Bedminster Jul-Aug 2020 due dates (digital)

28 April @ 19:00 - 9 June @ 21:00


If your baby is due in either July or August 2020, this is a great place to meet other new parents expecting their babies at the same time as you. Each class runs with at least 5-10 couples, helping you to build a strong social group before your baby arrives.

**COVID-19 update (18.03.2020): In light of the latest Government guidance that pregnant women should socially-distance themselves for the next 12-weeks New Life will be running fully interactive digital antenatal classes.**

Our Bedminster antenatal class programme is taught over seven consecutive Tuesday evenings on the following dates:

  1. 28th April
  2. 5th May
  3. 12th May
  4. 19th May
  5. 26th May
  6. 2nd June
  7. 9th June
  8. 16th June Baby First Aid (optional £20 per person)

The virtual meeting room will open at 6.30pm for a 30 minutes socialising with your group. Teaching will run from 7pm – 9pm. There will then be an additional 30 minutes of socialising with the group for those who want to chat.

  • The classes will still be taught LIVE by one of our midwives
  • You will be able to SEE and CHAT to other members of your group during the classes
  • Enjoy small group discussions and social get-togethers in our virtual breakout rooms
  • Sessions will be recorded for your group (only) to access at a later date – if you miss a session for any reason.

“Despite current circumstances, we cannot recommend and praise Iona and the New Life team enough! The classes have run as normal via Zoom and have worked brilliantly, ensuring we all have time to get to know the other couples via breakout rooms whilst gaining all the knowledge and learning promised. Iona has been excellent in always been there for unlimited questions, worries and is always willing to help by providing extra information and reading around the current situation!
We would highly recommend New Life to all parents to be and can assure you unlimited to support for the adventure of parenting!!” Alessia & Davide, Bedminster May-June 2020 due dates

Unless Government advice recommends differently, the course reunion will take place on Saturday 17th October from 11.00-13.00, giving you time to settle into family life!

Your birth partner

Your ticket includes a place for your partner. As we think both of you should ideally attend the classes together. We have a lot of content for partners (mums and dads) and birth partners as they play such an important role! If you’re a single parent, we recommend you bring a friend or relative to the class. Or you might like to mix and match, thinking about who will be supporting you in labour and the early postnatal period.

Midwife-led classes

New Life classes are taught by midwives. They are a fantastic resource to have at your fingertips! We encourage all our couples to ask them any questions whether in class, or between sessions via the private WhatsApp group or by email if it’s more personal. Plus, they’re available right up to the reunion with your babies!

Additional benefits

You will also receive access to a digital teaching platform with materials to download for class, videos and extra reading links on the topics covered in each session. Plus, all our classes customers get a 10% discount in our online shop – newlife.style.
