What’s Covered in Our Full Day Antenatal Class?

The transition into parenthood is a unique and life-changing experience. Our 1 day live antenatal class has been developed to support expectant parents on this journey by providing them with the most up-to-date, evidence-based information. The purpose of this class is to provide you with knowledge, confidence and peace of mind during this time.

Tailored Class Content

The Baby Academy was created to help first-time expectant parents navigate the often overwhelming amount of content around pregnancy and early parenthood. The online class covers everything from labour and birth to breastfeeding and safe sleep. You will have the opportunity to ask any questions you may have in our live Q&A (you do not need a mic or video). Unlike other antenatal classes, we include Baby First-Aid free of charge in this class as we believe it is one of the most important things you can learn as an expectant parent.
