Bristol: Fishponds

We run a programme of six antenatal classes in Fishponds each year, you can find the upcoming dates below. Ideally you will be approximately 28-32 weeks pregnant at the start of your antenatal class, so there is some flexibility on which course is best for 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.

Course Leader

One of our registered midwives will teach the Fishponds antenatal classes. Their 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.
