team including professional midwives and baby clinic nurses, with private and hospital experience.

Our aim is to prepare you for your new arrival, enabling you to make the choices that will be best for you and your family, and create opportunity for you to build relationships that will help you through this new chapter.

Course Content

Subjects include: Third Trimester of Pregnancy, Birth Plans, Natural Labour & Birth, Caesarean Sections and Pain Relief.

Post-birth: Breastfeeding, Baby basics, Vaccinations, Budgeting, Post-Natal Depression, Marriage & Sex and a quick refresher session for the grandparents.

We also look at what the Bible says about pregnancy and childbirth, do some myth busting and have plenty of time for questions!

Group Size

We can take a maximum of 10 couples per course.
