Hello Baby first timers courses are led by an experienced midwife and a hypnobirthing practitioner, both of whom are mums to two young children.

 

As well as preparing you for labour and birth, our comprehensive sessions will give you lots of practical tips to help you transition into life with a newborn. Informative and evidence-based, you will learn everything you need to help you navigate the first few weeks, as well as meeting a group of other local parents-to-be who can share the journey with you.​

Each course comprises six two-hour sessions held on weekday evenings (usually Wednesdays 19:30-21:30, except the infant feeding session which is 19:15-21:30), with an additional guided relaxation session. It is recommended that you start a course at 26-32 weeks of pregnancy, but it's entirely up to you!
