antenatal classes

We offer classes for first-time parents and refresher classes for those who have already had a baby. And you don’t just have to live in Teddington to come to our classes as we cover the surrounding local areas including Hampton, Twickenham and Kingston.

Our classes are relaxed in style, and our aim is to impart evidence-based, practical information in an unbiased way to enable you to feel confident in making choices which are right for you and your baby. Issues such as pain relief in labour and breastfeeding are individual choices, and our role is to inform and advise you in a non-judgmental way.

We encourage partners to attend, but you are more than welcome to come by yourself. The classes are practically-based and there will be some group work.

We hope that you will not only feel much more confident about events ahead but also have fun and meet other parents-to-be. Every couple is unique and our classes are conducted with that in mind.

The best time to start your antenatal classes is between 32 – 36 weeks of pregnancy, although you can attend the homebirth class at any stage.
