Why work for us?

At New Life Classes, we believe parents should be given the tools, professional support and compassion to approach birth and parenting with confidence, especially if things don’t go to plan. Our vision is to eradicate feelings of failure, and positively impact postnatal depression rates in the UK.

To do this, we worked with a team of midwives, doctors and health professionals and developed a detailed, evidence-based antenatal course that looks at all aspects of birth, feeding and the early days with a newborn; offering parents lots of practical tips and coping strategies.

We provide

  • Training
  • A detailed teaching manual
  • A complete teaching kit
  • Ongoing support
  • Opportunities for professional development.

Emma Scourse has been teaching our classes since July 2016, this is what she says about working for New Life Classes:

“I love teaching for New Life Classes. The courses include mums and dads, so I can teach new parents using evidence-based information at a good pace. The classes are fun and interactive, and the reunion after the babies are born is incredible – I love hearing the stories of how the information I provided in class helped parents through labour and the early days. New Life Classes enables a continuity of care I don’t often get to experience in my general midwifery work anymore. They give me the information, props, space and time to arm parents with the knowledge they need to make their own decisions around birth and the transition to parenthood. The team go above and beyond to make the company work well and to support me. The biscuits are delicious too.”

From March 2016 to January 2020 we’ve already supported more than 1,800 new mums and dads in Bristol and Bath. Help us make a real difference in people’s lives and apply to join our team today!
