“Enrolling in this classes was the best decision my husband and I could have done. If you are pregnant and wondering if this is the right course for you, know I could not recommend it more! Not only did we learn all the essentials (and much much more), we also received genuine care from the entire team. The teachers are amazing and the materials relevant and up to date. They are tailored to every type of couple and birth plans. In addition, we were paired with other amazing couples, with whom we still maintain a warm relationship, sharing tips, worries and laughs almost on a daily basis.” Ana & Pedro, Bedminster

“I was very skeptical about doing a private antenatal course but doing the New Life course has been such a great experience for me and my partner and I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone. It is full of useful, evidence-based information which is presented in a fun and non-judgmental way – I feel prepared for the end of my pregnancy/birth/having a baby without feeling pressured or scared. It’s great that the courses are run by working midwives, who can give such useful firsthand knowledge and no question is ever too silly! The online resources are great and I’m sure will come in useful in the future. It’s been lovely to meet other people in the same situation and have that social connection going forward.” Lizzie, Bishopston

“The New Life Classes have been the perfect way to meet families in a similar situation and to make lifelong friends. The information in class, booklets, support websites and videos have been incredibly helpful throughout pregnancy and early life with a newborn. Cat, who ran the classes was wonderful, honest and approachable.” Emily Mulligan, Bradley Stoke

“My husband Ceri and I attended the New Life classes at Westbury run by Carley. It has been a life changing experience, and every session taught us valuable skills both mentally and practically. Before coming to these classes my husband and I felt quite overwhelmed by the idea of birth and caring for a new baby. I can honestly say that we now both feel prepared and mentally ready to welcome our little one into the world.

I left every session feeling calm and confident, something I did not feel when leaving my NHS classes. Information is meaningless if not delivered in the right tone and manner; Carley was absolutely wonderful throughout! She is so approachable, fun and friendly; her support has been invaluable. She made everyone feel calm and at ease, even when discussing delicate subjects such as post-natal depression. We loved her honest approach to everything, and she answered every question with a non-biased mindset, a refreshing experience compared to one or two other midwives I have encountered.

We have also made some great friends along the way who we will certainly be keeping in touch with as we all start the exciting journey of parenthood together.” Jenna Fulford, Westbury-on-Trym antenatal classes
