We run a programme of seven antenatal courses each year in Westbury-on-Trym, you can find all the dates below. Ideally you will be between 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.
Dany Moore runs the Westbury-on-Trym antenatal classes. Her professional experience is a great resource for you both within your antenatal classes, and in the extra support she offers 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.
Dany qualified as a midwife in 2004 and has worked in a variety of settings from delivery suite, to the community. She is passionate about empowering women and their partners to make informed choices about their pregnancies, birth and the early days with their babies.
