New Life Classes deliver evidence-based antenatal classes taught by midwives in Bristol and Bath. We offer a genuine alternative to traditional antenatal classes, for first-time parents looking for something a little more comprehensive.
Practical, evidence-based antenatal classes
We want to start you on, what is probably, the most exciting journey of your life being well-informed, feeling empowered and having confidence in your body’s ability to cope. Which is why a group of experts helped us develop our highly practical, evidence-based antenatal course material. We understand everyone’s experience of pregnancy, birth and parenting is different. So, we simply give you the tools to make informed choices, and support you in those choices – without judgement or opinion.
The course is six sessions over a five-week period, and includes a postnatal reunion once your babies have arrived. We explore all sorts of topics that will get you ready for your baby’s arrival, including many you might not have thought about. Such as, relationship changes, your mental health and wellbeing, and how to have a positive birth experience, if things deviate from your preferences.
Expert support from a dedicated midwife
All of our classes are taught by registered midwives. Their extensive professional experience is a great resource for you both within your antenatal classes, and in the extra support they offer you in this exciting journey into parenthood. Whether via the class Facebook group – or private chats, if you have more personal questions, even between sessions.
Find new friends
Meeting other parents-to-be in your area is another important reason to book onto private antenatal classes. Meet like-minded people, and start building a fantastic support network for the early days with your baby – and beyond!
