Downend Jul-Aug 2020 due dates (digital)
29 April @ 19:00 - 10 June @ 21:00£295
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 antenatal class programme is taught over seven consecutive Wednesday evenings on the following dates:
- 29th April
- 6th May
- 13th May
- 20th May
- 27th May
- 3rd June
- 10th June
- 17th 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.
“I am thankful New Life have managed to move their classes onto Zoom rather than cancelling them and they have put a lot of thought into how they will work as much like a real life class as possible. I would definitely recommend them!
The content is presented in an engaging way, with the ability to ask questions via the chat feature. They use polls to ask us questions and split us into ‘break out’ rooms to enable us to discuss topics with other couples. We are also able to socialise with the other couples, both before and after the sessions, and now on Friday lunchtimes too via Zoom chats. We do feel like we are getting to know the other couples even though we are unable to actually meet up! ” Charlotte & Ed
Unless Government advice recommends differently, the course reunion will take place on Saturday 24th 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.
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.
