COVID-19 update: Due to coronavirus and the current social distancing measures in place, all of our antenatal classes are taking place on Zoom. But just because we have to social distance, doesn’t mean we aren’t still social! We’ve adapted the programme to make sure you have plenty of time to get to know the other parents-to-be in your group – as well as keeping the classes interactive, with lots of time to ask questions. Check out our FAQs page for more information.
Downend Jan-Feb 2021 due dates
28 October @ 19:00 - 9 December @ 21:00£295
If your baby is due in either January or February 2021, this is a great place to meet other new parents expecting their babies at the same time as you. Each class runs with between 5-10 couples, helping you to build a strong social group before your baby arrives.
Our antenatal class programme is taught over seven consecutive Wednesday evenings from 19.00 – 21.00.

- 4th November

If you can’t make any of these dates, get in touch and we will try to find an alternative session in one of our other classes – we try to be as flexible as possible so you don’t have to worry about missing any content!
The course reunion will take place on Saturday 8th May 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.
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!
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.
