Our Baby Club Antenatal 

A relaxed and friendly, informative five week course created and taught by local modern parents for modern parents to be! You'll get all the latest stats based research presented and discussed with you in an honest and unbiased forum - always sprinkled with some lovely interactive activities and a smattering of humour! Not to mention plenty of delicious refreshments and an array of socials with your newly made gang of friends!

We'll always ask you at the beginning of the course what you really want to hear about, meaning our course is comprehensive yet tailored to the interests of each group - no subject is off topic in this class! And due to the interactive nature of the classes and all the wonderful conversation that stem the content can vary slightly. So the list below is just a guide to the topics that we cover.
