New Life Classes deliver evidence-based antenatal classes taught by midwives in Bristol and Bath, which include baby first aid. We create small groups of expectant parents who want to build their knowledge and confidence for birth and parenting; As well as finding a new set of local friends to support them through the newborn days and beyond! (We love seeing pics of our groups still hanging out as they’re babies grow into toddlers and even start heading off to school.)
We understand everyone’s experience of pregnancy, birth and parenting is different. So, our midwives simply give you practical, evidence-based information to help you make informed choices, and support you in those choices – without judgement.
To help us develop a balanced antenatal class programme we spoke a wide number of doctors, midwives and private health specialists. We also spoke to hundreds of parents about what they wish they knew before having babies and included common themes into the course. We update our programme regularly to keep up-to-date with current research, as well as our customers feedback.

Free antenatal course
Don’t worry if you don’t live in Bristol or Bath, or if you can’t afford to pay for group antenatal classes. We now offer a completely free antenatal course too – set up during lockdown when the NHS stopped running their classes, as we didn’t want people to miss out on vital antenatal education! More than 1,250 people have already benefited, countrywide.
As well as our antenatal courses we offer a series of Wellbeing Toolkits, to help expectant parents manage their physical and emotional wellbeing during pregnancy and childbirth. Whether it’s your first or subsequent pregnancy , there is something for everyone, with a wide range of tools and relaxation practices you can pick and choose what works for you.
