We run a programme of six antenatal classes in Bath each year, which are organised by due dates – scroll down to find the classes which give you the opportunity to meet other first-time parents whose babies are due around the same time as you.

Birth partners play an important role in supporting you at all stages in your journey to becoming a parent – we therefore advise that your birth partner attends antenatal classes with you, whether it’s the Dad, a relative or friend. Our course fee includes your birth partner, there are no extra costs.
