Our refresher antenatal classes bring you a modern approach to antenatal and postnatal education.  Our sessions are parent centred and are all about YOU; they are inclusive, non-judgemental and balanced. Our refresher antenatal courses are not designed to revisit everything you know already, but to refresh you in the key areas and to guide you with the changes that are about to happen with your growing family. We want to ensure you have all of the information required to make the best decisions for you and your family. The course is designed to meet various learning styles and techniques to keep it interesting and you are involved every step of the way whilst also having a fun. Our group sessions have a sociable element to the sessions in the hope you can make some lasting friendships with other families that also have multiple children.
