Pregnancy and Parenting' classes give you an opportunity to find out what you need to know when expecting a baby.  They are a great way to make new friends, and meet others who will be sharing the same joys and concerns that you may have. Time and again, women tell us how important this is both during pregnancy, and in the early years of your child's life.

Learn about:

  • Health in pregnancy
  • Labour and birth
  • Coping with labour and the birth
  • Breastfeeding
  • Life with a new baby
  • Relaxation techniques
  • Where to find help when you need it
  • Tour of the maternity unit
