Private antenatal classes are available online during COVID-19 restrictions. Get in touch to ask any questions or to arrange dates. For group antenatal online visit here.

Looking for private antenatal classes in Cheltenham, Gloucester or surroundings? Some parents prefer to have 1-2-1 antenatal classes in the comfort and privacy of their own homes rather than group classes. Or perhaps have just run out of time to book onto a full antenatal course. I regularly teach private antenatal classes both online to parents all over the UK, and in person in Cheltenham, Gloucester and surroundings. I also travel all over the country so if you’re further afield and would like a personalised and tailored course then let’s talk!  

Online courses are live and delivered via Zoom (available on laptop/tablet/phone). We discuss in advance what you would like to cover and I deliver the session as I would if in person with you with lots of opportunities for questions. It is really easy and straightforward. No worry about travel or comfort and you can even be in your PJs!

Classes are designed to meet your needs – no two courses are the same – but an example of some of what I can offer includes the following:

  • Early pregnancy classes – unsure about what to expect during your pregnancy? Perhaps you want to navigate the minefield of what you need to buy for your new bump?
  • What to expect during labour, birth and early days with a newborn. Understand what may happen during labour, how to cope, pain management options and what to expect during those early days with a newborn.
  • Caesarean birth preparation – Having a planned caesarean and want to know what to expect, what your options are (yes you have some!), what to expect during recovery and in the early days?
  • Practical baby care – never held a baby before? Unsure how to change a nappy or how to bath a baby? The practical baby care class gives you the chance to have a go and pick up lots of practical hints and tips for looking after your baby when he/she arrives!
  • Refresher courses – Take some time out to focus on your new baby. Reflect on previous birth experiences and consider your birth options for this birth. Other topics can include introducing your baby to a sibling.
  • Grandparents workshops – Is this the first grandchild in the family and feeling a little rusty? Would grandparents like to get up to date on the current guidance and advice for pregnancy, birth and parenting?
  • Or even a bespoke Relaxed Birthing package! We can work together to identify what you would like to cover during your course and design a course to meet your needs.

These classes can also be added to private or group hypnobirthing classes too!
