Why Choose Our Antenatal Classes?
These classes give you an opportunity to chat to a real midwife and other families. No pre-recorded videos means you can ask the questions that matter to you! Similarly, connecting with others while learning also makes this a very rewarding experience.
Minimal time commitment
The courses are a total of 3 hours, which run in two 90 minutes sessions over 2 weeks.
Class sizes are small.
With no more than 8 couples per class you will have the opportunity to interact and ask questions as the class proceeds.
The course includes an introduction to Hypnobirthing!
We think everyone should have the tools and skills hypnobirthing offers. That’s why we include hypnobirthing teaching within the antenatal classes. You also get 3 birth relaxation and preparation audio tracks free to download.
Up to date and evidence based.

Fun, friendly and informative
As first time parents we were unsure what to expect during and after the birth of our daughter, and knew very little about the options available to us. Kathryn is incredibly knowledgeable and was very quickly able to dispel any fears or misconceptions that we had about labour and delivery, and helped us to make more informed decisions about our birth plan. The classes were highly informative but also fun and informal – much more interactive and engaging than the “powerpoint” style teaching we had experienced in other antenatal classes.
We finished the course feeling excited and confident about the birth – a great start to our parenting journey.
Thank you Kathryn!
Our experience with hypnobirthing.
We had our classes on hypnobirth given by Kathryn and it was really helpful to us. With CoVID lockdowns in place we were not getting any pre birth classes as before and we were in need of a refresher course in birthing itself and how CoVID protocols have affected it all. Kathryn was very helpful in answering all our question with excellent demonstration tools. Her hypnobirthing classes trained us to breath effectively and pull back into our happy place, to deal more effectively with the pain during birthing process. We could really see the difference between the birth of our first daughter and second son.
Thanks Kathryn for all your help and efforts.
My antenatal class experience
My husband and I really needed this course as it had been over 5 years since we were going through pregnancy again and all that comes with it. The course leader, Kathryn, is so wonderfully knowledgable and we learnt things we didn’t know before. We felt very relaxed and everything was explained in a fun and understandable way!
Having the course participant number small allowed us to have the freedom to ask more questions (and get them answered) and it gave us a much more personal connection with Kathryn. We felt very well looked after and learnt so much. Because of her knowledge and positivity, I was able to feel confident in choosing to have my breeched baby delivered naturally.
Thank you Kathryn for all you shared and helped us through!
