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.

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 22nd February from 11.00-13.00, eight weeks after the latest expected due date, allowing for any late arrivals!
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 Facebook 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 pack of teaching materials on a session-by-session basis, videos and extra reading links on the topics covered in each session.
Your ticket includes a place for your partner. This is because we think both of you should ideally attend the classes together. We have a lot of content for Dads and birth partners, as they play such an important role! We advise both you and your partner attend the classes together. 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.
